I paid for my parents to stay at the pooley bridge inn and they absolutely loved it. They stayed with there dog and were overjoyed with the fact he could go in the bar rather than leaving him in the room, he also loved sticking his head through the bars on the balcony in the room. The meal they had... More

Passed the half way mark on a 22 mile mountain bike route and this place was the perfect solution for a later lunch. Highly recommend the sandwiches and especially the Cumbrian ham!! Lattes great too :-)). Service was excellent and super fast! Xxxx

This is a pub, so expect a bit of noise until closing time, especially Fri/Sat night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good and it's a popular spot. Good location for walking and exploring the lakes. Room was tidy and clean.

We didn't stay, just went for dinner on a whim after walking round the lake. Food was gorgeous, beautifully cooked, good value, perfect really. Staff warm and friendly, keen and smart. Someone can really cook here.
