On a lonely site high in the Yorkshire Dales stands a unique and historic place dating back to the 17th century. With its exposed beams, stone-flagged floor and welcoming fire, the Tan Hill Inn, Britain’s highest public house at 1,732 feet (528m) above sea level.
The Tan Hill Inn Situated on the Pennine Way
The Pennine Way runs 267 miles from Edale, in the northern Derbyshire Peak District, straight through us in the Yorkshire Dales, ending at Kirk Yetholm, just inside the Scottish border, this is where walkers brush shoulders with inquisitive tourists.

When I said we were up for sale. We were asked why not become a community pub! We took a look out of the window. Didn't see a single chimney pot?
UPDATE YES WE ARE FOR SALE £900K
Update- Thursday 27th Can't believe just how quick the press picked up this post . Within 1hr 30mins the press want the story .! 'Is there going to be a new landlord at UKs Highest Pub." ? Now they want to film a handover and the new landlord and landlady !!! Can't pay for that publicity! ... See MoreSee Less
Ivor RandleIf you were looking at semi retirement, I wonder if it would work as a national community pub? Groups pay a basic fee that covers costs and come and run the place (with your guidance, hence semi-retirement) as a profit share for a time. Maybe offer Friday through Monday or Monday to Monday as the options.
Imagine if the Home Counties MG Owners Club said "Right, we're running Tan Hill over August Bank Holiday weekend, we'll see you there"; you'd have every MG owner in the country camped out, eating and drinking.
There are probably half a dozen little folk clubs over Tyne & Wear, potentially one great folk weekender (and folkies are never ones to eat on an empty stomach).
Just a thought...

THE SPIRIT LEVELLERS The Spirit Levellers have been making music together since 2005 and their incendiary live performances have raised many eyebrows across this fair land. Their take on the music of The Levellers is precise, energetic and, most of all, from the heart. These guys really love what they do and they do it brilliantly. Every Spirit Levellers gig is better than the last one. And the last one was fantastic!
JAMES ROBSON & THE LOVELY BURN An alternative Americana-inspired duo from the North East featuring James Robson’s soaring, emotive vocals which combine perfectly with his sparse percussion and Chris Burn’s warm, country blues guitar. As Bob Fischer from BBC Tees so aptly put it; ‘James has the voice of an angel, even it’s a beardy angel from Darlington’!
JOE TREACY Joe Treacy is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Durham. Joe’s voice is rich and soulful, his songs contemplative and filled with acute, but poetic observations. Joe's bright guitar rhythm has progressed alongside his gig schedule leaving even the stillest of feet tapping. And he does a mean cover too!
