Perfectly functional boozer - more of the locals one of the three in town.

Decent Black Sheep on.

Very good darts team - frequently scoring in triple figures!

A large, white building - or is it two buildings? Certainly the hotel's smart dining room appears to occupy a different one, and the public bar is a world of its own, and all the better for it. There's a stone flagged floor and an open fire. We liked the atmosphere in here, and the friendly barman was doing a good job. Like the Kings Arms, I would have said there were probably one or two beers too many on the bar, but either they keep it better here or we just got lucky, as the two we tried were in good condition. There were three Theakstons beers, Old Peculier, Lightfoot and Best, plus Black Sheep Bitter and Thwaites Wainwright. Of Reeth's three pubs, this would be my choice for a prolonged visit if the opportunity arose.

Early lunchtime on a damp but mild October Saturday. Some elderly bikers were discussing the Scott Trials, being held today.We sat by the rather too warm fire in the bar and ate ham ‘n’ eggs.
A room to the right was laid up for dining, but sadly unoccupied.The pub seems to ramble away from the front, with some sort of games room to the rear.
