Harrogate district inn named in top 10 UK country pubs for a winter weekend

The Guardian has named The Timble Inn on a list of the top ten country pubs to visit in the UK for a winter weekend.

Harrogate district inn named in top 10 UK country pubs for a winter weekend A popular country pub in the Harrogate district has been named one of the best in the UK for a winter weekend. The Timble Inn, which is in the village of Timble in the Harrogate district, has been included in The Guardian's top 10 'best country pubs for a winter weekend.' The list has been compiled by The Guardian's Annabelle Thorpe, who looked at various "characterful" pubs in the UK. Also included were The Chequers Inn in Derbyshire, The Duncombe Arms in Staffordshire and Joiners Arms in Northumberland. Speaking about The Timble Inn, Annabelle wrote:

"Escape to the tranquillity of the Washburn Valley – one of the least famous of the Yorkshire Dales – and settle in at the Timble, an 18th-century coaching inn that makes the perfect winter retreat. "The nine bedrooms ooze cocoon-like comfort, with pocket-sprung beds, Egyptian linens, fluffy robes and a well-stocked tea tray, and the restaurant serves modern British dishes – pickled mackerel with seaweed sourdough, roast loin of venison with pine and chestnut crumble – alongside a standalone vegan menu. "The Nidderdale AONB is on the Timble’s doorstep, with walks for everyone from serious hikers to Sunday afternoon strollers, and Harrogate is just nine miles away."
