I spent a week in the Lakes and had this Hotel recommended to me for serving good food and was not disappointed. What started as a meal for one night ended up being about 5 or 6. The food is excellent and service is very good. The staff are helpful and friendly and if you stay in the area, try... More

We had called twice now at The Hare & Hounds for a drink, once in March whilst staying in the lakes for the weekend and recently in August whilst dinghy sailing at Coniston. On both occasiions the staff were welcoming and friendly and was busy not only with visitors, obviously staying in the accommodation, but with visitors having meals. Majority... More

After hastily booked on a Thursday morning we arrived a liitle bit after midday in order to make the most of the great weather. Thankfully they were expecting us but, as we were early, our room wasn't quite ready. We decided to grab a beer in the beer garden which had an immaculate lawn and views over the valley behind...

This is a gem in the beautiful Lake District. Tripadvisor awards are proudly displayed, and rightly so. The bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious and seem to have been recently refurbished. The bathroom in our room was lovely, with shaker-type panelling in a Cotswold grey colour. There was a deep standalone bath and a powerful rainfall shower – just what... More

We ate twice at the Hare and Hounds during our recent visit to Bowland Bridge. The first occassion was Sunday lunch with our family. Having read positive reviews we decided to pop in on the Saturday and see if we needed to book. The pub was already fully booked for inside tables (outside tables don't need to be pre-booked) but...

Staying in Crosthwaite for the week, we were spoiled for choice with several excellent pubs serving good food and drink close by, ie the Punch Bowl, Masons Arms, Brown Horse....and the Hare and Hounds! We had a very enjoyable evening meal in this friendly pub - I had the lamb hot pot and my wife had the trout potato cakes... More

Stopped off here for Sunday lunch with a group of friends. Lovely place in a lovely setting. When we arrived there were many empty tables inside but we were told there wasn't any available for us to eat inside due to other reservations. I was a little disappointed about this as whilst nice weather it was windy at times so... More

Visited here with my husband last weekend and had a wonderful time. The weather was glorious so we were able to sit outside with a glass of wine and watch the world go by! Our room (4) was one of the newly refurbished and was so nicely done. The bed was comfy, bathroom fabulous and the views were spectacular. The... More
