Country Inn & Restaurant

Delicious pub food in a 17th Century inn

We invite you to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our country inn and restaurant, situated within easy reach of Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and close to the Lake District National Park.

We offer an extensive menu and winelist for food lovers, from light bites to our more adventurous mixed grill, tender sirloin steaks, homemade pub food favourites and daily specials.

Many of our ingredients are locally sourced using seasonal produce from farms in and around Cumbria. You can also choose from a fine selection of wines to accompany your meal.

Recent Guest Reviews

    • The restaurant serves delicious food from a nicely restrained menu. I had a rare steak (always a test of the quality of the meat) and it was beautiful!


    • The menu at first glance does appear to be typical pub grub but there the similarity ends because the quality of the food and the cooking is certainly well above “pub grub” standard, in fact we have dined in “starred restaurants” and many times the food has been of lesser quality than at The Head.


    • The food was excellent quality, good sized portions with fresh produce, cooked very well. Excellent value for money.


    • Although having our own little kitchen meant that we could have prepared our own meals if we’d wanted to, we dined in the pub on both evenings and the food was very good indeed. The breakfasts were also top notch and kept us going for the entire day.


    • We ordered food and it came really quickly and it was delicious 10/10 , we had soup, pate followed by Steak and Ale pie and Barnsley lamb chops cooked to perfection the menu was great, good choice!


    • David’s homemade chips are legend! Lovely honest grub, traditionally presented, in cared-for premises, very quiet and homely, and Elizabeth and David are lovely and very kind. Steak and kidney pie has a lot of flavour and you get a lot of prawns in your prawn cocktail starter.
