We are very pleased to be working together with four beautiful rural pubs in the Lake District and Chiemgau:

The Old Crown in Hesket Newmarket is a wonderful example of a local community pub, with a unique recent history. The Old Crown is /owned by a co-operative of more than one hundred local people and other supporters, and serves prize winning real ales, all brewed by the Hesket Newmarket Brewery which stands at the rear of the pub.

The Black Swan is situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the village of Ravenstonedale. Guests can enjoy excellent home cooked food and real ales. The Black Swan recently opened ‘The Village Store’ 20 years after the last shop in the village closed, a project supported by the Prince of Wales ‘Pub is the Hub’ initiative.

Gasthaus Schellenberg is located in Bergen, Chiemgau, with wonderful views over the surrounding mountains, traditional food, local musicians, a small farm around the back of the building and parking spaces for horses. The pub celebrated its 100th birthday this year.

Gasthof Zur Post (a.k.a Beim John) can be found in the small town of Obing in Chiemgau. The pub has been welcoming both travellers and locals for at least 580 years, including the likes of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Today the pub is central to village life, hosting a variety of local and international events on the small stage upstairs, or outside in the biergarten.
