We were house hunting and saw the signs so decided to head for the Tan Hill Inn. On a cold but bright Friday it was busy but welcoming. The food was great and the beer excellent. We would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

We parked just yards away from the Tan Hill Inn the night before in our camper and never knew it was there, thanks to the Yorkshire mist! In the morning we decamped there for breakfast, and it didn't disappoint - friendly service and quality food.

Cycled from Reeth a circular route,with quick stop for a pint of ale, expensive at £3.80 otherwise faultless and will be returning in order to spend more time and enjoy more ales. Stunning location an iconic inn Highly recommended.

Drove up from Settle on a beautiful sunny day, would not attempt it in bad weather! Views are spectacular evening the roads are hairy and scary! Mother needed a stiff drink when we arrived which was served by a very friendly barman. Coffee good too. Busy little Inn that reeks of history. Not sure I'd stay there due to the...

I'm soooo sorry this happened. This was the down turn in our management skills. They walked out ( thankfully ) very very shortly after that and we are now back happy in all areas of customer service. The team will never behave so badly again.

We decided to drive up to tan hill inn as my partner had never been. It was a gorgeous sunny day and it was packed mainly with motorcyclists it seemed. There was a long queue to the bar but we were served in a reasonable amount of time. We shared a tuna ciabatta and a side of paprika potato skins.....

I first went to this remarkably located pub restaurant in the early 70's. Its stunning asset is certainly its surroundings, its casual dining and welcome to everyone. Dogs, sodden walkers and even sheep at one time. Food is plentiful, beers are from various breweries including their own about which they are rightly proud. Vegetarian food important to you? then don't...

We walked up to Tan Hill yesterday from Keld. We were all very impressed by the efficiency, food, service & ambiance, considering how busy the pub was. The change of management (after the ol management walked out without notice) has given a far better experience. The portion size of the roast dinner was enormous.! The singer had the voice of...

Disgraceful that no one let us know what was happening. Not to sure if this place has gone bankrupt? Anyway, after taking to a guy outside we were told to follow the road...
