Reasons for trip

The Fountaine is an old inn in the Yorkshire dales, thoughtfully modernised to offer a choice of real ales, good food and barn conversion accommodation. We called for lunch.

Linton in Craven is a picture postcard village just across the River Wharfe from Grassinton. The Fountaine overlooks the village green.

On our visit the well-stocked bar offered five real ales, all in good condition – two blonde beers from local micro-breweries and three traditional bitters from regional breweries. Staff were welcoming, helpful and talked knowledgeably about the beers. There was an extensive lunch menu. I chose a thick Yorkshire gammon and eggs and my wife selected steak tray pie. Both dishes were delicious; the meat had obviously come from an excellent traditional butcher. The bill was very reasonable.

Afterwards we enjoyed a short walk to the nearby Fountaine’s Hospital, 18th century almshouses built in the style of Vanburgh and a 14th century packhorse bridge over Linton Beck.
