Called in for lunch on the way back from a walk in Whitehaven. The Sunday Carvery was exceptional. Home cooked, fresh roasties, vegs and Yorkshire Puds and mash. Very good prices and the staff are a credit to the establishment. Pity they only had Beef left - but not complaining as it was well cooked and a hearty portion.

Went to the white mare last month for a family Sunday dinner. Lovely place and very welcoming staff but the food was just average which was a shame as I'd heard some good reports. Meat was dry snd there was no lamb left which was one reason we went and the veg seemed to have been sat for a while... More

I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. We don't serve Lamb except on Easter Weekend, the meat normally served is beef, turkey and gammon so I am sorry if you had been told lamb would be on. We have changed a few things with the meat to try and solve the problem of the meat drying out but... More

Excellent service, great value and a really warm welcome awaited us at The White Mare during our recent visit. We have stayed there a couple of times before and had no complaints but the difference this time was quite marked. Claire and Juliet were friendly and accommodating and the staff were happy and couldn't do enough for us. We ate... More

This is one of the friendliest and most accommodating hotels I have stayed in for years. We came to West Cumbria for a long weekend and stayed in this little gem. We stayed there last year and it was fine (hence the return) but now there are new owners and they have made the place even more welcoming. Juliet and... More

I was back for my 3 monthly trip to site and normally do stay at the White Mare for convenience to site. Recent visits have been very hit and miss but this was the first since Claire and Juliet took over the running of the pub. The changes you have made are wonderful, the place has a nice friendly atmosphere,... More

Visited here last week and the Sunday lunch was fab! Any selection of vegetables and 3 choices of meats to choose from. A bit on the expensive side at 9.95 and this was just for one course. Bad points were they kept running out of things and my daughter had to wait over 20 minutes for her chicken nuggets and... More

This pub, owned by Star pubs, the new name for Scottish and Newcastle pubs, is best avoided for the time being. It has been run by a succession of temporary managers for a while and is almost always empty. My last three visits, just for an evening drink, were very poor. First time - the one real ale on was...
