The Barbon Inn, Kirby Lonsdale

A warm, welcome awaits you at The Barbon Inn - a family run, traditional 17th century Coaching Inn. The Barbon Inn and Restaurant near Kirkby Lonsdale has been around since the 1650s and started life as a farmhouse. Situated in the peaceful and tranquil village of Barbon, this country inn offers old world elegance in its accommodation restaurant and pub.


The inn has an excellent wine list which has been a labour of love for one of the owners, and she will help you select from the connoisseurs list.


The Barbon Inn has 10 bedrooms one with a four-poster bed. It's located halfway between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park which makes it the perfect base for exploring both.

This year will be our 14th anniversary. Our beer garden which has recently been altered and we can accommodate lots more people for al fresco dining. John Barnes and Jim Huddlestone laid a patio area in the garden by the entrance and we furnished it with rattan furniture which is comfortable and very popular.


We have created a warm and cosy atmosphere by opening up all the fires and burn logs in the cooler months this creates an atmosphere that only real log fires give.
