‘The Certificate of Excellence award is given to outstanding hospitality businesses that have received praise and recognition in reviews by TripAdvisor travellers, and . Winners of the award range from one-room bed & breakfasts to 6000-room hotels, from bakeries to Michelin star restaurants and hidden attractions to world-renowned parks and museums.’

Described recently by Octavia Lillywhite in the Sunday Mirror’s Hotel of the Week column as ‘the best kind of country pub – a characterful 17th century inn which has been beautifully refurbished.’ the Punch Bowl has a growing reputation as a foodie destination with great views, sightseeing and ‘cosy boutique rooms’ to boot.

Reviews of The Punch Bowl on Tripadvisor have described the inn as

‘outstanding accommodation, the location is perfect, service was excellent. The food, both evening meal and breakfast were simply amazing,’

‘Marvellous place with very lovely and accommodating staff. The food was super and chef is very funny and ultra helpful.’

The Punch Bowl Inn’s owner, Charles Cody says,

‘We’re delighted with this seal of approval from Tripadvisor – in recent years the site has become very powerful in the hospitality industry which has its pros and cons – for example we have experienced customers who have threatened to give us a bad review if we didn’t give them discounts or upgrades. While we never give in to that sort of blackmail, we hope that this accolade will dissuade those kinds of reviewers in future!’

Since December 2006 The Punch Bowl Inn has being building its reputation for exceptional local food served in a warm and friendly atmosphere. It has become the focal point for the residents of Low Row and the surrounding dales.

The Inn also offers high quality accommodation at affordable prices,
and is a welcome place to stay for a large number of walkers and visitors to the area.
