3 Dining Areas & An Extensive Bar And Food To Die For!

Our Long Bar is fully stocked to meet the needs of the most discerning of customers. A wide range of Cask Ales and Lagers, Wines, Spirits and Bottled Drinks are available. Our local regular customers mingle with visitors and resident guests in a warm and friendly atmosphere. To find a real Pub atmosphere within an Hotel is rare. We think it is essential !

Our comprehensive and appetising Menu is available all day and every day. Should you only need a Light Bite, an attractive range of items is available from 12 noon until 5 p.m.

Our a-la-carte Menu is impressive, and is a major show-piece of the Hotel. From Fresh Mussels through to a relishing Beef and Ale Pie or a Lamb Shank, all tastes ( and capacities ! ) are catered for. Oh, and don’t forget, we have a wide vegetarian range on offer.

In the Bowes Incline you will be eating quality Restaurant- standard food in an Hotel setting. In addition, because of the spacious nature of our dining area with seating for over 100 guests, you do not need to book.

Boe Violet
The addition of violets creates a stylish gin with a light, delicate taste and beautiful colour and aroma.

Gordon’s Pink
Gordon’s Pink gin balances the refreshing taste of Gordon’s with the natural sweetness of strawberry and raspberry with the tang of redcurrant.

Williams Pink Grapefruit
Floral and zesty, a wave of tartness hits your tongue first, followed by a juicy kick of grapefruit peel. Subtle hints of juniper round out the flavour.

Whitley Neil Original
Two carefully selected signature botanicals from Africa – the Cape Gooseberry and the fruit of the Baobab tree – combine for a distinctively bold taste.

Whitley Neil Rhubarb & Ginger
The essence of rhubarb adds a tart crisp edge to the smooth English Gin base, whilst the ginger extract warms the palate for a full bodied finish.

Sipsmith Lemon Drizzle
This recipe takes a classic London Dry backbone and layers on sweet, sun-dried lemon peels.

Made with infusions of cucumber and rose petals for a wonderfully refreshing Gin with a delightful floral aroma.

Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla
Smooth bitter sweet orange to mid palate. Gin character comes in mid-palate and follows through in the aftertaste.

Edinburgh Gin’s Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur
Tangy, spring rhubarb is macerated with ginger and lemon zest before being infused with Edinburgh Gin to create a rose-hued tipple. Its intoxicating warmth is evocative of cosy nights by the fire and hearty winter puddings.

Edinburgh Gin’s Plum & Vanilla Liqueur
This velvety liqueur blends juicy plums with luxurious Madagascan vanilla for a luscious, rich flavour. On the nose, aromas of ripe stone fruit and marzipan, whilst on the palate, rich sweetness balanced by a softly warming vanilla finish.

Edinburgh Gin’s Elderflower Liqueur
A sweet, aromatic, flavourful Scottish GinLiqueur produced by the Edinburgh Gin Company. This has a beautiful floral flavour from natural elderflower essences.

Edinburgh Gin’s Raspberry Liqueur
A fresh raspberry taste, a perfect Liqueur, wonderful with tonic, soda or lemonade, excellent in cocktails, with Champagne or simply over ice.

Fifty Pounds
Opens with juniper, followed by lemon, coriander and angelica. Hint of spice, with citrus blossoming in the middle. Dry, palate cleansing finish with a touch of heat.
