In 1275, a manor house was built for Yeoman farmers, the Worrall family.
Towards the 1560s, the house was rebuilt to accommodate their growing family.
Not until 1771 did the building become an Inn, when the Worrall's leased the property to John Morton.
The Inn got its name from an Olde English word meaning the meeting of water, quite approriate as nowadays it overlooks the Strines Reservoir.
Today, the Inn offers something a little different to your typical country pub. Each room contains many articles and artefacts concerning the bygone days of the Strines and its surrounding areas, including many other pieces of interest.
In the height of summer, the Inn attracts hundreds of visitors on a daily basis . The glorious sunshine and stunning views perfectly compliment the excellent food and drink available.
For those with children, there is an enclosed play area outside where youngsters are free to run around to their heart's content.
Outside also is an area for peacocks, geese and chickens who never tire of seeing friendly faces!
None of the Inn's charm is lost during the winter months however, as its three open fires create a warm and comfortable atmosphere to help forget about the dreary weather.
Regardless of the time of year, the Strines Inn makes for a wonderful day out.
Food & Drink
Over the years we have gained and maintained a well-deserved reputation for good quality, traditional, English home made food, much of which is made on the premises and cooked to order.
The menu has continuously evolved to accommodate what have become firm favourites. The pies are particularly popular and visitors never fail to be impressed as to how giant the giant Yorkshire puddings actually are! There is a generous choice of vegetarian dishes and for children, we have a special menu with the same good quality food in smaller portions to promote healthy eating.
At the bar is a specials board that is updated daily providing the latest choices of soups, pies, fresh fish and desserts, as well as the current one-off dishes.
The Inn boasts award-winning coffee that can be bought pre-packed to take home. There is a good selection of wines and spirits available and there are always guest ales to sample.
