After a long wet walk we ordered the roast dinner which was just what the doctor ordered and as a ex chef I knew the dangers of ordering a roast at 6:30pm on a Sunday!!! However the meal... More

We have just returned from a one night stay here. From the friendly welcome as we checked in till the fond farewells as we left, we couldn't fault this place. We had a family room(room 1) with a balcony. The room was spotless with plenty of fluffy towels and a very well stocked tea and coffee tray. We ate our... More

We were staying in watermillock so the journey down the road to Pooley Bridge was a short one. We chose the Pooley Bridge Inn for our evening meal on its looks compared to the other pubs on offer in the village. It was a large pub and staff were friendly. Meal choices were good and prices were on average about... More

Lovely, homely pub. Stopped for two nights and found this the perfect base to explore the lakes. Lovely staff added to the friendly feel and the breakfasts were amazing. Rooms basic but welcoming and always warm. Planning our next visit in the summer.

Had a great first stay here. Rooms are basic but have everything you need. Staff are very welcoming & the dog was made welcome too & we were able to take him into the eating area with us. The food was excellent, especially the cooked breakfast.

Just back from 2nd visit and can't wait to go again. Visited with our 4 year old daughter and Staffy pup Dave. Everything from rooms to location is superb, food is top class, especially porridge. Staff are lovely and you are assured of a warm welcome and excellent service. Weather was horrendous but still had a fantastic time.
