Well, it could be worse.

Guests celebrating new year at the highest pub in England had a longer than expected stay, after heavy snow left them stranded for three days.

About 30 people arrived at the Tan Hill Inn in North Yorkshire on New Year's Eve to welcome in 2010.

But the wintry weather conditions meant the residents were snowed in for a further two nights.
Let's hope they didn't run out of Old Peculier.


  1. On the face of it every drinkers dream, but in reality I suspect not quite so much fun.

  2. I heard this on the radio and they didn't sound like they were suffering too much!!

  3. According to what I read, they had drunk it dry of both Theakstons and Black Sheep. That's dedication for you:)
