Had previously visited the restaurant and had a couple of good meals but this time we stayed. We booked at very last minute and got the very last room. We were told when booking that this room was the smallest they had and this honesty we appreciated. The room was clean and had everything required. 2 very small issues were... More

We visited twice, on the first night of our stay we popped in for a pint and thought it nice looking bar and decided to call back for food the following evening. I wish we hadn't! I ordered the Wilton and vegetable crumble and my partner had the steak and kidney pudding with mash. The vegetarian food was awful, the... More

This accommodation is not as described. Decor the same but photos must have been taken years ago. Room full of damp and dry rot. Cob webs in all corners of the room and cracks and dirty marks over the walls. No power at all in shower and water keeps going very hot or cold. I asked for clean towels on... More

Good food for what you pay, nice atmosphere, convenient location, quick service. We ate as lunchtime so ordered from the £5 lunch menu. I had fish and chips, batter very thick and so not cooked properly underneath - unpleasant. Boyfriend had burger which tasted good, he was very happy! For the price you can't complain, you get what you pay... More

I had a few days annual leave left, so fancied the trip up from Essex, having not been to Lake District before. I travelled alone, so pub type B&B was all I required. The double room maybe needs a bit of attention on window frames & wallpaper but, bed was comfy, shower cubicle looked fairly new, tea & coffee making... More

Chose here as menu looked good and they did battered haddock - many places just do cod. Went for the said fish, which was very nice served with sliced bread and butter and mushy peas, very tasty, however, if susceptible to oily foods probably best to avoid. Partner had sausage - cumberland of course - and mash (no veg served... More

Fantastic breakfast and very helpful staff especially Reg. The only criticism would be the mattress on the bed is really uncomfortable. We stayed in the large King room. Nice location. Parking is on the street but permit is provided.
