The Stone House Inn, Thruscross reopens!
The Stone House Inn is situated in the beautiful Washburn Valley. The location of the pub offers stunning panoramic views of the surrounding area. With its real wood fires and log burning stove, the pub is warm, friendly and welcoming. The whole pub is non-smoking for the benefit of its employees and customers. Why not enjoy a cup of Fair Trade tea or coffee with homemade cakes in the tearoom, or a traditional ale with hot homemade food in the bar area. The pub has level access to the toilets, dining room and bar and there is ample parking.
The Stone House was originally an 18th century built farm until in 1868 Jesse Peel (whose brother John ran the nearby Gate Inn near to the reservoir) was granted a licence and ran the pub for forty five years.
The pub is spartan inside but has been cleaned, re-decorated and some necessary minor alterations made. It still retains its austere moorland character, situated as it is 900 feet above sea level. A wonderful place to be sat outside (if it's warm enough that is!) when the curlews are calling and gliding in Springtime. Black Sheep Bitter & Golden Sheep are available on draught.
