The Marton Arms
Thornton in Lonsdale, Ingleton, LA6 3PB
A firm favourite with visitors and locals alike, The Marton Arms is everything a country inn should be: welcoming and family-friendly, with a delicious bill of home-cooked fare. Strong advocates of a field to fork ethos, the head chef takes pride in serving fresh food that has been reared sustainably on neighbouring farms, with 100 per cent local provenance. With a backdrop of Ingleborough, the traditional inn overlooks the charming St Oswald’s parish church as it nestles in the picturesque hamlet of Thornton in Lonsdale. You’ll find warm hospitality, comfortable accommodation and a relaxed atmosphere in this independent free house. Whether you’re planning to dine or just drop in for a quick tipple and a chat at the bar, there’s truly something for everyone in this traditional inn. Open all year round, the head chef and his team put together a tempting range of generously portioned dishes including traditional favourites and seasonal specialities. They’re serious about drink here too, boasting a superb selection of regular and guest hand-pulled cask ales, over 50 gins, and a good range of non-alcoholic options. Stay cosy by the fire in winter or dine al fresco in the beer garden in summer as you admire the Yorkshire Dales National Park scenery and contemplate the good things in life, like an unspoilt English inn.
