The room was spotlessly clean. Both the food and the service were great, we both throughly enjoyed it. Had a very comfortable night. We had to... More

We ate our evening meal here with our friends and their two children and it was a wonderful evening. The place itself is an old coaching inn and is just as you might expect with a fabulous atmosphere, roaring fire, great real ales and a warm welcome. The food, I had the lamb tagine which was excellent, was very good... More

Stayed at this hotel and restaurant several times and it has been perfect every time, with a really nice room and a great meal and morning breakfast. The hosts and all the staff were great and made us feel very welcome. Can't wait until we go back again. Give it a try as we are sure you won't be disappointed.

Lovely old building in a lovely little village. Peaceful and quiet. Sorry car trip to Carlisle about 4-5 miles. Managed to check in early due to the cracking staff who are all very polite. Room was good with no faults. Breakfast was decent as well. All round it was a perfect trip

We were made to feel very welcome by owner Colin. During our mid week one night stay it was very quiet resulting in a sound night's sleep. Our room was spotlessly clean, warm & well equipped. Both the bar & dining room are very atmospheric & meals were large & hearty. All in all, an excellent place to stay &... More
