Thanks to Roy & Gema. We both enjoyed our 3 nights here and would recommend it to anyone. Liked the food, hospitality and accommodation. Great ambience of a 500 year old pub. Great views locally and for miles around the surrounding area. David & Julie

I visited the Kirkstone Pass inn with two friends in early October and had a really nice time both in the local area and in the inn itself.A really relaxing spot and no problems with the resident ghosts infact the only spirits we encountered we're purchased from the bar !.Thank you to everyone at the inn for looking after us...
