My partner and I visited Appleby for two nights and were so impressed with the pub that we visited three times in the three days! Our first visit was for a light bite of lunch- however the extremely generous Fish Finger and Bacon and Brie sandwiches that were delivered were enough to keep us going for the rest of the... More

Just returned from a three day stay here and got to say the cottage was excellent. Myself and four other girls stayed here and had a lovely relaxed stay. The cottage itself had everything you could need and was very comfortable and quiet. The two bedrooms were a nice size and the bathroom was ample too, with a very nice... More

Tea in a pub is often less than brilliant and this was no exception. Service slow but friendly and good quality assortment of cakes. Tea very weak teabags - why does a well-established hostelry not do a decent cuppa? - 4 bags between 5 people and refill of hot water only.

Had a lunch whilst on break from settle Carlisle train journey (we did northern rail rather than steam train. Great value £13 return for the panoramic section we did) Pub is a 15 mins stroll from railway station. Nice staff, good food, good ale. Worth a look, nb not in town centre Appleby a bit quite mid week

Called in for a late lunch. Lunch priced at £9.50 so expectations high. Total disappointment. Whilst the meal was hot, it had clearly been pre cooked and warmed in a microwave. The beef was wafer thin and obviously pre cooked and sliced, by supplier. The pork was little better. Only two veg and fried (roast) potatoes, Small portion and left... More

The atmosphere is relaxed and warm, all staff showed 10star customer service. The room was well furnished and very clean, a great stay we... More
