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!
