We stayed here for 1 night whilst doing C 2 C. It's about a mile off the path but well worth the diversion and avoids need to walk all the way from patterdale to shap. Bampton was off of our map but we managed to use a phone to navigate us in the right direction. Staff were very friendly, room... More

Lovely place to stay. Comfy beds, huge fluffy towels. Very pleasant helpful staff. Free toiletries, tea and coffee making faculties. In a very pretty village, opposite a church. Lovely views. Excellent food

Appalled by the ambience. Drunk customers who appeared to be locals. Poor and overpriced food. Un-attentive staff who only appeared to be interested in gossiping. Only visited on recommendation but will NOT be going back to this establishment.

We were mortified to read your review of our pub and apologise that we were unable to provide the service and quality you were led to expect. I can assure you that this is not normal for us and nearly all our customer feedback is very positive, particularly on the food and service to our customers. It would be a... More

Whilst been a little off the C2C track before Shap, the Crown and Mitre is well worth a stopover ( and you can rejoin the C2C route without retracing your steps or extra mileage). It's a lovely experience, nice bedrooms and excellent food served in a bar with friendly owners and staff. Terrific breakfast too. It's a hidden gem.

Only stayed one night, but that was enough to find out that the Crown and Mitre is excellent. Room at the front of the property was a good size, with comfortable bed. Bed linen crisp and fresh, towels huge and fluffy. Evening meal very good quality and reasonably priced. Too many beers on tap to try them all in one... More

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
