Initially found the Kings Head on the way back from Windermere, called in hoping for lunch and received a really warm welcome and an excellent lunch. We were again in the Lake District for the weekend 11th to 13th April and actually booked lunch at the Kings Head. Even though we were twenty minutes late we again received a warm... More

It was easy to find, being a short distance from the main road. The hotel occupies a great location next to a stream,... More

Yes the soup here is so good. Then the main course, it just gets better. How I wish we had this wonderful eating place near us at home! Very friendly staff. No long waiting times for our food. Perfect.

En route to Durham, we stopped here for Sunday lunch. Really excellent quality food (none of this pressure-cooked rubbish) served by really helpful staff in a beautifully restored country inn. This is well worth a detour.

Family meal, as always amazing food, friendly staff. I would never go any where else. Its generally a lovely place, and well-known to my family. Can't comment on the rooms but from word of mouth they are stunning.
