Hi Guys, Thought I'de let you know about the cracking pub in Osmotherly called the Golden Lion. Osmotherly is about 1.5 miles off the C2C, but it's well worth the effort. For me, this pub offered the best food on the C2C by a long way. Top quality! The village was quaint, with it's unique stonework...and there was a huge campsite in the town...which was quite unexpected. Keep it in mind....

Is this an advertising. if not unless you are staying there why would anybody want to walk a further 1,5 miles on top of a allready long walk?

No M/ark, It's not advertising...! They deserve a positive comment...this place, in my opinion is how a pub/eatery should be run...and it's worth the extra 30 mins walk off the path!

if it is cheap and the food is good it may well be worth it, although I was backpacking and with the 25 kg weight so it would not have been my option, although I supose it depends on your time scale. But yes I guess it deserves a mention as some of the other place can lack good service and food. How much was a pint and was the food costly? I think only one pub desrves a mention and I am going to start a new tread on in as it was fantastic.

Osmotherly is a nice little detour - am attractive village and you can call in at the Mount Grace Priory on the way - a really atmospheric place to wander around for half an hour.

i am planning on skipping ingleby cross and going to osmotherly for a night stopover instead by continuing south on long ln to train line then cut across to road to mt grace priory, shouldnt add much distance to the day.

thanks for the heads up looking forward to seeing the town

Anyone who moans about a one and a hlf mile detour on a 190 mile should stay at home.. I stayed at Osmostherly Youth Hostel and had a pleasant evening working my way round the three pubs.

yes I agree with you lizard, so should all the light weights that stay in bed breakfast and have a packed lunch made for them, call themselves walkers?

What does where you sleep have to do with WALKING?

So, with your logic, should people who use tents and eat wild berries call themselves walkers....or campers?

Dan, you're right - that is probably the most direct route to Osmotherley, but if you've got the time (and energy) it's probably pleasanter to stay on the recognised route through Ingleby, past Arncliffe Hall, and then cut down SSW on the track marked through Arncliffe Wood.
