Just a short note to say the new owners have just agreed a commission with Neil HANSON Author of “ The Inn at The Top “ and many more, to write the definitive history of The World Famous Tan Hill Inn. This will be a high- quality hard back coffee table book with wonderful photographs beautifully published that would make a perfect gift for Christmas. We will be issuing more details shortly. However, if YOU have any photographs Old or New, stories to share, that your happy to have published please get in touch. email@example.com Neil already has a very impressive collection, but part of the excitement will be to see what else “ is out there ....”. Looking forward to this journey. ! 📚 ... See MoreSee Less
I have some great photos from the 60s of the inn how do I been in touch with Neil ?
I have read the book "Inn at the Top" and it was such a good read - delightful and funny and the history of Tan Hill Inn will be a good read too plus photos.
Did you ever manage to find any photos of the filming of Robinhood Prince of Thieves think it was late eighties, will never forget the sight of Robin Hood and his men coming across the moor on their horses, pub was full of the film makers, so unreal the vibe was brill xx

Hi Everyone. - meet Charlotte. We have had a series of “ tricky “ trip advisors recently and we are working hard to continue to bring our customers the very best service possible at the remarkable but challenging Tan Hill Inn. We will keep focussed! Charlotte got an unfavourable mention recently ....quote ... “ Charlotte I think her name wasn’t much better - couldn’t even crack a smile “ So here is a lovely picture. She came to us at 17 years of age - her first ever job. She is 18 now and worked so hard in the kitchen - sometime now being so responsible, trustworthy & skilled she often looks after the kitchen at Tan Hill Single handedly with a KP. She is one of our greatest successes and we are very proud of what she has a achieved at such a young age. 👍 Most of us who remember being 18 could not simply do what she does here. So we have gently reminded her that hospitality is about smiling when she appears the other side of the bar. Meantime - if you have ever had good service from the wonderful team of Charlotte and the equally remarkable Hannah, please do say a few words on Trip Advise ( both of them as when negative they also double it up on both accounts ) to bring some balance to the critique. Also it really will help Charlotte smile more naturally and she deserves to.😊. ... See MoreSee Less
How lucky Charlotte is to have such supportive employers. What a great way to engender loyalty and build a great team! 👍
I know Charlotte, have known her since she was at school...however, not seen her for a while. She is a lovely girl. So polite and friendly. She always seemed to lack in confidence but if you make the effort she always used to reward you with a smile. Lovely girl!!! Didn't know she worked at Tan hill, so may have to come up and say Hi! Loving the hair Charlotte!!! X
Honestly some people just can’t find it within them to simply support local business’s! Beautiful lady! 💖
When we stayed we spoke twice in the morning at breakfast ca t fault her very well manored and well spoken a great asset to Tan Hill....
Also not a lot of people know how hard and challenging working in a busy Pub is. They think it's just pulling a pint or a meal being served to them. Bless the young lass 18 and has that sort of responsibility already Credit to herself and yourselves. 😊😊
When we came to stay we spoke to Charlotte and she was very chatty and very nice as were all the staff, think you must of had a miserable visitor that as we couldn't fault her.... can't wait for are next stay...x
She’s was absolutely lovely when we were there. Very friendly and even had a word with a gentleman who had one two many and was behaving inappropriately making my friend feel uncomfortable. She displayed excellent hospitality and customer service skills. 👍🏼
Charlotte, you are obviously an incredibly wonderful asset to this AMAZING establishment.
Keep up the great work you are doing and well done to you...
Sadly, there are some very unkind people in this world who hide behind a keyboard ... take absolutely no notice at all..if anything...feel sorry for them and the unhappy life they must lead. Keep up the great work ... hardworkers always go far xx
I love the meals I've had Charlotte. Keep up the good work xx
Charlotte cooked our meals , they were fabulous, we had a great stay , working in a stressful job ,sometimes you forgot to smile , although on our night she was lovely
When we came a stayed Charlotte was only 17 and throughout the night of fun and festivities this beautiful lovely young lady joined us in our chatting and laughing night of fun I can say hand on heart she is wonderful and all us humans can only do what we can do to our best abilities... Charlotte you are amazing and you keeping doing what you are doing ❤
Omg some people 😡
We thought Charlotte was a lovely young lady chatted with us and always willing to help us.
We were up for a weeks stay in February and all the staff were very friendly and helpful, we will be back Karen & Gary 😀
What a fabulous young lady Charlotte is, she used to live in our village, I remember her always happy and polite, was great to see her again dong so well...........
Well done Charlotte! As an ex head chef, I know that what you've managed to do is remarkable - I hired a team in my second head chef position that were all skate kids and everyone said I was making a mistake. Those lads and lasses didn't let me down - and several of them could hold my night off for me, with a KP by the time they were Charlotte's age - young people do have it in them to do incredible things when they are believed in, supported - and challenged! Well done Tan Hill Inn for helping Charlotte learn and show her skills, and trusting in her. Including your awesome response to negative trip advisor feedback! This is a tough one, as it can make or break a place - and your response is thoughtful and takes responsibility, whilst also praising and supporting your young superstar's successes. We had a great visit last summer, and we'll definitely be coming again! 👏👏👏
Some people are just so negative. We’re human, maybe Charlotte had something on her mind and her smile slipped! She’s not a robot. I’ve been to the pub many times, she’s been nothing but pleasant every time and the food is amazing. I’ve put a review on trip advisor x
We're is this I want to visit, sounds a lovely place,
A lovely girl. We've stopped with you're twice now and both time's Charlotte has made us feel welcome and sat and had a drink with us .❤❤ .
Always have admiration for any chef, I would love to have been one but recon the stress would have got to me. All power to you and keep growing 🙏🏻
We were there for 2 nights last weekend and the kitchen was so busy but our food was incredible. Keep up the good work 👍🏼
Charlotte is a loverly young lady as is all the staff at Tan Hill we were there yesterday and Charlotte was very busy feeding all the customers.Some people always have to have a moan.Keep up the good work Charlotte. We will be back soon
Charlotte you are extremely talented and a credit to Tan Hill .....There obviously extremely proud of you , so you go girl , your amazing . Can I just say this really really upset me , why do people have to make unnecessary remarks ........ Do they realise the impact it can have on someone . Always be nice it costs nothing xx
23 years in the industry has taught me all I need to know about trip advisor. Good luck to all at the Tan Inn. It’s a brilliant boozer. Xx
Charlotte is a lovely girl, I work at the school she attended from yr 7-yr11, such a polite, friendly girl. 😀
Big up Charlotte! Woop woop!
She’s always been nice and friendly with us whenever we’ve been, and she obviously works very hard.
Nothing too much trouble even when fussy boy child wants chicken dippers and Yorkshire pudding.
Great dinners. Smiles like winners.
We were there for the beer fest last September and all the food we had over the 4 days we spent with you was lovely, couldn't fault it... Darren was the first person we encounted he checked us into the car park (We were camping) and was so friendly we felt like we had known him for years.... Keep up the good work everyone, you're all a credit to this fabulous Inn... x
We never tire of sunsets at the beautiful Inn. This one taken by our super- talented Charlotte. She spends a lot of time in the kitchen so it’s fantastic when she can escape and take these beautiful pictures 💕🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
Just wanted to share with you all the fact that we got a negative 1 star ⭐️ review from a guy who had cycled up and said that “ there was snow ploughs and tractors left randomly around the site “ 😬🙈. “ The car park was very rough “. “ There was someone complaining that there was no fruit in their scone “ ( it was a cheese scone 🙈) I mean....... shows you the variety of issues we get at Britain’s Highest. We honestly try and listen and learn ........it’s not easy sometimes honestly. Onwards and upwards.👍🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧 ... See MoreSee Less
Chris Chilver yes and we have a military guy who is going to ask “ a friend “ to get it moving again before winte
I was there Sunday on me bike I had the Sunday dinner and loved it 😄
Well I think you are all blooming wonderful. ❤️❤️
Spent 2 nights there this weekend, can’t wait to get back again, it was incredible!
What nonsense, my first visit Sunday just gone!!
beautiful location supreme views and lovely staff. Ps .that’s a good snow plower 😉 for winter seasons
Beautiful place beautiful food
What more do you need
Keep up the good work
It takes a special person to run this place
Tan hill is a amazing place. Been there a few times and each time it gets better. I was there for the opening of the barn. You can’t please all the people all the time, but do keep going and improving. Tractors and snowploughs add to the character and remoteness of this incredible location. Be back up for a pint soon.
You can'nt please everyone all the time , but most of the people i now that have been love it there , my hsband and i was there this weekend had a fab time. Xx
I’d love to see the big Zetor 9145 with its Duncan cab and snowplough.
I love the place old quirky pub in middle off nowhere fantastic views great beer and entertainment. We had food was a long wait but your staff kept us up to date on times but when it arrived it lovely did we complain absolutely not . We weren't going anywhere so as long as we got fed we were happy ha. Keep up the good work tan hill. See you soon
Where do I go to give positive review of my enjoyed visiting?
You can’t please everyone all the time! And some people you can’t please anytime 😂👍👌Is a great place! Love it to bits 😍
God if my hubby saw that tractor, seeing It would make his day & id never get him away from it.
You can't please all of the people all of the time. We had a fab weekend as do most visitors ... there will always be a grumpy fit. You're doing a great job. Xx
Love your honesty and sharing the reviews! Some people are just t*•+s
Keep up the great service. Proud to use your facilities and enjoy the experience.
I spent two nights there great food loverly staff great walks can not wait to return good beer too
Maybe he was grumpy because of the cycle ride. We love Tan Hill Inn, but I’m afraid we take the easy route by car! Last time, a hare ran alongside us on our journey back down. Beautiful. X
I once had a wonderful shoulder massage, following a lovely lunch, from a man from New Zealand, who was either working or staying there ! Hope he comes back.....
We stayed a couple of weeks ago and, yes, there was a snow plough parked there. It was right outside our bedroom window. What a place to keep a snow plough!!! That is unless it gets snowy there in the winter. It's up on the hills Muppet!!! Of course it gets bloody snowy!!!! And one young lady complained that there was no fruit or yoghurts for breakfast. This is Tan Hill woman!!!! Get a bloody good full English down you!!!! They'll be complaining about the soot on the ceiling next or Hamish's manner towards his customers. As I say, it's Tan Hill not a boutique hotel!! We loved it. See you again one day. 🤪🤪🤪🤪
First time there last Friday! Had a lovely meal with my other half, Symonds on draught! 😋 Good breakfast next morning. Will be back! Bringing the motorbike next time!
Onwards and upwards we loved our stay in your wonderful pub !!!!
Being "Tan Hilled" is a privilege. Whats the point of your wonderful pub if everything is perfect. It just wouldn't be right. Its lack of pretence is what makes it so fantastic. Let them moan. It just means they dont get the ethos of the Inn therefore their view is unimportant
Omg you can't please some people how rude they don't no a work if art when they see one that zetor a snow plough is lovely we come up to see tan hill but mainly the zetor my partner loves them x
Is there anything wrong with the tractor or does it need just a jump start?
