Pubs & Restaurants
There are many public houses around Scafell Pike, each one giving great views of the area. Food ranges from gourmet to simplistic depending on your taste. Hikers who take the more demanding routes, such as the steep ascent alongside the Esk River, a large lunch isn’t recommended as it can cause lethargy and sluggishness. Those taking gentler routes can, of course, enjoy a feast, as long as the climb is slow with plenty of stops.
A lot of calories are burned climbing Scafell Pike so a delicious meal is an apt reward for completing the challenge!
