We needed two nights in the Lake District and the Inn was able to help with one and we would have stayed for a second. The room met our needs and breakfast was good with lots on offer. We would come back as handy to Keswick and the surrounding area.

This is our third visit and once again we weren't disappointed. The hotel is homely and the bedrooms are fitted in a traditional style. The best thing about this hotel is the service and the friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy. The hotel is open to the public for meals and is... More

Good clean accommodation with very friendly and capable staff, but the best is the FOOD . One of the very best places that I have eaten at both evening meal and the great British breakfast. Recommend you starve before going as you are bound to enjoy the food.

Lovely food in a pleasant setting with friendly and efficient hosts. Best of the three pubs in Braithwaite but recommend booking at busy times. We ate on a Sunday evening and weren't rushed at all but they did double covers on most tables.

We've been wanting to eat here for ages and we went on Sunday arriving about 1.30pm. The menu had excellent choices of food which is sourced locally, and the bar always has a good selection of real ales and ciders, having won many Camra awards over the years. For starters I had a plate of Cumbria meats,cheese,chutney with 2 hot... More

To visit a pub at lunchtime with two small children can be a bit hit or miss but the food was delicious and the service was fantastic! My girls loved playing on the grass outside and we all really enjoyed the food. The steak pie was great and the gammon portion was only just manageable!!
