The Greyhound Hotel

              Famous Westmoreland Hostelry since 1680

The Greyhound Hotel in Shap is a famous Westmorland hostelry dating back to 1680. Based just 5 minutes from junction 39 of the M6, with panoramic views of the Lake District fells, it is the perfect stopping off point for travellers and walkers alike, especially those on Wainwright's famous Coast to Coast walk.  The hotel has 11 en-suite rooms (6 standard, 5 deluxe), two restaurants, a large bar with an open log fire and a wide selection of wines and real ales to enjoy in lovely surroundings.

Wine & Dine

The Greyhound has an excellent reputation for food and drink throughout Cumbria.  All of our dishes are freshly prepared to your order, with all of our meat coming from local suppliers. This enables us to have one of the lowest 'food miles' menus without compromising on quality and supporting our local producers.  There is also a chef's specials board for evening meals which changes on a daily basis, all reasonably priced. The pub also has 8 traditional hand-pulled ales, a selection of lagers and spirits and a wide selection of carefully chosen wines to compliment your meal or just to enjoy in the bar. 

We can now be found in Camra good beer guide 2013.  Click here for more information.

Coast to Coast Walk

The Greyhound Hotel is ideally situated for those on Wainwright's
Coast to Coast walk, being at the southern end of Shap village. The hotel has been welcoming tired and weary walkers for many years where a roaring fire, a pint of ale or two and a comfortable bed is appreciated! In the morning, the hotel's sumptuous Cumbrian
breakfast gives you the start you need for another day's walking.
