Often described as the Best Bar in Britain, the atmosphere in this building is without doubt, unique! 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. Recent renovations includes a complete new Westmorland slate roof which boasts Scandinavian levels of thermal insulation, a new sandstone flag floor and carbon neutral heating. Life has never been as warm! 2022 sees a complete renovation behind the bar to make sure our tasty stock can be served in tip top form.
The Bar is open between 4pm and 10pm everyday. We are open to all.
