We stopped here unexpectedly on our way home from Scotland, needing an evening meal (traffic was worse than we expected) - we only dined here. The staff was friendly and helpful; the food was good, a standard pub grub menu, but towards the high end of that spectrum. We were the only ones in at that hour on Easter Monday,... More

We spent valentine weekend up in Penrith. Was the only hotel available. No idea why? Hotel staff very friendly, room was great! More like a suite! Only gripe would be the wifi doesn't reach all the way up that room. Definitely recommend a stay!

The room was very comfortable and well-appointed. It was not explained to me on check-in that I needed to pre-order breakfast so I was disappointed when I came down in the morning. It might be polite to explain this to guests when they check in rather than being told that 'it says so on the website' and 'it says it... More

The food menu is small but offers everything you want from a traditional pub. There is a small separate dining area or you can choose to eat near the bar. The bar dining area can be a bit noisy/ crowded. There was a disappointing selection of beers/ales on tap. The food was unimpressive, but a good standard pub meal. I... More

Thanks for your feedback, not entirely sure where you are going with this but I will try and reply to your concerns. Our main menu has a choice of 7 starters, 12 main courses not to mention a daily specials board and mid week lite bite menu. I don't think anyone would call this a 'small' menu. You are correct...

Please don't bother with this hotel. It was the worst hotel in our two week stay in England and Scotland. Upon arrival, we noticed that we had no electricity in the room, only in the sockets. We went down to reception (there is no proper reception, it's the side of the bar) and someone came up and fixed it. They... More
