We ate here two nights in a row. First night we had booked a table in the conservatory - quiet and mobile phones were frowned upon. It was very nice sitting in there, with lovely views out to the fells. Waiting staff were friendly, chatty and helpful with choices on the menu. I had steak and ale pie on the... More

Being fans of good beer we chose to stay at this Good Beer Guide establishment just off the A66 near Keswick for a weekend in the Lake District. Not only did we very much enjoy the ales offered but also the plentiful food. Breakfast offered plenty of juice/fruit and also ranged from the a full plate of the usual fare... More

We were given a lovely warm welcome when we visited in August. The Inn is very traditional in it's decor but spotlessly clean. We booked for dinner, bed and breakfast and were so glad as the quality of the food was excellent and the service too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Middle Ruddings and we hope to be back ourselves... More

A very friendly, comfortable inn with an excellent restaurant. The rooms were bright and clean with large bathrooms equipped with toiletries and extras that you usually only find in superior hotels. The food was superb, a very varied menu and well presented. There was also comfortable lounge in which residents could relax after dinner. The service was first class. The... More

This hotel was a quiet refuge and provided a peaceful, enjoyable and restful stay in this area. The staff were friendly, helpful, caring and very obliging. Breakfast was wonderful, varied and delicious. The hotel is close to the city but transport is needed to get about. There is a huge number of attractions within the area as well as many... More

My wife and I were staying at the HPB property down the road and decided to eat here on a Monday night. The food was very good (the lamb in particular) and the beer was also excellent. They book the table for the evening for you so there is no rushing you out for another sitting. We liked it so... More

We have just returned from a 'too short' stay in the Lake District which included attending a family wedding. Middle Ruddings is a lovely small hotel and good value for money. The food is great - large portions, good quality and selection and lots of choice for those with special dietary needs. Special mention to Liz's homemade muesli. The rooms... More

We have eaten at the Middle Ruddings many times because they are so friendly and welcoming of both us and our dog, but this was the first time we have stayed, having persuaded two sets of our friends from the South to sample the delights of the Lake District. We stayed for three nights at the beginning of August and... More
