The Long Bar

As its name suggests, the Long Bar occupies a lengthy stretch of the manor. To its north sits the pretty Colonnade Courtyard, of which the bar offers delightful views through its large arched window. To its south are the impressive gardens; you can access the gardens via the Bar door.

The Long Bar is the place to sit for coffee, to enjoy a local ales or to take your pick from the extensive gin, whisky and cocktail list. We stock over 30 gin brands, including some fabulous Yorkshire ones, as well as having locally-brewed Little Valley Brewery Withens Pale Ale on tap.

Our bar remains closed for public service for the moment.
