Food is lovely very tasty but very much restaurant portions and a tad over priced. Same for desserts very small portions and quite... More

We are lucky enough to live a relatively short distance of twelve or so miles from the King's Head. Yes, too far to be a "local" but close enough for the odd evening out. We had some family and friends up from the south and decided to book an evening meal at the above. Anyway enough of us and onto... More

Had lunch here on Sunday on way for an overnight stay in Windermere & the food here was the nicest we have had for a long time! Lovely staff, great atmosphere & very varied menu at a fair price - chunky chips lovely! :)

We were looking for somewhere cosy with a fire where we could have a romantic dinner for two (plus dog!) to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were looking for another pub/hotel which was signposted off the road but got lost trying to find it and came across this little gem and we booked a table straight away. When we went... More

Don't hesitate to use this little gem its just "PERFECT" Rooms very clean, fresh and warm, staff very friendly and helpful. Food fantastic and the open fires to die for. Returning again in March 2015 for a longer stay, already booked .

Staff were very helpful and the food for both the evening and breakfast was also very nice. Would stay here again. Much preferred it to the Black Swan further along the road... More

This is a lovely, lovely little place! The rooms are simple, elegant in a country contemporary way, and the beds are sooo comfortable. The bathrooms are freshly redone, and again, simple and elegant. The pub and restaurant serve wonderful food, and the atmosphere is thoroughly charming. The service was cheerful and very helpful. I would love to return to this... More

Through Sedbergh to this great backwater on the River Lune. The village has not just one but two excellent coaching inns - bluntly referred to today as pubs with rooms, how retrograde! Many walks can start here, probably the most popular being a 5 mile round walk to the viaduct. This is part of the now defunct Darlington to Cumbria... More

We ate here this evening with my Mum and her partner and had a great experience. This place has historically flooded numerous times and what an investment on cellar pumps and beautiful decor has done for it. The food was delicious and wine was lovely. I would class this as a gastro pub but even with good food and service... More
