The pub food is not as good as it was now they have got new owners. And the chips are horrible not like they where, they are not proper Tan Hill Chips. Just been up today and it was a pity that the chips were not like they use to be. Other wise it's great pub.

It's the best pub/restaurant for miles around (it's the only pub/restaurant for miles around). Dark, warm and welcoming at any time of the year and the log fire is kept glowing all year round. It's exactly what you'd expect from the 'Highest Pub in England', it's a climbing/walking/cycling sort of pub which if you're really lucky in the snow covered months, may be your accommodation, entertainment and only refuge from the worst of winters ravages in this location. The only down side is that dogs are allowed in the bar and when you get 2-3 sniffing around your ankles in the dark interior it can be less than settling. That aside, if you're near there, drop in, if it's good enough for 'Ted Moult' then it's good enough for me...

We drove through the moors, ending up at the Tan Hill Inn, Britain's Highest pub. It was Sunday so we had roast pork for lunch, which was excellent. The pub itself couldn't feel more like an iconic British Pub, but this one sits in isolated splendor in one of the most beautifully desolate places I've ever seen. It's right on the Pennine way a major walking path, and has a constant flow of walkers, and travellers from all over the world, which makes the company as interesting as the place itself. It feels like something out of a Brontë novel... with beer.

We walked in to see shabby carpets and dust, then we went to order drinks which was stalled because he took a call we didnt dare try the food
Before, breaking records they should try being a good old local pup

Came here with North of England Trike Tours. It was quite early but the pub was filling up quickly. The food was excellent as was the raspberry cider! The fire was inviting and the whole place has an olde worlde charm. It certainly doesn't need updating, that's exactly the way it should be.
