The Three Greyhounds

Villages without a pub were prone to fall apart while communities with just one had the highest sense of wellbeing, happiness and social cohesion.

Please note that The Three Greyhounds is temporarily closed,
pending some refurbishment by the new proprietors.


In spite of the small size of the village, Great Asby is lucky enough to have retained its pub,  The Three Greyhounds Inn.
It is located in the centre of the village, just across the beck from St Peter’s Church.  The Three Greyhounds is a traditional, unspoilt country pub.  The building dates from 1707 and has been a public house since at least the early 1800’s.

It is divided into three areas: the bar, a dining area, and games room.  Its beamed ceiling, stone flagged floor and original iron range fireplace (a draw for many on cold winter evenings) make for a welcoming atmosphere for locals and visitors alike.  Indeed we very much welcome visiting cyclists and walkers, with or without their (well behaved) dogs.

Food and Drink

As a free house, amongst our full range of drinks, we always have at least one real ale on hand pump, and pride ourselves on maintaining its quality.

Lunch (12 to 2pm) serving:
Soup, Sandwiches, Cakes (incl. gluten-free), Tray-bakes and Scones.  Costa Coffe, Tea and Hot Chocolate also available.
Dinner (6pm to 8pm) serving traditional pub meals.

Games and Quizzes

Traditional pub games are on offer, with participation and sociability our principal objective.

We have a pool table, dart board (and pub darts team), and can offer dominoes for those who prefer to sit and relax.

We also hold regular pub quizzes in aid of charity on the third Friday of the month.  A “squad” of local residents provides a team to take part in a local pub quiz league.  We don’t always win, but we do enjoy ourselves.

Walkers & Cyclists


We welcome walkers, be they local strollers or serious ramblers.
We are on the northern most section  of the Dales High Way, roughly midway between Newbiggin-on-Lune and Appleby-in-Westmorland.


We are also a favourite for those cycling in the Westmorland dales.
We are on the Lakes & Dales Loop, the Pennine Cycleway -North Pennines  (aka  “National Route 68”); and a stone’s throw off Wiggo’s Way, an increasingly popular part of the C2C Cycle Route designed to commemorate Sir Bradley Wiggins’ victory in the 2013 Tour of Britain.
