“Second Visit - Just as absorbing. The third, on the cards”

Location, of course. And words fail. This visit, the smaller points become evident: the air is noticeably fresh, fresher even than in Barnard Castle [itself, fresh, pure, bracing - makes a Londoner weep!]; the fire, burning for over 100 years non-stop [a story here]; the pub's own snowplow; the sagas posted on the men's room walls; the interesting fellow-guests...


“Isolated, relaxed, welcoming!”

Everyone is welcome here. There are several rooms with open fires to gather in for drinks and bar meals. There are a few en suite bedrooms (not cheap but spacious, warm and with bath in bathroom), bunk house (4 to a room, bedding provided), or possibility of camping. We went for a club dinner and had the use of the...

“Lovely pub lunch”

We stopped here for lunch and everything was perfect! As we walked along the Pennine Way, the Tan Hill Inn loomed out of the mist. We were early for lunch but later on all the tables were full. It's dog friendly and you can sit anywhere with the pooches. There is always a fire burning - apparently it has been...


“Absolutely delicious food”

To put this into context, I'll have to admit that I've got a few miles on the clock when it comes to pub lunches - but I say this to emphasise the fact that I've just consumed one of my best ever pub lunches in 'The Tan'. - Home made chicken & leek pie with mash, veg & gravy...
