The worst customer service I've ever received in my life. Having mistakenly ordered an inedible curry - the Naga Curry, which is apparently one of those "Man Vs Food" type challenges and not *actual* food - I complained and asked for my money back. I'm a 34 year old woman who was looking for a meal with my partner, not... More

Three of us called in for food while staying near by, staff couldn't do enough to assist & advise, very friendly & welcoming. Lovely little place with a good menu choice. Food was quick & delicious, table cleared quickly, if ever back in the area would definitely call back.

We went here for drinks on a lovely sunny afternoon, and drank scrumpy by the River! What more could you want? The interior is old and full of character, pleasant staff and great location. I would recommend popping in if you are passing.

We spent one night at this charming little place. Staff are very pleasant and work very hard to give their best to everyone. Their range of real ale wasn't extensive but perfectly chosen. The accommodation was bijoux and a little 'blingy' but contained everything one might want for a b&b stay. Not enough room for a party but was clean... More

I must admit that some of the reviews on here are rather cutting about this place. May I say that we ignored the reviews and chose to see for ourselves, well may I say that I'm glad that we did. The rooms are very comfortable, the service was excellent and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast was lovely and... More

Stayed at the Engine to watch two days races.If you are going to races this is an ideal place to stay without paying Cartmel prices. The Engine is a couple of minutes walk from Cark station where a shuttle bus runs up to the course £4 return. The accommodation was spotless I had Room 3 which overlooked the front of... More

We stayed in the engine inn last night just as a one night break, we were both pleasantly suprised with the friendly staff and great room. The room was very clean (Room 4) and tidy and the bed was very comfy. Staff could not do enough for you and nothing was to much to ask. Its a small drive to... More
