I have just arrived home after spending the night at High Cross Inn in a party of four walking friends. We discovered this place a few months ago when driven to seek shelter and hot tea because of the terrible weather. We found it to be a very friendly place, Andrew, who served us, was exceptional in his customer care.... More

Liz, the landlady, appears to be trying to run this place single-handedly: cooking, cleaning. booking, organising and catering for christenings and noisy Young Farmers' events - consequently, the experience of staying here is basic at best and verging on the bizarre at worst. While we had some sympathy for Liz's over-worked multi-tasking, we found her rather irritable when requests or... More

Our party of four booked two twin rooms. Upon arrival we were informed that the one room, part of the roof had blown off so water had got in and it was terribly damp so they had plugged in a dehumidifier, no alternative room was offered. We were also encouraged to have a late breakfast the following day as they... More

We stayed here overnight as we had an 18th birthday party to go to. Normally we stay with family when in the Lake District but this was more local. On arrival we were greeted in a very friendly manner and shown to a really nice room with views along the valley. After the party we returned to our accommodation quite... More

What made the difference here is the small team take the care and attention to be friendly, helpful and welcoming. Liz as the owner and manager is a wonderful host who ensures all the guests are taken care of. This is a rustic, quality, traditional pub with guestrooms in a fantastic location with great views of the countryside. I would... More

A quirky inn, with lovely views. My room, No. 7, was right above the bar, and the back door and the entry to all other bedrooms. So everybody has to pass it. So don't go to bed before closing time. TV and coffee and tea. It was also cold the radiator didn't work! I already knew the bathroom was shared... More

I didn't have high hopes for this place - it was pouring with rain, we needed a driving break and some lunch so we dove in to this pub, it is what I would call an "old man pub" - thats not a bad thing! It's a really beautiful building with a lovely backdrop! It's not the most modern or... More

We arrived at 19.45 expecting to eat dinner but were told that the last order had just been taken and we couldn't be served. As there is nothing else in the mear area(the pub down the road had also stopped serving!) we askd if we could perhaps get a sanswich or a bowl of soup, but were refused point blank!... More

After 5 hours bird-watching going round Hodbarrow nature reserve near Millom in warm sunshine, we needed some refreshment. The Ulverston and Westmorland Ales were excellent, and were served professionally at the correct temperature. My companions both had the special from the menu-chilli burger with home made chips and salad for £6.99. When their meals arrived I knew I had a... More
