Stayed at the Fat Lamb last weekend for our anniversary. Our daughter booked an evening meal for us from America with no trouble at all. Food was delicious, breakfast fantastic. Can't fault our stay. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Glad you enjoyed the food, sincere apologies for the fault with the shower when you stayed. The building is very old and some of the floors are a little creaky, we have had one attempt to improve the situation which has made a bit of a difference and we will look at this and further soundproofing options again when the...

This cosy hotel has a very traditional and warm atmosphere.There's a local feel to it and everybody is treated like a member of the family. It's peacefully quiet and tranquil.The rooms aren't too big, but again, that helps the ambiance. It has beautiful scenery and sunsets. The location is perfectly situated between the Yorkshire dales and the beautiful Lake District,... More

We live locally and have used the Fat Lamb on a number of occasions. We have had visitors from the South Coast and they were amazed at the food - helping sizes, choice, value, prices, service and presentation. Would happily take anyone back and in fact, with some of our friends and relatives, have done just that. Well done Fat... More

My husband and I stayed on a groupon, bed, breakfast & evening meal. It did not disappoint! The bedroom was a ground floor wheelchair accessible room with wet room. The decoration was a little tired but the room was clean and comfortable. The evening meal was absolutely delicious on both nights as were the breakfasts. The nature reserve looked very... More
