Stickle Barn has changed hands quite a bit over the years, going from Sticklebarn Tavern to Sticklebarn Brews & Bakes run by the National Trust, and now owned and operated by Lanty Slee’s Liquor Company under the name Lanty Slee’s Langdale. Lanty Slee’s also operate out of Elterwater and specialise in making distilled liquor. They are named after the infamous Lanty Slee who provided the Lake District with his illicit liquor for a number of years, so of course, feature many of their fine distilled drinks at their Sticklebarn venue.
