Thanks so much for stopping by!

Here at The Rock, we're mostly known for our cosy atmosphere,

our friendly, Yorkshire service and of course, our home-cooked,

traditional pub fayre. But we're becoming increasingly popular for our Sunday Lunches and more recently, our Gluten Free Menu, too. Yay!


If you're planning to visit us soon, it would be really helpful if you could book your table in advance using the online form on this site, but we'll always take as many Walk-ins as we can handle on the day!


If you're looking to visit us today, please give us a call instead, on 01937 530 948, just in case we don't get chance to respond to your booking request via email. We're open Wednesday to Sunday every week, including Bank Holiday Mondays.

We look forward to seeing you soon...

So, what's all the fuss about?

Eating out should be an experience to remember, for all the right reasons.

all have an equally important part to play in creating the perfect trip out.

offering a variety of regular customers and new, the ideal backdrop in which to relax over a bite to eat and drink.

(with options for vegetarians, vegans & dairy free diners, and a HUGE focus on gluten free meals),

Whatever the occasion, our small but dedicated team can cater for most.

So come along and join us for your business meeting, lunch break, birthday, anniversary, Bank Holiday, buffet,

Christening, hen party and Christmas functions. We've been told we're a dab-hand at these you know!

Our devoted team are always on hand to welcome you into our cosy but spacious, 'home away from home'...

What can I expect?

Built in the 18th Century as a traditional Country Inn,

The Rockingham Arms is located on the site of one of the last complete medieval battlefields in Europe,

which is famously known for hosting the bloodiest battle ever to be fought on English soil (Battle of Towton 1461).

The Battlefield Trail, that starts right on our doorstep, offers walkers and history buffs alike the chance to explore

one of Yorkshire's most notable landmarks at their own pace, with a conveniently placed pitstop (that's us!)

to visit either before, or after the walk. 

You can explore the battlefield at any time of year, either unaccompanied or as part of a guided tour,

and you can find out everything you need to know over at the Towton Battlefield Society's very own website,

which you can view here.

Here at the Rock, a traditional Yorkshire welcome from our friendly staff is a given,

as is a pleasant environment in which to enjoy some great British fodder with your loved ones. 

Boasting two comfortable function rooms, a dog-friendly beer garden, a real log burning fire

for those nippy Winter nights and a small team of staff with a passion for people, 

The Rockingham Arms experience is neatly wrapped up in a roadside village venue,

oozing with history and charm.

So, now that you know what we're all about,

when are you joining us?
