Unfortunately, the popular Merry Harriers Pub and Restaurant suffered a serious fire this Christmas and is currently closed. Don’t worry though as there are several other great places to eat and drink in the area and if you don’t fancy walking transport can be arranged from the campsite.
The Half Moon Inn is just two miles or twenty minutes’ walk from the site entrance. This pub is located in the centre of Clayhidon Parish and offers a stunning view from their beer garden of the Culm Valley as it opens towards Hemyock. They offer a great selection of very high quality local food at affordable prices, and are as welcoming to the lone cyclist wanting a hot cup of tea as the large family group needing to feed the 5000. They are famous for their Sunday lunch. Friday evenings eat in or takeaway fish and chips are served between 5:30 and 7:00 p.m. phone your order through to avoid disappointment. Unfortunately the Half Moon is also closed Sunday nights and Mondays.
