Welcome To

The Brown Cow Inn

Since 1500 AD, The Brown Cow Inn of Dalton-in-Furness has stood here at the foot of the High Bluff on which also stand the only two buildings in Dalton that are older; the church and the castle. History is evidenced throughout the beautiful and atmospheric Brown Cow Inn, a pub and restaurant that has so much charm and personality.

At the Brown Cow Inn in Dalton we pride ourselves on achieving the rare balancing act of keeping a good cellar and serving delicious home cooked food. We boast a selection of guest ales as well as the usual offerings and have an all weather, all season heated outside seating area. We also offer accommodation in the form of a self contained apartment and cottage with family size rooms and their own ample amenities. The apartment and cottage, like The Brown Cow Inn, are warm, welcoming and comfortable.
