The Ha’Penny Tea Room

was originally established by Gerhard and Julie further down Skelton High Street in 2014 and in December 2019 it relocated to the Wharton Arms Hotel.


The Ha’Penny Tea Room serves homemade cakes, scones, light meals and a variety of hot and cold drinks Tuesday - Friday from 10:00 to 15:00. Under Julie's detailed hand the Ha’Penny Tea Room has built up a reputation for the Best Afternoon Tea’s in the area. 


“We have consistently met all requirements to achieve our 5 Star Food and Hygiene Rating from the local council” – Julie Pieterse.

The Ha’Penny Tearoom, with its relaxed vintage feel, also serves as a breakfast area for staying guests and is wheelchair friendly.

Skippers Pub

Skippers pub is where the locals meet (since 1878!) on a daily basis to discuss the weather and other important issues of the day. Some of the patrons have claimed to be regulars at Skippers for 54 years.


Skippers Pub has recently gone through a refurb whilst maintaining the old traditional pub feel where locals enjoy a variety of classic old and new beers (John Smith Magnet always available) and Lagers (Coors, Carling & Staropramen). We also stock a variety of ciders, spirits and superb Whiskeys. A new addition to Skippers Pub is our Gin section with a wide range to suit Gin lovers.

Skippers Pub has a pool table and a dart board for those that enjoy a game whilst enjoying their tipple. Pub basket meals are served on Friday evening 17:00 - 20:00 and Saturday & Sunday 14:00 - 20:00 in the bar and function room/lounge.



Outside Deck

An outside decking area was built in June 2020 which can seat 24 people. This is at the rear of the building in the car park area and is a sun trap in the summer months.
