Great deal via travel bird of 2 nights b&b plus round of golf for £99. Unfortunately no golf due to back problems but absolute fantastic deal and great opportunity to sample this rural rustic haven! The pub is set with an amazing cumbrian backdrop at every angle and is a lovely example of an English escape into Eden. However, had... More

Stayed here for two nights purchased through Amazon Local. The food and accommodation were very good and would definitely stay here again. Reading some of the previous comments I wondered what to expect. Yes it is a little dated but then again it is a country inn not a chic city hotel. On the minus side the walls were far... More

Lovely peaceful location, feels like the middle of nowhere but only 5 miles from Kirkby Stephen. Nice accommodation, very friendly & helpful staff plus good food. Would go back & happy to recommend to others.

We booked the Fat Lamb via an Amazon local deal. We weren't expecting it to be as good as was when we arrived, but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was an ample size with an en-suite bathroom. The first thing that struck us was how warm the room and the whole pub were, which was excellent considering it was... More

We have just stayed at the Fat Lamb for two days booked via Amazon, this was worth every penny. The pub is Olde Worlde with a lovely open fire, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was very large with a full en suite bathroom, clean and very warm. The breakfast was excellent. We ate in the bar... More

stayed for two nights for our anniversary and we could not have been made more welcome! Staff were great and particular thanks to Phil. Weather was terrible but the food and accommodation were excellent so will certainly return! Thanks again to Phil.

The Fat Lamb is in an idyllic location. We booked a 2 night Amazon Local deal and paid £10 extra to bring the dog. We were allocated a good size room, nicely decorated, on ground floor so it was easy to nip out with the dog last thing. Bed was really comfy, nice clean sheets. Bathroom was a good size... More

We have just returned from a lovely 3 day (2 nights) break at The Fat Lamb. The food and accommodation were wonderful. A quiet location near the Howgill Fells, good for visits into the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District (both within 30 minutes drive).

No management communication between staff and themselves, has spoilt our week end as we were paying for friends for a present and they then sent a bill to them, the day after we got home. We were also told on arrival that we would have a table reserved for an Irish night they were having and when we arrived no... More
