The dog-friendly Bridge Inn is a 15th Century coaching inn located in the picture postcard village of Grinton in the Yorkshire Dales.
The dedicated team work hard to maintain their excellent reputation for welcoming walkers (not to mention their muddy wellies and four-legged friends) and visitors to the area with the same warmth and cheer as they have for their regulars. The inn is known for its cosy atmosphere; there’s a wonderfully welcome roaring log fire throughout the winter months which helps banish any chill outside. The summer months sees visitors enjoying a drink outside soaking up the sun in the glorious Swaledale countryside.
The bar offers a wide range of CAMRA award-winning guest ales and the wine list, personally curated by the landlord, guarantees to please any palate. There’s also mulled wine available in the winter which is always a hit with the passing walkers.
The kitchen team are passionate about locally sourced and fresh ingredients. Using independent suppliers, they have created a varied menu which includes plenty of game, fish and vegetarian dishes alongside many pub favourites. We hear that the ginger sponge pudding with warm toffee sauce (made by the landlord’s mother) is a must.
The Bridge has 5 en-suite bedrooms, each decorated simply but with comfort very much in mind to rest the legs of the weary walker. Kids will love the bunk beds in the family room and dogs are welcome to stay for a small additional charge – just let the team know that you’re bringing one when you make the booking.
Grinton is a stunning village in the Yorkshire Dales. Country pursuits are abundant and the area is extremely popular with walkers who love the stone walls, undulating countryside, waterfalls and wildlife.
