A warm, welcome awaits you at The Barbon Inn - a family run, traditional 17th century Coaching Inn. The Barbon Inn and Restaurant near Kirkby Lonsdale has been around since the 1650s and started life as a farmhouse. Situated in the peaceful and tranquil village of Barbon, this country inn offers old world elegance in its accommodation restaurant and pub. The Barbon serves traditional English cuisine with a modern twist. Specialty dishes using local produce with choices like Pan fried Duck breast, confit duck leg filo basket, steamed pak choi and courgette, plum and ginger puree;menu choices change with the seasons. The inn has an excellent wine list which has been a labour of love for one of the owners, and she will help you select from the connoisseurs list.
The Barbon Inn has 10 bedrooms one with a four-poster bed. It's located halfway between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park which makes it the perfect base for exploring both.
The Barbon Hill climb is held near by in the grounds of Barbon Manor, we have two race meets the first in June for formula one cars and the second in July for Classic cars, both are well attended with famous celebrities and Local celebrities alike.
This year we celebrated our tenth anniversary, we had a barbeque in our beer garden which has recently been altered and we can accommodate lots more people for al fresco dining. John Barnes and Jim Huddlestone laid a patio area in the garden by the entrance and we furnished it with rattan furniture which is comfortable and very popular.
We have created a warm and cosy atmosphere by opening up all the fires and burn logs in the cooler months this creates an atmosphere that only real log fires give. Logs Poem here.
