Punch Bowl Inn Information


The Eighteenth Century Punchbowl Inn is a well-furnished establishment, which in past times was a farm and orchard. The beams at the Punchbowl have splits in which coins are once forced 'for luck'. Local tradition states that a wish will be granted for each of the coins so treated? We are a Restaurant, Pub and Bed & Breakfast located in the picture postcard village of Askham. We offer Twin and Double Rooms all En-suite and would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to escape the mundane pressures and stress of everyday life and enjoy a wonderful break with us in this picturesque region. Dominated by its spacious and traditional bar with open fires and original timber ceiling we offer fresh, local, home-cooked food coupled with a fine selection of real ales, wines, spirits and whiskys. A large portion of our menu caters for Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Vegetarians, which is served alongside our constantly changing specials board offering a more upmarket gourmet option. We also serve a delicious Sunday Roast - Every Week!
