We have stayed at the Wild Boar on many occasions and have never been disappointed by any aspect. This is a charming hotel with a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. All the staff are excellent and make every effort to please. We really enjoyed spending the New Year here again and look forward to our next visit.

Stayed for short break in a lovely oak beamed feature room which was slightly more than normal room price but having stayed in both types before, the individual character of the feature rooms are well worth it, we had a log burning stove/fire in our particular room which was lit on request. Staff friendly and attentive, bar area with nice... More

We stayed here for my birthday late last year for 2 nights - we could not have been more impressed. The hotel is welcoming and really cosy. We paid a little extra for a luxury room which is well worth it! The food in the restaurant is fantastic (we ate there both nights) and I would recommend trying the steaks... More

We stayed here when the whole place was taken over for a wedding. Great service and clean comfortable rooms. we thought it was the perfect place to visit in winter with the fires going. Great beer and breakfasts too. Large car park.

We stopped here on the way back from Kendal for a drink and we were so impressed with the staff and the interior of the place that we ended up having lunch too!

We decided whilst driving past the Wild Boar to call in for lunch. An open fire greeted us in the reception area, the decor and atmosphere were relaxed and in keeping with a period building. My wife ordered the home made steak and kidney pudding, I went for the lamb shank. Both meals were excellent, well presented and cooked to... More

Visited here for a friends wedding which was truly impressive. Fantastic food, drink and hospitality. The room we stayed in I thought was good value, the rate was very reasonable and reflective of room standard, if anything it surpassed expectation. Staff were great and even allowed a late check out after we had over indulged the night before! Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again. Now top of our list of places to stay in Lake District. Great food, lovely rooms. Restaurant area looked lovely but as we had our dog with us we ate in the bar area. It was still possible to order the same food (which was excellent) so this wasn't a... More

A four night stay at the lovely hotel/inn over the Christmas holiday was a wonderful experience. The 'feature' room in the main hotel was beautiful appointed and very cosy warm. Real log fires in the spacious lounge made it all the more seasonal. The food could not be faulted - local ingredients used creatively to provide something a bit different... More
