A long established pub in front of the highest waterfall around, countless landlords have made a good living charging punters to visit the Hardraw Force. Now a much extended pub with rooms the front part is a multi-room pub with a great deal of stone based charm and open fires. There are three rooms with serving faces off the servery, a large back room entered first from the car park , and a second to the front left with a serving hatch and a smaller but more enticing front taproom, other rooms on the right lurk off a central corridor leading from the front door. There’s only a T-bar in the rear room, five pulls in the front taproom with beers from Wensleydale, Dark Horse and Theakstons. A popular tourist spot in Wensleydale obviously it gets busy but it’s old world charm makes it worth a visit even if you don’t cough up for the falls. The toilets are a trek from the main rooms but not quite Wetherspoons standard.

Visited back in March, but just realised I didn't leave a review at the time. Five pumps in total, I had a Brewgooder Global Gathering Pale Ale which was some kind of charity based ale at £2 for half a pint. The chap behind the bar said they were due to have a charity event on to raise more money for the same cause but this had been cancelled due to COVID-19. I can't remember what other ales were on, but I am pretty sure Askrigg Ale was also available.

There was a real fire going, food was being served, there were picnic benches to the front, a piano inside, possibly a dart board too. A stone floor, bare stone walls, wooden beams, all in all a nice country pub. There are several rooms as you enter - the bar is to the left. The barman (or "Batman" according to the notes on my phone) was friendly.

This is a nice little walk up from Hawes on a nice day and definitely worth a look.

an exceptional pub unchanged since the reviews below. Cosy, multi roomed inn with the buzz of conversation and a real community atmosphere. reminiscent of days long gone by, this is a wonderful must visit pub. Decent Theakstons ales and food available. The waterfall walk behind is no longer owned by the pub and costs £2.50 but is also very much worthwhile.
