The restaurant was set...

This is a 17th century building which oozes charm and hospitality. It is not on a par with Claridges but it is extremely good value for money. It is located in the village of Barbon which is about six miles from Kirkby Lonsdale. It has lovely lounge where you can enjoy a quiet drink or should you prefer, a typical...

Our daughter bought us 2 nights away on buyagift.com. I chose the Barbon Inn and was delighted. Although they were revamping the kitchen they still managed to serve up tasty meals on both nights. Well done to all staff, coping under difficult circumstances.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 Barbon serves traditional English cuisine with a modern twist. Specialty dishes using local produce with choices like confit duck leg served with dauphinoise potatoes, sautéed leeks and a rich blackberry sauce; menu choices change with the seasons. 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. The pastoral feel is added to by a local racetrack that holds the Barbon Hill Climb. ... more   less
