A group of nine friends, we spent a lovely weekend in Middle Ruddings. It is a bustling inn & restaurant downstairs and a warm, comfortable guest house upstairs. In the restaurant, the menu is varied and the portions are generous. We hope to be able to book again for our annual Lakes weekend. Thank you

For walkers, cyclists or as a base to explore Keswick or the local area this place is ideal, right on the fells and mountains just off theA66 with walks and rides for all tastes. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel welcome by Andy, Liz and the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is more... More

Stayed here for two nights - Friday 17 and Saturday 18 April 2015 with my wife, daughter and dog on a DB&B basis. We found the hotel to be friendly, unpretentious and homely with great staff. It is located in a very handy location - just off the A66 with good access for exploring the northern part of the lakes.... More

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the Lakes that is easy to get to and a good base for visiting the area then I recommend Middle Ruddings. This is a really lovely place with really helpful and friendly staff and a superb cooked breakfast that sets you up for the day.

Hotel stands apart for the friendliness & professional service of the staff. Restaurant and bar have warm welcoming atmosphere. Menu choice and quality of evening meals is excellent - recommend the dinner, B&B package if you are hungry enough for 3 courses (or just 2 very tasty ones!). Real ales on offer too & vary each night. Hotel also caters... More

Our first time in the Lake District - and we were not disappointed! The Inn is in a small village, very convenient for exploring the lakes - we even managed a trip to Scotland (which is only 40ish miles) and the Yorkshire Dales. The staff are very friendly and professional, nothing seems too much trouble. Breakfast was plentiful with a... More

Four of us regularly visit the Lake District and this was a first visit to Middle Ruddings, having previously stayed in the other pub in the village. The atmosphere is warm and friendly just like the staff. Great selection of real ale on the Friday night that was changed to an alternative selection on the Saturday. What's not to like?... More
