We popped into this pub for a quick drink. The pub is gorgeous just what you would expect from a Lake District pub. The food which passed us looked devious so we will definatley be coming back to visit. The staff here are all very friendly and welcomed you into the pub. We wanted to stay longer. Lovely pub in...

Popped in for lunch whilst waiting for our time slot to go to Hill Top House. We were given a warm ,friendly welcome & the owner was very amusing with the children. Food was excellent & with good sized portions. Will have to return again & hopefully stay.

Back in "Tan" once again, a small room, but cosy and with everything you could want or need. A few changes on the menu since our... More

We visited Tower Bank Arms whilst staying in the village. The food was fabulous and the staff so very friendly. I'll definitely be returning! The menu was varied, the barman had an enthusiastic knowledge on the ales on sale. This place is a real gem in the lakes.

Loved staying here through a trip around England up to Scotland. The owner was lovely and the rooms very comfortable. The fire and lounge area was a perfect place to read a book and have a warm drink. Recommend for stay here!

The food was top notch, great beers, very relaxed, great staff. A lovely open fire keeps it very cosy. On our final night, we stayed a little late and the... More

The Tower Bank Arms looked a good spot for a few days break: in The Lake District (always a good start), good food and beer, and dog-friendly. It delivered everything we expected - and lots more. It's set in a great part of The Lakes, and as we went just before Easter, it was still quiet. Of course, if you're... More
