Sadly, the Kings Head at Gunnerside and the Kings Head at Kettlewell have both recently closed, but are 'For Sale' as pubs. Ghyllfoot Tearooms at Gunnerside offers food and drink, whilst there are two other pubs to choose from at Kettlewell. Hopefully, these two great pubs will re-open soon.

Rumour has it that some Villagers in Kettlewell are negotiating with Administrators and it may open again in due course.
It looks almost derelict at the moment and the place has been emptied.... gutted.....lots of work needed to restore it to anywhere near a Dales pub that you would want to visit.

Meanwhile, the Blue Bell in Kettlewell maintains good standards in Ale and Food....even Live Music one night this week which went down well !
Curry night on a Wednesday...£9.95 for an excellent Curry and a Pint of your choice !

Just noted on Trip Advisor that the White Lion at Cray has closed! This was from an update end of August. Visited the pub many times and this is a sad loss.
Friend and I are starting the Inns Way on wed (18th). Will post news on return

Very sad indeed. When I first started to research and write this book back in 1991, it was unthinkable that pubs would close down in the Yorkshire Dales; pubs that have been an integral part of the history and heritage of the Dales for hundreds of years. We've got to use them or lose them! At the moment, the White Lion at Cray, Kings Head at Gunnerside and Kings Head at Kettlewell are currently closed, but will hopefully re-open soon.
