Ravensworth Arms

  • Description

    Pub Website. "...The area encompassing the village and The Ravensworth Arms is a unique medieval landscape known as Lamesley Pastures, a rural conservation area, and lovely trails along the River Team through wildflower meadows begin from the pub car park.This historic pub restaurant takes its name from nearby Ravensworth Castle, home to the distinguished Liddell family for over 350 years. Alice Liddell was the inspiration for Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and Carroll, whose real name was Charles Dodgson, stayed at The Ravensworth Arms when visiting the family. He may have written parts of this enduringly popular children's book at the inn.The region is often referred to as Cookson Country, where celebrated novelist Catherine Cookson set so many of her novels. Cookson's mother Kate Fawcett worked as a barmaid at The Ravensworth Arms...."
