A brief introduction

My name is Rory Queen and with my daughter Emily we are the new owners of The Cresswell Arms.

I’m sure you have been watching the development of the property with interest. Since early March we took on the task to transform this wonderful Inn back to its former glory. No easy task with many problems along the way.

Emily and I simply want to share the progress with you all.

We have reached our target and are in the position to reopen. Of course, we still have much to achieve, as running a pub is a marathon and not a sprint.

As many will know I own and run Chapter Two Bar in Malton. Along with my dedicated, friendly and lovely team we will continue to do so.

We are opening The Cresswell Arms on Friday 7th August at 5.00pm. Initially, we will only be opening the bar and our fantastic accommodation giving us the chance to ensure all runs smoothly.

Phase two will be in early/mid-September when we will open our kitchens and dining experience. Our remit is offering quality food with a traditional theme. As I like to call it “Proper Food” cooked and served by a team of creative Chef’s lead by my head Chef Rob.

Of course, we will have to put in operation the social distancing regulations as I’m sure you will understand.

Finally, we thank you for accepting our little family to Appleton-Le-Street and together we can make The Cresswell Arms a true Social Local with something for all.

Kindest regards

Rory, Emily & all the lovely team
