Just had a great 2 night stay here with a friend whilst we walked in the area. Very friendly,helpful staff and the rooms looked like they'd just been updated with new bathrooms. Good nights sleep as very quiet. We ate in the bar both nights, lovely food. Would recommend.

We took advantage of the winter accommodation deal at the White Lion in Patterdale and this certainly proved to be excellent value for money. At £25 per person per night and £30 at the weekend this was an excellent deal but with 3 nights for the price of 2 it was a fantastic deal. Outside of January and February the... More

I stayed at the White Lion on New Years eve and new years day as I was attending a wedding locally. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent and good value with a very good selection of beers. The mulled wine going down very well. The rooms are small but it was all we needed so... More

Sorry to the staff in the kitchen who prepared and cooked our food because if this was a review about you it would be a five rating. Sadly your colleagues FOH have little care or trainning in dealing with customers, I feel bad for the kitchen because it wouldn't take much to deal with this issue. So to possible customers... More

Stayed there for three nights with two friends. Everywhere very clean. The rooms are comfortable, warm and well decorated. Not quite as glamorous as the website pictures but you can't blame them for using their best 'shots'. We ate there for two nights and the food was suitably varied, good value and tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful and... More

We called in for lunch after a longish walk. The dog was welcome, the barmaid was lovely - very friendly. The pub smelt of stale cooking fat so I wasn't expecting a lot from the food but actually it was really good. Lovely homemade soup, and a generously filled very fresh baguette. Husband really enjoyed his ham, eggs and chips.... More

The hotel was easy to find with plenty off spaces to park in. Our room was small buy very clean and extremely cosy. Bathroom facilities were a couple of doors away from our room which wasn't an issue and we had private access which was great. I was most impressed with the service we received from the staff who were... More

There are only a handful of places to stay in at Patterdale and we ended up at The White Lion because that was all we could book on our Coast to Coast trek. And a lucky thing that we did too! The White Lion is really nice little pub with very friendly staff and a lovely public area. Our room... More

I really liked the White Lion, from the outside it doesn't look like the best pub but once you get in you're welcomed by a freshly prepared menu with specials all of which seem to be made using local produce. There is also a great, varied beer selection and the staff and service are great. For me, it was the... More
