We called in here to watch the match and have something to eat having been tempted in by the special offers on the A board outside. Found a seat, sent hubby to the bar and ordered drinks then asked about food that had unfortunately stopped being served (hint, take the board in, then!). The wine was very good quality and... More

Lovely quiet rooms in the yard at the back of the pub. Very comfy bed. Pub great with a good range of hand-pulled beers and nice welcoming staff. Car park entrance is VERY tight, thankfully my door mirrors fold back at the touch of a button. Only downside of the stay was that the kitchen was being refurbished so there... More

I visited the Sheakespeare Inn a few years back, and found the acommodations to be spacious and clean. The hosts were kind and forthcomming. Breakfast was standard english of the best homecooked kind.

We were resigened to sitting outside until I asked if we could sit in the bar area, the guy behind the bar was very accommodating and dealt with us and the... More

Our room was out the back of this pub in central Kendal - a bit like a motel room. Room was fairly clean and basic. Pub table and chairs immediately outside bedroom window must make for a very noisy night at weekends. On checking in we were told that we could opt out of breakfast and have our bill reduced...

Great location, decent price, terrible attitude from the landlord, very rude to my guest, paid for breakfasts upfront but was informed by the cleaner he would not come down from "upstairs" 20 mins before end of service! Never again, avoid at all costs

The room was clean and very comfortable. Geoff and Sue gave us a very warm welcome. Breakfast was excellent. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area. The pub was welcoming and the locals were very friendly.
