The Queen’s Head, Finghall
This local village pub is just up the hill after The Friar’s Head, Akebar. Make a left turn off the main A684 and go up the hill to Finghall. Many guests write in our cottage guest review book that they are happy with this pub. We find it quite “traditional”. Open for lunch and dinner.

The Friar’s Head, Akebar Park
Friendly and the closest local to Patrick Brompton. It had a makeover to send it into the twenty first century in the nicest way. When we last went pre-lockdown, it had leather sofas, sheepskin and white washed walls along with a revamped menu. However, we haven’t visited since the new takeover so please let us know what you think? They have a large conservatory dining room and a west wing. It’s cosy in winter too with the real fire, and ales.
They always try to fit you in, but it’s getting so popular we advise you to book, especially for Sunday lunch. They did do a great Yorkshire pudding here… To drive there, stay on the A684 as you leave Patrick Brompton and you will see the pub about 1.5 miles on the left. Open for lunch and dinner.
