Dine with Your Dog

You can dine with your dog in the bar area of the hotel which serves exactly the same delicious menu as in the main restaurant. The Inn has won many awards for its food which is innovative with a field to fork approach. The hotel breed their own pedigree shorthorns and rare breed pork; the roe deer and red deer venison they serve is from their woods and fells. They also grow seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs in their kitchen gardens at Askham Hall, just two miles down the road. They forage the land for wild garlic, mushrooms and berries and their free-range fell lamb comes from their own flock of Rough Fells which is looked after by the Inn's owner Charles up on the fells above Askham. They are guardians of the fell, making the most of the rich variety of herbs and grasses it offers, which gives them a wonderful rich flavour. Head Chef Gareth Webster, an exceptional talent, changes the main menu regularly, depending on what produce is brought in by the gardeners and local suppliers. Especially recommended are the fresh pies that Gareth makes daily!

Bow wow factor

Must be their super dog-friendly ethos - owner Charles loves dogs and they will feel totally at home in this super stylish relaxed Inn with their own doggy welcome kit and fabulous walks from the door.
