Reeth

Reeth

Reeth Village, Yorkshire Dales National Park,  Swaledale, North Yorkshire, North of England: Reeth, a busy village in Swaledale, seems to have a high % of buildings that cater for 'refreshments' to the 'tourist' on foot or travelling in the car. The Ivy Cottage Tea Room serves good tea, coffee and food cafe style etc.

The 'small' Overton House Cafe offer simple wholesome refreshment and a friendly welcome.  Reeth is good starting point for several walks in Swaledale and there is parking in the centre of the village near the cafe.

The Reeth Bakery Cafe offers much in the way of freshly baked organic produce for a 'takeaway' and there is a small cafe inside the shop. They make good bread from organic flour.
The Black Bull Hotel offers good bar meals and snacks and is in a row of sturdy houses. The Black Bull Hotel is the oldest surviving Inn dating from 1680. Note that the lower left title of the pub is upside down!
The Kings Arms Hotel, another handsome building dating back to 1734 (2nd oldest pub?), also offers good bar meals. Both these two pubs are just along from the Reeth Community Orchard Garden project which is worth a visit. We like the wooden sculptures of animals in particular.
The Buck Hotel is a family run business that desires to supply you with 'good Yorkshire food'. It is an 18th century house that once was a coaching inn.
