Community Pub & Dining

Situated in the heart of Crosby Ravensworth, The Butchers Arms is a community pub serving fresh homemade food & drinks in a relaxed & warming atmosphere.

The pub itself is said to date back to 1773 - in 2011, the pub was bought by over 300 people, who wanted to bring the pub back to life & back to the heart of the community.

The Butchers Arms is being run by Jon & Katie Metcalfe, who moved in & took over the public house on 8th March 2017.    Currently No. 1 pub in Cumbria according to tripadvisor!


The Butchers has a "self service Coffee & Cake Lounge" in the upstairs function room- providing a warm & relaxing atmosphere to meet for coffee and cake!
