Lovely old photo of the pub, by the clothes and bicycles I would guess 1920's or 1930's. If anyone else has a better guess or knowledge.
The opinions that I express are my own !! A Fan of SSOB products. Time for a pint of OBB

From the horse and cart, plus the "road" I would guess 1890's.

What a great pub,very nice managers and locals,beer was excellent and nice to see food doing well,well worth a visit,as for the picture,spoke to a local who told me the cart is a dray delivering beer well before SAMs owned pub,the chap in the hat with the beard his great grandson also ran the pub at some point(pre SAMs).Sams got both pubs when the Radcliffe family ran into problems with death duties and sold off a lot of their land and property in the 70s.

It appears the Radcliffe was once called the Kings Arms Inn.Trade directory for 1822 says the Harewood was run by a John Carter and the Kings Arms by Jeremiah Holmes.In the Yorkshire Gazette from 25 May 1822 it is described as two dwelling houses,double cottages,one the Kings Arms Alehouse and several closes of land to be sold.In the York Herald from 24 Aug 1833 it is for sale again described as freehold public house known by the sign of the Kings Arms adjoining Rudding Park wall with a yard,stables,workshop and other buildings.In 1896 a Young Lister,farmer and innkeeper of the Kings Arms was declared bankrupt,the hearing presided over by one Sir Percival Radcliffe of Rudding Park,wonder if he bought it as it adjoins his land and changed the name?,can't find any mention of a Kings Arms after 1896.Looking at the old picture its easy to see it was once two cottages.
Section of a map from 1890 shows the pub as Kings Arms.
