A 3 night stay was good albeit for a few niggles that could be put right quite easily. Firstly I have to say the room we had overlooking the Estuary was a real treat with great Estuary and Lakeland Peaks, it was very clean as one would expect. However there was not enough drawer space in the room for clothes,... More

We called at the pub on two nights for drinks and to use the free wifi. Also, there is a tv above the bar showing sport and the husband wanted to see the footie scores. The pub looks a bit unloved, but a bit of thought to layout and a good scrub could sort it out. The hotel reception looks... More

We are always disappointed on your recent visit to the Pub. The pub has had over £320,000 spent on it over the past 2 years, including a new bar area in October, so am confused about not being loved. and a deep clean is under taken recently as well as its daily clean. We are sorry we did not deliver... More

We arrived on a wet Friday night tired after 5 hours on the motorway. The bar area was nice and warm, a sharp contrast to the temperature in our room. We went back down to the bar for a drink, shame that there's no soft seating in the room. Bar staff were friendly. Tired we decided to go to our... More

The good: views from our room on the top floor were outstanding, especially the sunsets. The breakfasts were good and the restaurant part of the pub was full of character. The staff were always polite and friendly. The room too was clean and tidy. Saturday live music was good too, but spoiled by local? men dancing around like idiots. Average:... More

We arrived after dark so had no idea where we were. Met with a friendly and helpful greeting, more than I deserved owing to boxing up the booking! We awoke after a good night to see a panoramic view gradually unfold as it got light. The river estuary and the hills of the southern Lake District across the water. Very... More
