Great Places to Eat

The Smithy Inn  Meet the locals at our village pub. You’ll find a friendly welcome, hearty home-cooked meals and great beer.  An easy walk after a long drive. Also serves breakfast on a Sunday, for those who like a beer with their bacon buttie.


The Old Beetham Post Office and Tea Room. We’ve discovered a local little-gem of a place for coffee and cake. A quaint, cosy village store and tea room with delicious homemade goodies, gifts, cards and wonderful eclectic artifacts. Painted furniture and workshops available. Phone: 015395 62389

No 17:  A short drive to Milnthorpe village. It’s a favourites of ours for a lunch treat on Market day.  Great food at good prices . Visit the weekly Friday Market.

For our all-time favourite Coffee and Cake Stops in Lancaster see our Tales From Tythebarn House blog post.

Lunesdale Bakery Kirkby Lonsadale: Bakery and Cafe. Real fires, brilliant food and friendly service. We love their soup. Leave time to wander around this picturesque Market Town.

Wolfhouse Kitchen, Silverdale: Their cakes, pastries and coffee are the BEST.

The Derby Arms  Witherslack. Real fires, dogs under the tables, cyclist and horse-rider stop-off,  and great pub food. There’s a Community Shop next door, where you can stock up on the local Damsons.

The Highwayman   Near Kirkby Lonsdale. We’ve not been here for a while, but it has a great reputation. The Highwayman, of Nigel Haworth fame, has been part of The Ribble Valley Inns since 2007.

Wagon and Horses  Lancaster. Well worth a lunch time stop while site-seeing in the city, or there’s Live music Thursday/Friday evening.
 Egg and Cress Sandwich: Wagon and Horses, Lancaster.
