Dozens of customers were stuck for days in England’s highest pub after the storm

London Dozens of customers who stopped for a drink at a pub at Britain’s highest altitude got a longer stay than they expected, after a snowstorm ravaged the building.

61 people woke up on Monday after their third night at the Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales, 270 miles (435 kilometres) north of London. They haven’t been able to leave since Friday, when a late fall storm brought snow and high winds down power cables and closed roads.

Located at 1,732 feet (528 metres) above sea level, the pub is used to being secluded due to bad weather.

Manager Nicola Townsend said the staff organized movies, a quiz evening, and karaoke for the stranded guests. They have also been hosted by Oasis Cover band, Noasis, who have also been stuck in the bar since their Friday night party.

Townsend said the guests were “really in good spirits.”

She said, “They made a great friendship…like a big family is the best way I can describe it.” One lady said, ‘I don’t want to leave.’

Townsend said she hopes people can go home later Monday once the roads are cleared.
