No. (Unfortunately the pub next door to is now closed and there is nowhere in the village to have an evening meal. On booking you will be given the options of eat before you get here, self cater using the bunkhouse kitchen, or there is a catering service which can deliver meals, but they need to know in advance. The last option is to pre-order a taxi to go to the nearest pub that serves meals which is only 3 miles away. I always like to know in your decision in advance.)
