I had the venison which was delicious and my partner had the confit duck with rosti which was lovely. Really yummy vegetables served with it including cauliflower cheese. Portions we're very generous too. Had... More

We called in by chance on a circular walk from Bellingham and we had a fantastic Sunday lunch for 5. It was very reasonably priced and the food was excellent. The chocolate fudge cake was possibly the best I've ever had and the service was brilliant. Lovely decor and nice ambience. All the staff were also very friendly. Can't recommend... More

We had an overnight stay after attending a party in the village. Our room was comfortable and the public areas very pleasant. The menu looked really interesting though on this occasion we were just there for a delicious traditional breakfast. The staff were most welcoming.
