    This piece is titled 10 of Britain’s best pubs with rooms in spectacular walking country, so it's perhaps unsurprising that a bunch of peripatetic beer tourists haven't crossed many of the thresholds. Having said which, I've been to two: the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel many times, and the Keld Lodge Hotel. The latter used to be a youth hostel, and I stayed there in September 2000 when I was walking the Pennine Way. The nearest pub was a little further down the valley at Muker (which Wittenden has visited once or twice!), and I called in there for a pint or two (Nimmos XXXX 4.4% £1.90 according to my notes made at the time) before making my way to the hostel. After it closed as a hostel I was passing that way in 2016 after cycling to Tan Hill, so called in for a half of Black Sheep Bitter, which I described as being in "very good nick". But it's definitely a hotel, with not much pub-like about it.

    The "Toughest Pub" category is a little alarming.

    Just https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/25432/ for me.

    https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/27408/ and https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/39461/ don't look tough to me - perhaps someone's having a laff. The Ramsgate looks a little grim though. The Carlisle is listed under the most unusual category too.

    Walked in there (and out again) last year , only had Hobgoblin on so didn't stay for a drink, hence no review. It's a bikers pub but didn't appear particularly tough or unusual.

    Isn't that the definition of a biker's pub? You do mean bikers as in chopped hogs, ZZ Top beards and denim, not Shimano, Lycra and unseemly bulges?

    The former, they may exude a certain roughness but it's not always the case, respect their ways they respect you, (generally). A prime example here.
