We were staying in a cottage near by and spotted this on the way past, thought we would check it out for a drink first and take the dogs. Great place to sit in the sun and also great for doggie people, water out front. Staff all young and very uninterested in people, we had a look at the menu... More

We treated ourselves to the 2 bedroom cottage on the end of the terrace. Whilst self catering is fine, we elected to order our meals from the pub and have them delivered to our front door when they were ready so that we could have an intimate meal for 2 in the cosy cottage. We have been several more times... More

Good hotel, the staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very reasonably priced with a good variety of dishes. The specials change nightly and this gives you some nice alternatives to the usual menu. My room was in the attic and I have to say it was lovely. There is a bit of traffic noise during the day...

We arrived with no expectations as we hadn't planned to stay in Appleby. Booked in at the last minute and found the staff great when we arrived - the booking hadn't come through but it wasn't a problem. We were in a garden room - lovely access to the tables and chairs, and thought the 'foster' teddy a lovely touch... More

The unattractiveness of the exterior of this inn (ugly) belies the interior which, apart from the bar area (very pubby), is to a high standard (good). We stayed in a premier room and were pleased with the decor and the quality of the fixtures and fittings. The dining room was similarly well appointed and the food was not bad (the... More

My husband and I and my parents had a meal here. I was very disappointed with my meal. I had the breaded mushrooms, which were that dry that I really thought they had been reheated. I had the chicken stroganoff for my main course, which I was also very disappointed with. I feel sure the rice was out a packet!!... More

rooms comfortable, although a lot of traffic going past at the front as on a main road. Food good. Dogs very welcome and the bag of treats and a new ball very well received! The garden at the back is a bonus, and I must mention the ladies toilets in the bar as they are amongst the nicest I have... More
