The Three Greyhounds Inn, Great Asby CA16 6EX
In spite of the small size of the village, Great Asby is lucky enough to have retained its pub: The Three Greyhounds Inn.
Located in the centre of the village, just across the beck from St Peter’s Church, it is a traditional, unspoilt country pub.
The building dates from 1707 and has been a public house since at least the early 1800’s.
Its beamed ceiling, stone flagged floor and original iron range fireplace 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.
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.
Opening hours (from 16 April)
We will begin to serve takeaway food and beer garden drinks:
Monday to Thursday – Closed all day.
Friday – Open 16:00 to 20:30
Saturday – Open all day, 12:00 to 20:30.
Sunday – Open all day, 12:00 to 20:00.
Traditional pub games are on offer, with participation and sociability our principal objective. We have a pool table, dart board, and can offer dominoes for those who prefer to sit and relax.
We also hold regular Fun Quizzes in aid of charity on the last Thursday of the month.
We also have regular live music sessions, often on a Sunday evening in the form of our ‘Band Sundays’.
Walkers are welcome, 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.
Cyclists – 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.
