The Punch Bowl Inn is located centrally in the peaceful, picturesque and unspoilt village of Marton-cum-Grafton.
Dating back to the 16th century it still retains its old world charm and cosy character. The inn displays a wealth of beams & characterful open fires.
The Inn has a wonderful traditional bar, stocked with local beers, hand pulled ales and a considered wine list. The bar also accommodates informal dining, with large wooden tables and roaring open fires. The five downstairs areas within the pub provide distinctive rooms each with their own charms.
Located on the first floor, the private dining room and coffee lounge are accessed by the beautiful fifties swirling staircase, with our trademark glass chandelier taking centre stage. They provide two separate, sumptuous spaces; the coffee loft up in amongst the beams of the oldest part of the building and the adjacent dining room, ideal for drinks and lunch or dinner. These decadent rooms combine rich tartans and luscious velvets to offer the ideal private space for friends and family.
Outside, the rear courtyard is a fantastic space for outside eating and drinking and for summer barbeques.

Think of a roadhouse and a 16th century North Yorkshire inn is probably not the first image that springs to mind.
In their heyday, roadhouses were the destination for drivers who were experiencing the joys of the open road for the first time as car ownership became more widespread during the 1950s and 1960s. The Punch Bowl’s proximity to the Great North Road, which then had no speed restrictions, and its then ownership by a motoring enthusiast, Eddie Shine, who created a motor-themed pub, earned it a spot on Pathe News in 1958. Even then it was a target destination for classic cars, with a 1910 Renault featured in the newsreel. The 1950s bar featured a host of car badges and even a carpet covered in pictures of cars and counted rally and racing drivers amongst its regular visitors.
