This was my second trip to the Crown and Mitre. The alteration in the restaurant was very welcome. It is much roomier than it was and very comfortable altogether. It's a fine place and right on the trail.

Stayed for two evenings and the hosts were wonderful,the food and place is delightful. I recommend this establishment above all others in the lake district,a memorable experience. You must try the Venison burger and a glass of the house wine,delicious.

This was our second visit. We stayed one night last summer and fell in love with it so jumped at the chance to stay again on our way back from Scotland. The rooms are large, warm and luxurious. Feather duvets, crisp white bed linen, fluffy white towels and enormous free standing bath. The pub is full of character with draft... More

The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. The rooms are a bit small but were comfortable. We had dinner at the Inn and it was good--a variety of choices. The breakfast was plentiful. There was good variety of local beers and ales on tap. The sound of the church bells chiming from... More

On arrival we stood at the bar for 5 minutes without being acknowledged by the staff because she was having till problems and seemed very fraught. Eventually we got our room key and found a small but comfortable twin room. However, all the problems emanated from the kitchen and the service. I had the pie which was huge and tasty... More

What a fabulous hotel and definitely one of the best on the C2C route! Arrived at 4.30 in the sunshine after a horrendous day of walking through the rain and gales from Patterdale. Pub was extremely busy (lots of events in Shap and a local wedding!) so we did look rather scruffy but not once were we looked down on.... More

Delighted to have found this traditional walkers inn - peaceful in the tiny village of Bampton. Very warm welcome from all staff. We have stayed in rooms 1 and 2 which are spacious and overlook the front of the inn. I was initially worried that the church clock opposite would keep me awake - chimes every 15 mins and is...

Accomodationg a vegan and meat eater and a dog lover - Crown and Mitre really shone out. Great food, chilled about our small dog and he even got nice walk behind the church. Would definitely go here again. Recommended by the Ing Inn in Shap where we were staying.

You were most welcome! Well behaved dogs are always allowed in the bar area, but not in the dinning room. And we do ask owners to keep their dogs the lead just in case. Glad you enjoyed your visit, and thank Ing Inn for recommending us. Jane PS Our chef can nearly always accommodate Vegans in ace anyone else is... More

For the weary cyclist on a charity ride the crown and mitre have been amazing, they were accommodating for meals as we were running (cycling) late and kind and helpful. We can't thank everyone enough for their support. Our evening meal was excellent, I would love to come again
