Often described as the Best Bar in Britain, the Quiet Bar at The Quiet Site has a unique atmosphere! To many the bar represents a great place to swap stories and tales about the day’s events within ancient stone walls heated by a huge log fire.

The original building was erected in early 16th century.  It is attached to the farmhouse in the traditional Cumbrian Long barn style. The barn was rebuilt in 1680 and then again in 1752. The Barn was converted into a bar in 1963. Little has been changed to the main structure since the original conversion.

There is a separate playroom with table football and air hockey and pool.

The Bar is open between 4pm and 10pm everyday of the year.   We are open to all.  Live music most weeks.

The Quiet Bar


The bar sells a good selection of beers headed up by ales brewed at the local Tirril Brewery. These include Ullswater Blonde,

Premium Pilsner  and our latest offering – ‘The Quiet Pint’ – an ale guaranteed to satisfy even the hardest of fell walkers!
