Re: Pen-Y-Ghent Cafe

Late August 2021 update - the Cafe is closed for the foreseeable future (Tourist Information in Settle did give me details and I'd be surprised if it re-opens any time soon (if at all) under the current ownership)

Pen-Y-Ghent Cafe

Does anyone know the current status of the PYG Cafe in Horton?

Did it open last summer, is it open at all this winter?

Would be a real shame to see it lost.
