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

My wife & I and our dog 'Jasper' stayed in a little cottage in the village and decided to eat here as it was only a stones throw from the cottage. We're both we glad we did as as soon as we entered we were made to feel very welcome by the lovely barmaid. We ordered something for evening meal... More

Rustic and a bit dusty but overall excellent value for money. Friendly staff. Quite clean apart from the obvious dust and the shower was needing attention to detail.. But nothing that a cheap bottle of bleach did not take care of. Breakfast was good but painfully slow in coming. Bear in mind that this is a holiday retreat and not... More

Visited several times for meal and drink. Meals average, pricey for what you get. Real ale, good selection of well kept ales, well justified to be in CAMRA good pub guide. Big bonus is that dog site are most welcome, free biscuits included.

Lovely pub, staff were nice and friendly. Evening food smelt and looked really good although we had reservations so couldn't try it :-( . Breakfast could had been better but it was more than adequate. Looking forward to staying again
