Welcome to the Dante Arms

a warm welcome to all eating and staying in Middleham


Watch the horses follow Dante’s route each morning


Fresh, home-made food that hits the spot

The Dante Arms is one of Middleham’s oldest pubs.

Originally the Black Swan, now relaunched with love by locals Sharon & Ken, the Dante Arms aims to reflect the rich racing heritage of the town.

The yard where Dante was trained is just behind the pub, and the dozen or so yards around the town all ride their horses up to the same gallops each morning.

The 7 bedrooms have been refurbished in a comfortable luxury style, the food is freshly prepared daily, from local suppliers and the bar is well-stocked with gins, local ales and wines from around the world.

Come and enjoy a warm welcome by the open log fire, the only beer garden in Middleham and bedrooms overlooking the town or the incredible Middleham Castle.

Sharon, Ken and the team look forward to seeing you soon x
