The Aidensfield Arms is in the centre of the village and the only public house in Aidensfield. Used as a 'local' by many of Heartbeat's characters, many storylines revolve around it and most of the later episodes usually end in there. The pub also accomodates guests with Bed and Breakfast, and starts doing meals to increase revenue when Lord Ashfordly puts up the rent.

George Ward owns the license to sell alcohol until the end of Series Seven until his niece Gina Ward takes it over after his death. The owner of the Aidensfield Arms is Lord Ashfordly until Series Eight when Oscar Blaketon buys it from him after coming into some money. Blaketon moves into the pub and helps to run it with Gina. When Gina prepares to marry PC Phil Bellamy, they ask Oscar to take over the license as Police officers are not permitted to be married to publicans. In the episode Changing Places, it was revealed that The Aidensfield Fire had been burning to commemorate Queen Victoria sheltering in a storm in 1860.



The Aidensfield Arms has a main bar room and a snug which are seen in most episodes, there are also another other breakfast room and several rooms upstairs for guests. The Aidensfield Fire is in the main room, along with other features such as the dart board and the curoius looking 'lock' of inter-laced swords from the Aidensfield Sword Dance hung on the wall by the enterance.
