James and Leanne welcome you to Sawdon, home of The Anvil Inn!

In the pretty village of Sawdon on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, you will find The Anvil Inn at the heart of the village.

A bit off the beaten track, but then the best places usually are! A working forge from the early 1700s until 1985, this beautiful stone building retains much of the charm of days gone by. The soaring ceiling in the bar – the original blacksmith’s workshop - the furnace, the anvil, the bellows, all remain as they were.

Sit yourself down on the old pew and enjoy a pint of real ale or a glass of wine after a walk through the dale with its beautiful springtime rhododendrons, or relax in the pretty beer garden and enjoy a glorious Sawdon sunset.

We serve the finest food created with passion and care, the cream of Yorkshire beers, and a wine list with something to suit everyone.
