Had a really pleasant lunch - was very good value for money and excellent taste - also a varied menu - the service was very good and the landlord very pleasant indeed. It was the first time I have visited this restaurant but will definately eat there again. Surrondings were very clean and tidy.

Stayed for 2 nights and had a lovely time. Staff very friendly. The inn is beautiful and the bedrooms are very comfortable and CLEAN. We really enjoyed our meal and found the location ideal for exploring the Lakes and the Solway Coast. We'll be back!
