We stayed here on the coast to coast and it had the friendliest staff so far on the whole trip, the bar man and chef were an entertainment duo. Best breakfast also of the trip so far, would love to come back and have a long weekend here to explore more of the area.

Woke up in York and just got the urge for a night away and a ride around the Lakes. Found their one remaining room on late rooms and headed off the long way round via Norhumberland. What a great find, friendly welcome, good ( ample portion) food and a real ale called Doris 90th that went down a treat. Room... More

My husband and I were out walking. Hungry - and heading for two places where we thought we knew there were two pubs. We discovered that one of them was in the process of being converted to something else, definitely not a pub, but the Crown and Mitre came up trumps. No lunches, we were told, but "Icould rustle up... More

From the moment we rang to order a late dinner due delays in setting off, all the staff of this superb establishment could not have been more helpful. Bar... excellent selection of beers. Food...chef turned out tasty and satisfying food (venison shank and chocolate and peanut pie two of the highlights). Rooms...clean, comfy and quiet( hardly heard the bells). All... More

Had a weekend here in march 2015. Room excellent, clean,spacious, was confused but grateful for earplugs supplied ... Thought they must have heard about my Hubby's snoring but realised it was probably for the church bells! Either that or the karaoke night they had! Only criticism was that it could be difficult to get to bar as people sitting on... More

Hi yes you are right earplugs are for the bells which can keep some of our guests awake if they are light sleepers. And you are right we are not as busy as Hawkshead, which I guess is good for a choice of places to eat ect .....but if you want to come to a very quiet place in the... More

After an operation,really needed a break from the 4 walls at home. This was perfect. Peace, rest, and oh the food was delicious and fresh and plentiful. Everyone was so caring and friendly. The pub/inn is also dog friendly. Our choc lab enjoyed the walks and lovely fresh air. He slept all day when we returned home. All in all... More

We ate here on the last evening of our stay in the lakes and wished we'd tried it earlier. The good was great and reasonably priced. Service was good as was the atmosphere. Would definitely visit again.

Myself, girlfriend and our German Shepherd dog Simba have just returned from a long weekend in the Lake District staying at the Crown and Mitre.

Spent two nights at the crown and mitre in Bampton Grange a lovely little village with a church post office and the inn. Great walks from the doorstep, Haweswater and Ullswater close by. Stayed in a standard double with em suite shower, the room was clean and cosy. There was plenty of room for the dogs crate. The bar area... More
