The Greyhound Hotel in Shap is a famous Westmorland hostelry dating back to 1680.

With panoramic views of the Lake District fells, it is the perfect stopping off point for walkers, especially those on Wainwright's famous Coast to Coast walk.

It has a large bar with a wide selection of wines and real ales to enjoy in comfortable surroundings.

There are also lots of great walks nearby for you to appreciate our lovely countryside.

The Greyhound Hotel has an excellent reputation for food and drink throughout Cumbria.

All of our dishes are freshly prepared to your order, with all of our meat and game coming from local suppliers. This enables us to have one of the lowest ‘food miles’ menus without compromising on quality and supporting our local producers.

There is also a chef’s specials board for evening meals which changes on a daily basis, all reasonably priced.
