Good Pub Guide Recommended

Extended pub in fine scenery and open all day; popular food; bedrooms

Said to be the fourth highest pub in England, this place boasts spectacular moorland views and our readers make the most of the numerous surrounding hikes by staying in the comfortable bedrooms and enjoying the first class breakfasts. The low-beamed rambling bars have open fires, a few big high-backed rustic settles around cast-iron-framed tables, lots of small dining chairs, a nice leather sofa and stone walls hung with old engravings and photographs of the pub under snow (it can easily get cut off in winter - 40 days is the record so far). The fine choice of beers on handpump might include Black Sheep Best, Cropton Yorkshire Moors, Marstons Wainwright and Theakstons Best, Old Peculier and XB and Timothy Taylors Boltmaker, as well as 13 wines by the glass and several malt whiskies; background music and games machine.
