This country house hotel is so welcoming. The rooms are clean and quaint and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. There are real ales in the bar and fantastic food. The breakfasts are outstanding you wont need to eat for the rest of the day after the full English. Although dogs are not allowed in the breakfast room the staff are... More

4 couples booked to dine and we were not disappointed, Great food served to our liking, perfect service from the waiting on staff they could not do enough for us, it was like having our own personal waiter and waitress. The food was cooked perfectly, and presented professionally. Hope they enjoyed all the banter as much as we did. Thanks... More

Lovely friendly family hotel. The food is fresh local and of a high standard with excellent presentation. There was a glass of mulled wine on arrival and the dog was made very welcome. We had the luxury of a log fire too. The only thing I could criticise would be the lack of curtain in our bathroom. Overall this is... More

Just returned after two nights at Middle Ruddings. I booked there as I was unable to get into the hotel where I usually stay in the Lake District. We were warmly received. Although the room was not large, it was adequate and good for the very reasonable price. The bar and restaurant were friendly and the food was of a... More

Took my young dog on his first hotel stay. Everyone was friendly, welcoming and very accomodating. Food is plentiful and breakfast sets you up for the day...look forward to going back again soon. We were given a discount voucher for Keswick theatre as the hotel are local ambassadors and had a great night with Comedy of Errors.

Ate here twice during last weekend's stay in Braithwaite.Service was excellent with attentive staff on both evenings.In addition there was a good selection of local ales.The conservatory which is where we ate both evenings adds to the eating experience as it takes you away from the main bar area..

We recently booked for a meal at his restaurant with our dog. The food was nice, but the service was slow. They did mention that there was a party of 30 in, so whether the serive was slow due to that, or it is always that slow, I don't know. But we were told there would be a 15min wait... More
