3 pint glasses filled with beer

After completing the NY3P challenge, what better way to end your journey than a visit to a local Yorkshire Dales pub for a refreshing drink? In this post, we mention some of our most favoured pubs in the local area. Where you can always expect great drinks, roaring fires, friendly locals and stunning views.

The Crown Hotel, Horton in Ribblesdale

Recently re-decorated, The Crown Hotel is warm and cosy in winter where the log fire gives off a warming glow. And in summer, there is a cool atmosphere with opportunities to make use of the spacious beer garden outside. Not to mention the impressive views of Pen-y-Ghent! The Crown has been Cask Marque approved. So you can expect a quality pint from here. On the menu are favourites such as Theakston’s Old Peculiar, Black Sheep and other guest beers. Or if you aren’t as much of a fan of traditional ales, why not try a glass of wine, liqueur or even a malt whisky?

The Golden Lion Hotel, Horton in Ribblesdale

The Golden Lion Hotel in Horton in Ribblesdale features a selection of traditional hand pulled ales, as well as cider, Guinness and keg beer. This Yorkshire Dales pub has been awarded various accolades for its quality of pint. Including Camra pub of the season and Theakston grand master trophy, an award The Golden Lion is proud to say they have achieved three times now! Although there is a large, comfortable, carpeted lounge available, complete with log burner, we feel after a long day of participating in the 3 peaks challenge, you will love nothing more than relaxing in the Tap Room. An ideal space for those involved in outdoor activities that welcomes people in walking boots and also their dogs!

The Old Hill Inn, Chapel Le Dale

An ancient establishment bursting with character, The Old Hill Inn dates back to 1615 where it was originally a farm and drovers inn. It even hosted Winston Churchill during the summer months when he would come here to hunt and fish for his holidays! Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, this pub sits between Ingleborough and Whernside. And in our opinion, is perfect for a pint of crisp and refreshing beer! And with homely, roaring log fires and open beams, why go anywhere else?

The Buck Inn, Malham

The Buck Inn, Malham is a Yorkshire Dales family pub located in the traditional farming village of Malham. It was built in 1874 as an old coaching inn on the Pennine Way. In the present day, participants of the NY3P challenge can expect a warm welcome at this lovely family owned establishment. And of course, enjoy the spectacular scenery that surrounds it.

The Lister Arms, Malham

Are you looking for the perfect excuse to leave the ‘everyday’ behind? If so, The Lister Arms in Malham could be just the ticket! Featuring an ample selection of Thwaites ales and crisp white wines, fruity reds, spirits and mixers, there really is something for everyone at The Lister Arms. So if you have had a busy day participating in the NY3P challenge, what better way to finish off your journey than for a relaxing, refreshing drink as you take in the stunning scenery of the surrounding North Yorkshire Dales and treat your four-legged friend to a homemade biscuit?
