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.
The Tan Hill Inn is a 17th Century Pub that is Full of History
The Tan Hill Inn is the highest inn in the British Isles at 1,732 feet (528 m) above sea level. The building dates to the 17th century and during the 18th century was used as a hostelry by workers digging coal pits.

Dog friendly, 17th Century Pub, Stay in one of our comfortable beds.
Just to relight the fire! (Last post was lost?! ) We are dog friendly, but if you have a dog that is excessively moulting please don't bring in, it is inconsiderate to other customers during and after you have left. You will be asked to leave if we think that you are lacking grooming skills,
Now let's get it right, 99% of dog owners have dogs that moult, (ours do and we have a Labrador and a cocker) we have around 20 dogs a day in Tan Hill and many at the same time, and we love it, but this picture clearly is offensive to the vast majority of dog owners and other non dog owners that wish to enjoy a clean dog friendly area and meal.. ...

Sashh AketYou either allow dogs or you don't. All dogs moult my dogs moult so much (spaniel and collie) no matter how many times they're groomed.
Make your mind up don't pick and choose what dogs can come in. Not very professional
Peter LevettI love how whenever Tan Hill post something which is just basic common sense all of the hater keyboard warriors appear, deliberately get the wrong end of the stick and then kick off. I'm sure that if Tan Hill said that it was snowing outside there'ld be plenty arguing that they were wrong and unprofessional and that they would never set foot in the place ever again (that is if they had actually ever been there in the first place). :-/Cue the unwarranted personal attacks on me now.
Val SimpkinSounds like it was a bit of an extreme instance - and whilst I agree that the owners of *that particular dog* should have had more care about the way they left the area they had been sitting in, not sure that this post was either necessary or helpful.
Julie JennisonQuite ironic really we stayed there 2 years ago and the place is filthy so this post is a classic! The rooms were fusty dirty with cobwebs and hairs everywhere! The venue and place I like but the owners (at that time) did not have a clue and needs hygiene educating!
Jacqui SmithSorry but we have come to the Tan Hill many times with the dogs on foot, they sit quietly under the table, neither moult and they are no bother to anyone. The problem here is not the majority of dogs but inconsiderate owners who do not groom their dogs properly. If you know your dog is going to make an unreasonable mess or is antisocial you do not impose them on others.
Carole ReedWe went to Tan Hill with our dogs...left them in the car for a bit with the windows open...we loved it so much we needed to stay all evening so the lovely bar staff told us to bring them in..where they sat posing in the bar getting treats from your wonderful chef...we loved the food too...just love it there x

Michael TiernanWhy do dog owners need to bring dogs in anyway? I'm a dog owner but never take her into establishments where food and drink is readily available.. I don't allow her to sit round the the table at home when we are eating so why should I allow it in pubs..
Everyone's different I guess.
Dave BanksWe've got 3 dogs and visit Tan Hill when we can as we're only a few miles away but, the dogs stay in the car, they really don't need to come in, they've already had their dinner and there's always water in the car for them anyway.
Pam RobinsonWe have a dog and will bring him with us when we come. He doesn't moult. All that dog fur/hair would give me asthma. Have you thought about laminate flooring or something similar instead of carpet? It would probably sweep up easier than using a vac. I would imagine you will get some quite muddy boots from walkers too. It must be hard trying to keep carpets clean. All comes with being in such of a beautiful part of the country.
Donna HewittI couldn't come to your pub as my daughter is allergic to dog hair .... Also I dont think id enjoy any food in there with a load of dogs in the same room .... I am a dog lover but I just don't think it's right .
Michael Mc DonaldMy friends guide dog moults like hell he can't obviously see to clean it up but he likes his independence he stays many places with his work that is dog friendly I'll tell him to keep away from the tallest pub in the u.k
Nick FenlonSorry, behind you 100% on this, it's a Public house, but nevertheless, it's a house, I doubt very much that mess would be left in the dog's owners house for someone else to clean up, and I am sure they are responsible to clean up dog poo behind them, so why not this? Very disrespectful and slovenly. I am sure the staff would've obliged with providing them with a brush to clean it up with. It isn't a post about hairy dogs, as all dogs are welcome, its a post about cleaning up your mess, and the mess of the animals that you are responsible for.

Ian James HopkinsAll I can say to the be-moaners Cheers I would be your worst nightmare as I love pubs I love people I love courtesy and respect for others so if you don't like a pub rules then you can go somewhere else as pubs are a dying breed as it is and one person and four legged kind not turning up because they are not happy about a pubs rules would not be missed by me that's for sure as the remaining people are the ones who believe and respect other guests Cheers 🍻

Jak Jaxthat's better put than the last post you did. and you are correct in that it is awful to see. I would have to clean it up If it was my dog or bring a blanket in.I also have asthma and for some reason can be allergic to other dogs.

Carla Crawford WalesWhat a miserable venue and miserable page, buy a rubber broom and shift the hair yourself, would take 5 minutes, instead of making such a song and dance about it. Bet you never moan when dog owners are spending money.

Maxine DaleI have a dog and would never be so disrespectful to leave a room in this mess. Those who are trying to justify this mess are shameful!!!

Sandra ThompsonIf I took my dog somewhere and it cast hair like that I would clean it up before leaving - how about a common sense rule - If you make a mess clean it up!

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!
