Just returned from an overnight stay at the old posting house, went for a new year break with our bull mastiff, Mick was extremely welcoming and couldn't do enough to keep us and the dog happy, dog was relaxed on his first break from home and even helped to finish off our meal as the portions are on the large...

Easy to find. Received a warm 'welcome home' from Mick on arrival. Food was faultless from a menu with a good choice of meals including gluten free options.... More

Stopped for a quick lunch during our recent fishing trip and was very pleased with our lunch. We ordered the chicken, ham and leek pie with chips & peas from the mini menu which was supposed to be a small'ish portion but was ample for two hungry salmon fisherman. The Jennings bitter was well kept and there was plenty of... More

We stopped by the Old Posting House for a pub lunch while out for walks in the lakes and it was superb. They even stayed open a bit later for us to have our lunch. Great atmosphere and a very interesting ceiling collection.... Definitely recommend for the lunches and pints!

We visited on 9th September , staff very friendly , menu had plenty of choice (maybe to much?)food very good, added bonus we were allowed to take the dogs in with us. We would highly recommend. Location is excellent for the Western Lake District. Not far from Cockermouth and easy to locate being on a main road

PLEASE SEE MY REVIEW FOR 'THE OLD POSTING HOUSE' , also in Deanscales, Cockermouth, which turns out to be the same establishment !!!!!! The only difference is'THE'. Interestingly one of the reasons we booked a table, for dinner, here is because the other site gives a star rating of 5 and a placement of 3rd best in Cockermouth. This rating... More

As previously stated, the location is excellent for the Western Lake District. Not far from Cockermouth and easy to locate being on a main road. This latter feature is also a slight disadvantage with some road noise if your room is by it. Parking is plentiful and at least two of the rooms (6 & 7) have been upgraded to... More
