Main Street, Long Preston
North Yorkshire BD23 4PH



Located on the A65 between Skipton and Settle, this original 17th-century coaching inn is situated in the attractive village of Long Preston in the Yorkshire Dales. It overlooks the village green with its very own maypole where dancing was traditionally performed each May Day, a local custom continued to this day. The Inn is an excellent base for exploring everything the area has to offer including the awesome beauty of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the stunning Forest of Bowland.

The Maypole reopened in 2022 with new owners and management and today offers a well stocked bar and relaxing lounge, separate dining room with beamed ceiling and cosy log burner, and contemporary en-suite accommodation with every facility. In addition there is a small patio to the rear, the perfect spot to relax with a drink during the warmer months.

Start the day with a choice of tasty breakfast options including a full English breakfast. Food is served throughout the day from 12 noon and the menus offer appetising Starters, favourite Mains (including meat, poultry, fish & seafood, pies, lasagne), succulent Steaks, Vegetarian dishes, various Sides and delicious Cold Platters & Cheeses selection. A Specials Board is also available daily. To round off, why not indulge in an irresistible homemade pudding or tempting dessert – there is something for everyone to enjoy. The menus also cater for those with special dietary needs, including gluten free, and use colour coded allergen icons to clearly identify the contents of each food item. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are happy to answer any questions regarding food preparation and ingredients and advise on menu choice.

The Maypole also caters for private functions and offers Special Events and Activity Breaks throughout the year.
