The Border is a well known pub in the area and beyond. As well as visitors, it provides a warm and welcome place for visitors. On our visit it was busy (that is great to see). Despite this, the service was brilliant. Friendly staff in...More

A meal and some beer at the end of The Pennine Way. Great setting and food was tasty. I had the steak pie special and it was excellent as was the local beer. Swift service in a nice bar and restaurant.

Stopped at the Border after a lovely walk. Sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed both the drinks and the view. Finished our visit off with the best fish and chips I've had in a long time. Very friendly staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

There were a lot of delicious choices in the dining room at The Border Hotel, and we took advantage of their steak and ale pie and salmon entree. Service was friendly and prompt, even thought we had a large group. Would go back anytime.

Occupying a key position on the village green, the Border Hotel naturally dominates the village. Good ales and good food and very walker / cyclist friendly. Pennine Way walkers get a free 1/2 pint and completion certificate. A fitting end point.
