A Ramble through the Solar System at RIND near Settle

February 28 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Ingleborough covered in snow beneath a misty, dark, starry sky

Embark on a celestial journey at Rind, the new restaurant at The Courtyard Dairy, the ultimate destination for both gastronomic and astronomical delights.

Join Martin Lunn for an evening of cosmic exploration as you indulge in the finest British Raclette. Immerse yourself in the enchanting ambience as we unveil the mysteries of the solar system, blending the flavours of the universe with every savoury bite.

Martin will take us on a journey to explore our local star, the Sun, together with eight planets – some which were known to astronomers living thousands of years ago, and some that have been discovered in more recent times. We will learn about their moons, along with the dwarf planets, asteroids, comets and meteors that complete our solar system. If the weather is kind, we will go outside and see the magic of the stars ourselves, or observe them from the warmth and comfort of the restaurant itself.

Either way, the evening will be an astronomical experience that transcends the ordinary – where heavenly food meets celestial wonders.


Ticket Price: £20pp

Time: 5:30 – 9pm

Arrive 5.30 – 6pm

6pm – 7pm British Raclette & a Dark Skies family quiz!

7.15pm – 8.30pm Martin Lunn will talk us through the Solar System, including a short walk to view the night sky (weather permitting).


Ticket price includes a drink + British Ogleshield Raclette, served with new potatoes, British salami, pickles & a green salad. Vegetarian alternative to salami available. Any other drinks, sides or desserts will need to be paid for separately. Drinks included are house red/white wine, soft drinks, lager, or pale ale.

Please wrap up warm as, if we’re able to head outside, it’ll be chilly! Bring binoculars if you have them. Torches with red filters are preferable – any torches with white lights will need to be switched off when viewing the night sky.
