Tan Hill Inn – Highest Pub in England

Tan Hill Inn – Highest Pub in England

Tan Hill Inn

The Tan Hill Inn is the highest pub in the British Isles at a whopping 528m above sea level. It also sits slap bang in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You may ask yourself why would a pub be so popular there?

Not only is the welcome warm, the beer cold and the food homely, the Tan Hill Inn is famous for the beautiful scenery. It is a real ride-out destination, whether that is cars, motorbikes or cycling.

Head up to Tan Hill, which sits just off the A66, on a fine sunny day and enjoy a drink outside – you can even have a chat with some of the roaming sheep because they certainly aren’t shy!

We always stop off for lunch when we are on a jaunt out, the food is your basic pub food but it warms the cockles on a winter day and hits the spot in the summer. It’s a popular location all year round but when the weather takes a turn, the Inn is prepared. In 2009, New Years Eve revellers got snowed in and had to stay for 3 days until the roads were safe. Locked in a pub for 3 days you say? Oh what a hardship eh?!

Not only can you grab a pint and lunch, Tan Hill offer B&B and camping on site too. What better view to wake up to than rolling hills and countryside!

      It’s always the case, you go to the places on your doorstep less than places far away!
