Overpriced food , burnt when it came out. Waited an hour for it , for people with 30 min wait offered free drinks. Service wasn't too good either. Wernt offered government 50 percent off others were ,apparently went live after we had paid. 2nd time we had been disappointing again Deffo wont be back this again
Beautiful, quiet, relaxing and the perfect day date. Will be back with suitable shoes so i can walk
Our meal was awful, Yorkshire pudding like a biscuit and everything else dried out
Fantastic day out amazing thank you well done team tan hill
Really friendly staff, lots of effort made to be covid compliant but food quite over priced for what was served and took 90 minutes to arrive.
Not recommended food bad and overpriced for what it was.
Fantastic meal at The Tan Hill Inn. Gorgeous food. Great service from friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of Covid precautions in place.
Could eat inside or outside. Good safety measures in place. Very helpful and friendly staff. The service was slow but it didn't matter because it's such a lovely place and it was quite busy because of the good weather. We will definitely be returning and hopefully stop over in the camper van.
We had booked a table for 13.30 and arrived in good time. We were shown to our table and ordering our drinks and food was fine. However, when the food had not arrived by 1420 I had to ask the waiter to "chase" it up for us. It arrived shortly after. We both had pie, me with mash and my wife with chips. They had run out of mushy peas and we got garden peas which I don't like. We were not offered alternatives. The gravy was very thin and I thought the meal was overpriced for what we got.
We had a fab time, the food was great and the staff couldn't have been more attentive A+ experience all round
Lovely day out Tan Hill was the icing on the cake pleasant surroundings lovely welcoming staff nothing was too much trouble. Ample portions neither of us finished our meal needed to go for a walk after to help digestion. Will visit again
The views were amazing, we sat inside to eat our lunch which was pie with home made chips peas and gravy, which was very tasty. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, we will definitely return
Lovely lunch. Delicious food and excellent service. Views are incredible.
The meal, Pie and mash was small. For approx £13 I would expect more food and a bigger pie.
Also we paid a deposit for a van space, however there were no spaces left, so had paid a deposit for nothing. When I asked the staff, he said the £10 I paid will be a charity donation, not on that I had to pay to park on the national park land.
Great place to stay but the table service indoors very poor. Had to ask for drinks and when food was arriving more than once. The food was good as we where late it looked as though some ingredients where missing. No rice for a veggie curry. Will go back as the beer was excellent
Having never eaten here before, we were slightly disappointed. Found the menu not very exciting and over priced for what they had to offer. There was nothing wrong with the meals we had (steak pie and lamb shank), just not good value for money.
Very organised during the Covid Pandemic. One way system in place, details taken. Pressed bell on entry and complete table service. Food excellent as always.
We enjoyed our Bed and breakfast stay with you however, it would have been nice as a guest to have a little more priority over others that had just turned up. We waited an hour for our evening meal and didn’t mind as we were happy chilling with a few drinks but I feel the waiting staff could be a little more approachable. The breakfast was lovely but it would also be good if you could over a couple of alternatives ie cereal/porridge and maybe have a couple of other options other than a full English for example smoked salmon and poached eggs on toast etc.
When we checked out it would have been nice to have been asked if we had a nice stay etc or to have had some sort of communication other than “just drop your keys there”
Overall it was a lovely stay and we will be returning again.
Welcoming pub with a decent menu and friendly staff who have taken a lot of trouble to implement social distancing and keep customers safe while giving them an atmospheric night out in England's highest pub. Spent a very enjoyable evening after a long day's walk.
Food nice but a long 45 mins wait but was told that when I arrived.
Distinctly below average. Very long wait for food (approx 50 mins) and we noticed people being served before us. Not happy. The food was lovely though.
I would only recommend Tan Hill Inn to those who want food at the UK's highest Inn or those who just wanted to say "I've been there".
We booked via their site and yet still had to cue, in the rain, to get in.
Not in a hurry to go back.
Great place to eat fish and chips fab steak pie pretty good too the baguettes also very good
Obviously not as good as usual because of social distancing. All depending on where you are sat, depends on the ambience. On way system in operation, food was OK, altho not as plentiful or as nice as usual (pie was superb, veg were poor... mushy peas!)
But overall they are trying to do a decent job in awkward situation. Outside toilets are... well....different. portaloos are not my idea of pub toilets, but they were clean. Don't think I shall be pubbing it again (to any pub) until this situation eases and we can get back to normal.
The location is superb and always visit here on my trips to The Dales.
We booked for a 12 table unfortunately we were running late but called beforehand and informed that we would be late. It wasn’t that busy when we arrived and we decided that a starter or soup would be quick and easy and get us on our way sharpish . Service was good but unfortunately the soup took 40 mins to arrive. It’s soup it doesn’t take that long so why take that long and a prompt from us when the a couple after us get their meals before us.
It was meant to be in and out but ended up a long drawn out affair , maybe next time look at what is waiting and serve them quicker and clear the tables quicker , a win win for everyone
Overall I would recommend the Tan Hill for a night out but I'm afraid both my wife and myself thought that the food was not up to the standard we had hoped for, the fish and chips we had, should have been better, the chips where under done and the fish was over cooked,but the sticky toffee pudding was very good. The service was very good.
Should not advertise free wifi when its obvious it's very difficult to get on line.
Otherwise top notch .I would like to go when there is a band on icann imagine it would be fantastic. The staff need the wifi to operate the tills etc but my 10 year old boy wasn't very happy lmao ....excellent
The food was absolutely diabolical and the cost high. The service was fine, the staff were very pleasant.
Visit planned with family who had an amazing experience last year. Unfortunately same couldn't be said for this visit. Food service slow, waited 45 minutes. Burger was dry, half the food was cold and the chips were undercooked. Everyone appeared confused due to covid rules, social distancing wasn't being practised. Overall poor experience, will take a picnic next time.
We really enjoyed our visit. The food and service was excellent.
The food and staff were amazing. I found it frustrating sometimes to do the booking of a table on line especially when your sat in the pub with the staff and computers there.
I understand it is because of Covid but that is the only criticism.
We booked for 16:00 and when we arrived there were still people at the table. We waited 1.5 hours for our main course. When the main course arrived the gravy was burnt. We also ordered a child’s meal for my 2 year old grandson which arrived on a piping hot plate and the child’s meal was even too hot for an adult.
Best Sunday lunch I’ve had in a long time. Had to wait nearly an hour from ordering food to delivery on table because they’d overbooked. Took our dog which wasn’t an issue, lovely spacious barn area set up for eating was perfect for our family. Waiting staff were all lovely
View Fabulous. Service Not so.. Dreadful breakfast Friday Morning (which we waited for an hour to receive). Complained to manager and also advise that we had a party of nine for Sat Evening Meal. Received Sat Breakfast to make up and assurance that the party of 9 would be sat in the barn. We turned up at our booked time to be told we were seated outside and we had to wait as no tables. Waited for the manager to come with the hope of him remembering the conversation he had had the morning before to which he denied and then said he would go see what he could sort out. Over 45 minutes to an hour later we gave up waiting at the front door of the establishment and went back to our vans and made our own tea. . We won't be returning anytime soon.. You can't blame COVID 19 for bad manners .. we had in our party friends that had been before and were appalled by the service this visit . Such a shame as a very beautiful place ..
As always the Tan Hill did not let us down in these strange times. Service was on point, all done from your table. Drinks came quickly as did the food.
The atmosphere inside the pub was amazing, it has a unique feel to it with everyone happy enjoying some food and beers.
Would I recommend- of course get your tables booked.
Travelled from York with family to see the Tan Hill highest pub. Unfortunately due to social distancing we were led through the pub to the barn where we were sat to eat. Didn’t therefore get to see the pub! We waited over an hour for 8 meals and by the time the last meal arrived the first meal had nearly been finished.
The barn is heated by a wood burner but because it was so windy (as it usually is) the barn was filling with smoke which was very uncomfortable.
The pub was clearly trying to make social distancing work but staff were struggling and service was poor. Personally I think the pub is accepting too many customers as it was a lot busier than I was expecting.
Not the best experience.
Food: ordered fish and chips which were both over cooked.
Service: Taking into account COVID-19, staff should be praised for their hard work, walking back and forth to tables, taking and delivering orders while wearing uncomfortable masks.
The whole pub experience is much different now wherever you go. No excuse for serving overcooked food.
Should have said something but didn’t, probably because of the circumstances. Try harder with the food!!
Love coming up to the Tan Hill. 6 of us stayed a night camping on Friday, we all had food at night and in the morning. Could tell the menu has been reduced slightly but you can’t blame that in the current climate, there was nothing wrong with the food we had, although a few more chips would have been better with my chicken and chips, all very good quality but there was probably enough chips for a 1/4 chicken not the 1/2 chicken on offer. Prices didn’t feel too bad, you can’t expect it to be cheap at this sort of place that can only make money half the year. The service was ok, only really hindered by the restrictions making getting hold of the staff a bit awkward at times and orders got lost not printed out so in the end I did have to go to the bar to get the drinks we’d been waiting 20 mins for. Not a complaint it’s just teething issues.
I did think the breakfast was a bit dear for what it was, same with the packed lunch one of the chaps ordered. I think each being circa £2.50 cheaper would have sat better.
All in all I love the place, will gladly return and I’d happily organise another trip up there for a few mates like I did this time!
We went to the Tan Hill quite a few years ago and had an amazing experience. This time no so great, we understand with covid etc that service would be slow so no complaints there, but we saw pictures of the food before we went and when we got the food it was very disappointing, small portions and for the price was not value for money at all. We asked for sauces with the food but didn’t get them until we’d almost finished the meal. I’m afraid this time around the experience was not as good.
Absolutely appalling service when we stayed here last week . I was expecting service to be a little slower due to covid but a 2 hour wait to receive very basic warm food is not satisfactory.
When we eventually received our bill we discovered that another tables food and drink were on it .
The hotel is beautiful but the restaurant was complete chaos and food nothing special.
