The Stag Inn, which stands in the heart of Dufton village overlooking the green, was built in 1703 as an inn with solid oak beams.
This is a classic country pub – and very ‘walker friendly’ – with a large cast-iron range warming the main bar, an open fireplace in the smaller lounge and a comfortable dining room to the rear serving a wide choice of meals.
The Inn itself is a traditional pub which dates back to the turn of the 18th century, it is a Free House serving real ale with a reputation for good food, you can choose from the pub menu or a la carte, it also has the benefit of a beer garden.
“We are delighted to be part of The Outdoor Guide and had a great time with the crew and Julia Bradbury when they were filming for her new ITV walking series, Best Walks With A View.”
TOG Says …
“The fire and location of this pub is perfect after a long day of walking in the Pennines.”
The Stag is traditional in every sense with solid oak beams, exposed stonework and a range of cask-conditioned ales on offer. We are recognised by CAMRA and listed in the Good Beer Guide with a fine choice of ales includes the Black Sheep, Boddingtons Bitter, Castle Eden and Flowers IPA.
On a warm summers evening, take a relaxing drink in the beer garden as the sun slowly sets against the backdrop of the Pennine Hills.
When it’s cold outside you can be sure of a crackling fire to welcome you into the cosy atmosphere of the bar ….
