Came in for New Years day lunch as a party of 4 adults and 3 children under the age of 6.

Friendly pub, ideally located in the southern lakes. Rooms have all the necessary refinements. Quality pub grub, good selection of real ales. Attentive staff. Excellent access just off motorway, reachable even when the weather poor. We will definitely return.

Enjoyed a night away during christmas/new year, the room was very clean with a large comfortable bed and huge roll top bath. Meal was superb in the warm cosy dining room with roaring fire. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. Many thanks for a lovely pleasant friendly stay.

Lovely room, staff friendly and our evening meal was a delight. The Inn was busy (always a good sign), there were roaring log fires and the food was excellent. I'd recommend this Inn to anyone (and have done so already!)

The breakfast was just right and the evening meal we had there on the Friday night was also just what was required in the very cosy setting of the dining room. We... More
