This is a good old inn set in a quiet lane in the heart of the Lake District with fantastic views and an endless number of walks that can be started from the door. It is a very busy place with numerous daytrippers and service is efficient rather than lingering. Food is standard pub food but perfectly good and just... More

8 of us were here for a birthday meal and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. Starters and mains were superb, and only 2 of us had space for dessert. Staff lovely plus fantastic views. We were also able to take our dog. Superb !! Plus a pool table - what's not to love

We had a Groupon deal. The staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable and the food was good. The deal we had, had breakfast included. This included the traditional English. We were able to ask for less or more for no extra cost. We had dinner here on one of the nights. This was also nice. Perfect place to... More

Where do we begin...supposed to be a 2 night stay, but we left on the first night! Truly disgusting inn in desperate need of an overhaul, terrible food, terrible service. Such a shame as it's location is stunning, if ran right this could be such a lovely inn. The only good part was the refuge bar-quirky but it works the... More
