Just got back from our 5th stay at the pooley bridge inn. Was so dissapointed this time. Drinks were dear £6.40 for a glass of coke and a beer. The menu was rubbish. The rooms were lovely as always but tv kept going fuzzy so couldnt watch it all the time of our stay. The shower trickled out water! And... More

Called in last night 18 July for a pint, saw the food and liked the look of the fish and chips and have to say I have never had better anywhere. That and the great service from the staff turned having a beer into having a great evening. Thanks to all at the Pooley bridge Inn.

Our last night in Pooley Bridge we reserved a meal. The meal was the best we had had all week and we tried a new restaurant every night. The Burgers,Pie and goulash were amazing and the service from a very young team was excellent.I told the supervisor I was going to do this so she will know who I am.... More

Myself and my family where lucky enough to find a room on such short notice as we stopped by for lunch on our way home from Scotland. It was such a beautiful day so we decided to stop over. The staff where very accommodating and allowed us to take a room including our 3 year old daughter and the dog.... More

While we did not stay in the inn itself and cannot comment on the accommodations, we greatly enjoyed our experience in the bar. The menu included a number of pies (it was Friday pie night we learned) and featured a few options not present at the other local establishments. We had the pleasure of trying their sticky toffee pudding which... More

A very pleasant hotel with most accomodating staff. We'd booked for two nights but due to the Scottish ferry strike had to cancel the second night and head north earlier. Hotel was most understanding and gave us no hassle at all, and didn't charge any extra. If only all hotels acted like this!

Stayed in this hotel as part of a hillwalking trip. Our room was clean and had a small balcony. However, other than this I felt that the service was poor. Dinner was average and took a long time to arrive. We were wanting a reasonably early breakfast but were told that we could not have it before 8.00a.m. because that... More

We stayed in a guest house in Pooley bridge called elms house which I have to say was lovely. But the day we arrived we was quite peckish so went to get something to eat. We was told that the local pubs served food and that it was good . So we looked around a bit as you do and... More

I cannot thank Heather and her wonderful team enough for the support and perfect day they provided for my daughter and her now husbands wedding. Planning a wedding at Gretna green from Devon is hard enough, but then looking for a venue for the reception that you have not been to is positively scary ! Heather was just a complete... More

Last minute night away as weather was so good. Found this place very good with nice room with balcony. To be fair bathroom very small but having balcony makes up for that . Staff all very friendly and could not fault the breakfast excellent. So overall would recommend this inn.
