Just enjoyed a lovely stay, very homely, warm hospitality from all staff, and loved how dog friendly it was (though our pooch was left behind this time). Great breakfast - home made muesli, scrambled egg and sausage as the highlights. Cosy bar for our after dinner entertainment. This place helped make the Lakes District a winner for us.

Good value, good food, great breakfast, real ales and friendly staff. Great base for walking in the the Northern Lakes and Keswick 10 minutes away in the car. The local pubs were good for us to watch the World Cup on big screen. Will return

I'll start on the lows and finish with the highs. Our bathroom had a jacuzzi bath which turned out to be just a bath, a slight disappointment after a day in the hills but not a big deal. The TV in the room was the size of a postage stamp! Not conducive to watching Wimbledon or the World Cup but,... More

Nice little hotel and pub- Clean - The staff are very friendly- food is excellent we had the evening meal on the first night steaks cooked to perfection - I can recommend this venue for a quiet break-- Keswick is 2 miles away and easy to reach.

The staff, particularly the owner, were great and the selection of real ales was excellent. The rooms were a little old and run down, but everything was clean and the shower was good in our room. Braithwaite is a lovely place to stay - we ate in the hotel on the first night and then in two other local pubs,... More

2 nights b and b for 3 middle aged blokes intent on walking and drinking. Middle Ruddings is a smashing place to stay. Braithwaite is a superb village to explore the fells without using a car. The rooms here are good spacious clean and well equipped. The food was very good pub grub cooked freshly to order. Just the job... More

Four of us stayed at Middle Ruddings this week. The accommodation was first class. The staff could not do enough for you. We stayed on the bed/breakfast and evening meal tariff. Value is amazing! Would recommend that you go for this option! The food was excellent - we could not fault it! Will certainly be returning to this lovely establishment... More

3rd visit for me and this time with even more friends in tow for food. Great service as ever, the staff could not do more for us and the food is wholesome and plentiful. The draught local beers are a perfect accompaniment. We will be back again. See you soon.
