Open for Carry Out Food

It has been a tough week for everyone, and it is with sad hearts that we must close the Horse and Farrier and The Sally. This is a heart breaking decision, but it is one that we have had to make by government instruction.

Our upmost priority is to protect our loyal guests, the Horse and Farrier and Sally teams, and our families at home. Unfortunately, we are cancelling all bookings until 1st June 2020.

To be clear: we have had no suspected cases of Coronavirus, either from our guests or our team. We have been rigorously enforcing all the government guidelines indeed going above and beyond. We are devastated to have to shut a business which has run 24/7 for 365 days a year for as long as anyone can remember!

However – we will still supply food on a carry out basis - so down but not out

Our Take Away Menu

We will be in touch regarding room bookings and we are happy to work with you to reschedule

This is a huge ordeal for all of us, but with a level-head, we all will get through it. And we can't wait to welcome you back when we do.

Keep Safe!

Get Away From The Crowds

Whilst we deal with the uncertainty of coronavirus, I wanted to update you on the precautions we are taking to ensure that our restaurants, bars and guest rooms remain a safe space for our guests and employees to enjoy over the coming months.

As always in our five star kitchen, our restaurants, our bars and our guest rooms we maintain the highest possible level of hygiene.

Our team has been fully briefed with current government requirements and are undertaking extreme levels of health and safety procedures to ensure that guests and other staff members are safe.

As you would expect all of our tables are appropriately cleaned when customers leave, all high touch areas are cleaned regularly with appropriate antiviral solutions including menus taps door handles and bedroom equipment etc and of course all crockery cutlery and glassware is washed in high temperature commercial equipment. We have been kitted out with extra hand sanitiser so please feel free to make use of this during your time with us.

We want you to be able to get away from the crush of the bigger towns and enjoy the wonderful countryside around Threlkeld and to feel you can stay and eat with us in a safe environment.
