Had not been here for two years. What a pleasure to be back and chat to Mick who is such a considerate host. The quality of the food was as good as ever. Full marks to Mick and his team for remaining one of the hidden gems on the northern fringe of the Lakes. It will not be two years... More

This was our second stay at the Old Posting House and as an ex Band B proprietors our standards are set high. We have always had a very warm welcome here from all the staff and the owner goes out of his way to accomodate his guests. The rooms are spotless and have been refurbished to a very high standard....

Visited for a meal with friends. No vegetables with the main course, bottled beer out of date. No staff to deal with it. Very disappointed and not even one apology was offered. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone this is the first review I have ever done online as I felt it important to share my experience
