Rural pub/restaurant seemingly in the middle of nowhere, that is home to the Barngates Brewery.

The bar area is nicely appointed with plenty of hops on the ceiling. There is a separate dining area off to the left. A few locals were sat at the bar, whilst diners were also having a pre-meal drink in the bar area. A dog was barking at every single person entering, apart from myself.

The 4 Barngates ales on offer were Cat Nap, Goodhew's Dry Stout, Cracker & Brathay Gold. My stout was enjoyable.

The beers from the on-site brewery are superb without doubt, but apart from that it is a poncey restaurant with prices to match. Very disappointing, unless that is what you are looking for.
