Our large party booked for early Saturday tea, with lots of kids. The excellent staff went out of their way to cater for the kids' needs and didn't bat an eyelid at any of the requests or general chaos. The food was great. Would highly recommend for families.

We really enjoyed ourselves in this friendly pub. Ale brewed on site is fantastic, in particular the IPA. The beer is priced at standard craft ale prices I.e around £3 per pint but your paying for quality. The food is quite pricey but you get big portions. I had the fish and chips which was around £11. The fish was... More

What a fabulous 3 day break in the snowy Lake District in a hotel that has it's own real ale brewery on site and a roaring fire to warm your toes after a day's walking. A decent menu to chose from a bit limited if you are veggie like us, but great for the dog who isn't who was given... More

What a great pub, what a great hotel, Lovely staff from the top to the bottom. Sue the owner practically jumps through hoops of fire to make sure you are looked after. The food is excellent and the beer superb. the room was spotless and the whole ambience was perfect. We shall most definitely come again.

There are lots of positive things to say about this hotel. The location is lovely, the food is great, the beer is superb, etc. But I think the thing that really makes this place stand out from the crowd is the staff, who were unfailingly welcoming, good-humored, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend a visit, even if only to... More

Only went in for a drink. Can confirm the ales were good and well kept (as they should be if they are brewed there!). The IPA was excellent but the draft barley wine had ran out and they weren't going to change it until that evening for some reason. Like many reviewers I have to say the prices were steep.... More

What a lovely find. This old Inn is in the heart of the village with the 'Old Man' very nearby. (His toe is in the residents lounge)! We arrived with friends and their dog late morning and were after two rooms for the night. The welcome we received was outstanding, and within a few minutes we had looked at the... More

We ate here on a Friday evening in late February. The pub is situated centrally in the village, about 2 minutes away from the main car park. It is a traditional Lakeland building, with some modernisation inside making for a spacious but cosy atmosphere. The beer is excellent and could scarcely be more local. I can recommend the beer bat,... More

Visited without booking but soon found a table. Great menu choice plus specials board. I had whitebait and plaice special.....both delicious, could probably have shared whitebait. Husband had soup and hot pot. Children had chicken and burger. Although we all struggled to finish food was delicious and enjoyed by all. Staff really friendly and husband loved the ale. Definitely worth... More

Arrived at 1730 on Sunday and fortunately for me they had some roast beef left on the menu. Dry banter from the chappie behind the bar and a pub full of smiling people who were all so friendly. The Roast arrived and was delicious, husband had the burger which he said was lovely to. Dog was given some beef leftovers... More
