This pub is located in a lovely little village, right by the bridge and about 15 mins from the M6 junction 41. We arrived to a friendly welcome, a clean and tidy room and then enjoyed a relaxing bar meal and drinks. Breakfast next morning was very good and set us up for our journey. We used this en route...

Travelling on business myself and my colleague were unsure where we would end up at the end of one particular day and so decided to be spontaneous and not pre book a place to stay. We called into a few places who had no available rooms but in the end managed to find this quaint little place on late rooms,... More

We visited for one night on our way to Scotland to break the journey. We booked our room about 20 minutes before we arrived, and the lady we spoke to was very helpful and friendly. The room itself was tastefully decorated, and looked quite modern, though the bathroom was dated (the shower could have been more powerful, but the water... More

There was good and not so good on my overnight stay going north. The welcome was warm and the room was very clean (most important) but the main radiator did not work and the small electric one that remained on throughout, was less effective than a toaster. The meal I had was very good, and the service was friendly and... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this Inn. The room was small, but adequate, with a nice comfy bed and a nice bathroom. My one complaint was the music coming from what I think was the kitchen area until nearly midnight both nights, but it was not that bad. The breakfast included was standard fare and the dinners at the restaurant... More

A good basic hotel with comfortable bed.Julie and Clive were very hospitable with hearty breakfasts and the biggest main meals we have seen. Bit of a nuisance that you can't check in before 4pm. Good value for money. A relaxing stay in a lovely little town very central to Carlisle, Hadrians Wall and the Lake District.
