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

We were passing here today and as we were all hungry, we thought we would give it a try.....we are very glad we did. The food not only was amazing value, but of first class quality, taste and presentation. Can't recommend highly enough.

The Hare and Hounds is a lovely place to stay. Very rural setting but easy to find. The room was very small but well furnished, clean and modern. The staff were all lovely - helpful and friendly. The food was very good - well cooked and plentiful and the service was efficient. Would recommend staying here - really close to... More

The staff were very helpful and took our bags to our room, the one we had (5) was really lovely with the excellent bathroom that others have reviewed so well, and despite being over the front of the hotel, was not as noisy as I had expected, though we didn't return to our room until about 2300hrs, we'd been told...

The room was great and very spacious. Very peaceful with some lovely views. After having a generous full English breakfast we did't eat much until dinner! Food was freshly cooked and well presented. A very relaxing, peaceful and pleasant stay. Service was excellent and very friendly, Thoroughly enjoyable!

Superb location, good quality country pub serving excellent food. The cheese soufflé is a masterpiece, perfectly cooked with good delicate flavours. Steak & ale pie was a winner with 4 of our party - who ate it all despite the size of the generous helping - there was talk of trying to buy a whole one to take home.... Good,... More

We are here on Saturday night, early with our young daughter. The pub was very busy and full of a nice atmosphere by 7pm when we left. Really enjoyed the meal, as with all of the pubs in the lake district it was slightly more expensive than "chain" pubs in our local area but so much nicer due to the... More

We stayed for one night on a lovely sunny weekend. Lovely room, large bathroom with a very nice bath and a separate shower. Friendly staff. Relaxing. My husband loved his meal - 'best steak pie ever'. My starter (a soufflé) was delicious (presentation could be improved with a little green salad), the roast leg of lamb and the sticky toffee...
