Birch Hall Inn

Beck Hole, GOATHLAND, YO22 5LE

Beck Hole is a tiny hamlet of nine cottages and a pub hidden in the steep Murk Esk Valley close to the North Yorkshire Moors (steam) Railway. This delightful little free house has just two tiny rooms separated by a sweet shop; no more than 30 people plus two small dogs have ever fitted inside with the door closed! The main bar offers well-kept local ales to sup beside an open fire in winter, including the pub's house ale, Beckwatter. The pub has been under the same ownership for over 30 years and the simple menu features the local butcher's pies, old-fashioned flatcakes filled with ham, cheese, corned beef or farmhouse pâté, and home-made scones and buttered beer cake. In warm weather, food and drink can be enjoyed in the large garden, which has countryside views. The local quoits team play on the village green on summer evenings.
