Royal HotelMain Street
Imposing hotel overlooking the Market Place owned by Bowland Brewery, this lovingly restored Georgian town-house hotel provides luxury hospitality and quality beers. The bar is light and airy with the bygone feel of Bath Spa in a Jane Austen novel. Comfortable sitting rooms and a cosy snug complete the picture. Little wonder that Kirkby Lonsdale is favoured by film crews for period surroundings and the town hosts an annual Victorian Festival. The two house beers are from Bowland Brewery with two changing beers from Westmorland, Lancashire and Yorkshire. An excellent base for exploring the quirky town and the surrounding countryside of the Lake District, Forest of Bowland and Yorkshire Dales. The fields, fells and valleys are home to hundreds of specialist food producers, organic farms, micro-breweries and even the odd spring water bottler.
