We visit here every year and did so again in December '14. It's a 'proper' pub with a real fire and you can usually get a table whatever the day, we went on Boxing Day and there were't many people in. Got a lovely seat by the open fire but there was a terrible smell as soon as we walked... More

We went for lunch last Friday and have to say the food was very poor, we both chose the home made beef lasagne and it was very dry and reheated the garlic bread was also dry and hard,best bit was the pudding a fruit pastry basket with fruit not home made.Will not be making a return visit

Lovely place to stay with or without your dogs. Great food and even better beer. Great location, near to Windermere. Very friendly staff. Plenty of off road parking. We had room 7 which was spacious and we had our own balcony.

We stopped in here for a drink after a days walking and what a great find. Super micro-brewed ales and a super friendly atmosphere with walkers, families and friendly dogs galore. Definitely worth a visit!

Main came out straight after the starter - 2 kormas, 1 beef and ale pie and 1 rib eye steak. Lovely food, great value for money. Only issue... More

Second time we have been here nice clean very friendly place to stay doggy friendly if that is what you require good breakfast and good food in the evening plus it is an Inn with a micro brewery on site worth a visit.

We have eaten there several times and stayed over once before. The second time we stayed over was disappointing to say the least. We arrived around 6.30pm and it took a while for the staff to show us to our room, but they were fairly busy so that was understandable. We ordered our food at 7pm, food is served until... More
