The Bridge Inn, just a stroll from the site, is home to the annual ‘Biggest Liar’ competition - we kid you not, it’s a real thing!


The Bridge Inn has an excellent reputation for good food from our hearty Lakeland breakfast to their home cooked meals which are served either in the Dalesman Bar or the Eskdale Room. Both serve set menu as well as ever changing specials on their blackboards.

Portions are large and all made from fresh produce on the premises.

The Dalesman bar has a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy a drink or something to eat. The bar has a fine selection of Jenning's real ales and during the cooler days of the year a cosy log fire crackles and dances in the grate. Also dogs are welcome in the bar.
