My sister and I had a lovely stay at the Pooley Bridge Inn. As soon as you walk in the door there is a welcoming feel to place. All the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms comfortable and clean and the food delicious! Be warned, the portion of sticky toffee pudding is huge! There is a nice relaxed atmosphere... More

We stayed here this week on the £140 deal for two nights B&B and evening meal. The brewery are obviously spending money outside but not inside. Our room was very out dated but the bed was comfy, linen clean as were the towels and the shower was powerful. It's obv dog friendly and the staff were friendly and hardworking especially... More

On arrival Room was clean and tidy with balcony facing the village which was... More

We chose this popular Inn as I have stayed here many times as a child and decided to revisit during our week off work. We arrived at the Inn on 3rd March and were greeted on arrival whilst also being allowed to check in early which was great. Room was nice and warm and relatively tidy although TV would not... More

We took two family rooms - plenty of space, comfortable beds, good en-suites and a great nights sleep. Excellent and friendly service both as a hotel and as a pub in the evening - wonderful food, atmosphere and beer. Our second visit and certainly not our last. Thoroughly recommended!

We arrived for a meal last night to celebrate our Dad's retirement while we were staying in Pooley Bridge. The pub was nice, the food was lovely but what really makes this place stand out is the staff. They couldn't do enough for you, they were attentive, they took time to have a chat with you - they really were... More

After looking for a dog friendly pub on a Sunday evening we were lucky enough to stumble accross the pooley bridge inn. 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
