Tucked away in a verdant London suburb, The Arkley serves modern British food with a Mediterranean twist in a refurbished pub with cushioned wicker chairs, wooden benches, large windows & nostalgic artwork adorning the walls. Enjoy a refreshing drink on the large patio during the summer, or cosy up on one of the many leather armchairs beside the fireplace in the bar area when the weather is colder.
With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, the Arkley menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.
The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at the Arkley bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.
Arkley Hotel in Barnet is just a 5-minute drive from High Barnet Tube Station.

We had a lovely evening at the Arkley. We tried two different flavoured gins which were really nice. The food was good and the staff paid special attention to a member of our group who has a nut allergy, apart from when they served her coffee with an almond biscuit but they quickly took it away. All in all, good food, good service and a pleasant atmosphere.

As usual a very warm welcome and with provision of a chair with arms.The menu was varied, the portions more than adequate and the staff friendly and attentive.

This was my first visit this year to the Arkley, and we have been occasional diners over several years. The bar and dining area has been nicely renovated since last autumn, with new (and comfortable) furniture. However, the 'makeover' has included a makeover of the lunchtime menu, now much shorter than it used to be with an emphasis on healthy eating. Nothing much wrong with that, though the featured dishes did not attract us. Pity, and I hope we don't have to wait till next autumn for a more attractive revise. PS the Dinner menu looked much more interesting.

The starters were not bad but the two roasts were awful .. lamb was tough, very dry, over cooked and only tasted of vinegar!! The oven baked prawn and lobster .. as a main meal was also dry.

We enjoyed out food very much and received excellent service. The only criticism would be that the roast dinners were a bit light on vegetables.
