Valentine’s romance at The Staveley Arms

We are operating our normal opening hours over the Valentine’s period, with a Specials menu running alongside our usual Mains. Join us on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as romance blossoms in North Stainley!

ABBA Sensation at Masham Town Hall – February 26 

ABBA may have ‘gone virtual’ on us, but this winter, we’re seeing them in human (tribute) form! ABBA Sensation will run through the band’s repertoire of hits including Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia and Waterloo. Put on your best platform heels and get down to Masham Town Hall on Saturday February 26. 

Tickets cost £15 per person. Find out more here. 

Lightwater Valley 10K – March 12 

Did you make a resolution to get fit this year? By March you’ll more than have burnt off all those Christmas indulgences. Give yourself a new goal with the Lightwater Valley 10K, which kicks off from the Lightwater Valley car park at 11:30am. As you run through those undulating Yorkshire hills, remember, it is all for a good cause – North Stainley Primary School. You can even cool off with a pint at The Staveley Arms afterwards. 

Entries cost £15 for affiliated runners or £17 for non-affiliated. Find out more here. 

Ripley Castle Round – March 16
