A brief history of Galphay and the Inn


Earliest recordings show that the village of Galphay was, in 1189, owned by Fountains Abbey and Galphay may translate into “gallows enclosure”.  Some old maps do indicate a gallows on a hill within the village.


We are very proud to be the “local” pub and receive great support from the villagers and surrounding area, all helping us create a very traditional village pub atmosphere. Sadly, in many rural villages this is not the case with so many closing in recent years.


The “local” theme is also reflected in our use of local suppliers who, where possible, use local produce. All our dishes are freshly prepared and therefore we ask for your patience while it is cooked.


Our hand pulled ales are always from Yorkshire and are complimented by a range of wines from around the world.


We do hope you enjoy your visit both to our pub and lovely village where we are surrounded by beautiful scenery.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of your visit, please let us know, we will strive to put it right. If you are happy tell your friends!!
