My boyfriend and I stumbled across this Inn when we were travelling from Ullswater down to Windermere - it's in a perfect location on the top of a hill as you can see for miles! It was a beautiful Summer's day when we stopped there, and it was such a lovely afternoon to sit outside and enjoy a cold drink... More

Came after a busy day walking, excellent food and the all the staff behind the bar were incredible made us feel like part of their group. The food is good quality for food and the two young waitresses were brilliant even though it was busy.

Went today for a family meal and the price was what you'd expect for food in the lakes. I had Cumberland sausage and mash which was more or less £10, it was a good sized portion and it tasted very nice, can't fault it. I can't understand why people have complained about the service, the food arrived in a very... More

I love the location of this inn just a shame that it was ruined by the absolutely terrible customer service delivered by one of the bar maids, every question we asked she had a very unhelpful attitude on her. How anyone can stand by and allow their customers to be treated like this is beyond me, the managers need to... More

Nice little pub, just what you need after a walk etc. It was so so busy as it was really wet. The drinks and food were ok but very expensive for what they were. Which is expected in a high tourist area. That's not what bothered me. It was one of the female staff members. I have never been served... More

Nestling at the very top of the Kirkstone Pass in the English Lake District is the historic Kirkstone Pass Inn. Advertised as ‘the Inn with altitude’ at 1500 feet above sea level and over 500 years trading as a Inn. It is well worth a stop to gaze over the magnificent views. We decided to have a drink and lunch.... More

Lovely pub, always great to pop in to after walking. Just a shame one of the female staff was miserable. It doesn't cost to say please and thank you, it was like an effort to serve us. we weren't having food on this occasion but you'd think on busy summer days food would be served after 3pm.
