A lovely shower, WiFi and space for bags in the room. There were loads more rooms upstairs than anticipated. The hourly church bells through the night were annoying, but they thoughtfully provided earplugs by each bed. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit salad and very tasty scrambled eggs.

A real find, the Crown and Mitre is located in a picturesque town across the road from a stone church whose bells chime the hours. The room was clean and simple, with deliciously comfortable beds. The pub downstairs was convivial, and the meal was fresh and healthy with lots of good veg. The walk out of Bampton to Shap is... More

Being the fifth breakfast on our c2c walk made the mistake of just asking for bacon and tomato got a miserly half a grilled tomato portions at the previous evening meal had not been generous either.

It is never good when a guest does not enjoy their stay with us, we do take these kind of comments seriously. I must point out though, that as a small pub, it is not and never has been our responsibility to collect customers doing the C2C. It is a service that we don't and never have offered. There is...

Stayed here on night 5 of C to C walk. Rooms clean and linen and towels spotless. My dinner of carrot and coriander soup and steak and ale pie were superb. I complimented the chef on her cooking. Best meal yet.

Arrived at the Crown & Mitre after a very hard day on the Coast to Coast. We were made very welcome and shown the table where we would be eating later. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We went down for an excellent meal and then retired for a very good nights sleep. Breakfast was excellent. All in all,... More

Our stay at the Crown and Mitre and the end of a hard day - our last day in the Lakes on the C2C. The welcome we received along with the lovely comfortable room and fantastic bath were just what we needed. We were a little worried when we saw the earplugs provided for us on our bedside tables -... More

We were a party of 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a toddler when we visited the Crown & Mitre at Bampton for an evening meal at 6pm on a Saturday. We were not disappointed! The food was great and the chef was very accommodating (also tripling up as waiter and dreyman) as all the kids wanted something slightly different to... More

We spent a night at the Crown & Mitre while doing the Coast to Coast and overall we had a nice experience there. Our room was spacious, with nice views of the church across the road. The bathroom was on the small side, but at least the shower was sufficiently large. The bed was comfortable and after the pub closed... More

Lovely local inn. Very friendly staff and excellent food. Their champagne at £40 a bottle was delicious and did not produce any 'after' effects! View from room 2 was delightful as it overlooked the church. We'd certainly pick this place to stay the next time we're in the vicinity.

Stayed here for one night during our c2c hike. Indifferent welcome and room (7) plus shower room very small. Another couple were given a key to our room and walked in as we were getting changed. Our room overlooked a seating area at the back of the pub and was quite noisey in the early evening. Food just ok but... More
