Things to Do Near Hipping Hall Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery
If you love enjoying the very best in food and drink during a weekend away, then a stay at Hipping Hall is the perfect thing to choose. Nestling in the quaint alleys of Kirkby Lonsdale is Royal Barn, home to the Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery, makers of an array of top beers; including tipples such as Radical, Ruskin’s, Loosehead, Singletrack and Institutional.
Established in 2009, Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery now produces a range of beers that are served throughout across the UK. It all began with ‘Ruskin’s’, named after Turner’s famous painting ‘Ruskin’s View’, created in 1816, a fitting homage in every sense to this beautiful scene. Ever since, the brewery has sought local inspiration for the names of their beers.
After a bracing walk alongside the River Lune taking in Devil’s Bridge and the steep climb up the Radical Steps to Ruskin’s View, what could be better than a refreshing pint in pleasant surroundings, before returning to Hipping Hall and enjoying dinner crafted by head chef Oli Martin?
