Known as the "Bottom House", The Black Bull is actually Reeth's oldest surviving Inn and normally where you'll find the locals at the wee hours of the evening nursing a pint or two!
Expect classic flagstone floors, exposed beams, and a traditional country Inn fireplace in this classic Yorkshire Inn. They serve food also, but we recommend popping in for a quick nightcap before settling in at your overnight accommodation. Interesting fact - The pub is notorious for its sign being hung upside down due to a dispute licensee and the National Park Planning Authority.
Opening hours vary year on year and can be seasonal. Pubs may only open on certain days of the week and only for a couple of hours.
Pubs in Yorkshire (especially in small villages) are known to close if they are especially quiet in the afternoons or late in the evening - it's always worth calling ahead and let them know you plan to visit in the afternoon or to simply check they will be open to avoid disappointment on arrival.
COVID19 – The impact of the global pandemic is evident for all local businesses over Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Sadly, some pubs/hotels/restaurants/museums may have closed doors for good, some may be temporarily closed, and some may be open but will be operating under local guidance/restrictions from the UK government.
Depending on the dates you are walking, this may effect their normal operating hours, the number of people allowed in their property, the ability to serve customers indoors or outdoors, and in pubs it may even not be possible to serve alcohol at certain times of the day. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you check any pubs/cafe's/museums/tearooms/restaurants own website, social media or give them a call in advance of your visit. (were known we have given you the website and telephone number).
