My colleague & I had an evening to spare on a tour around the Lakes & chose to spend am evening having a beer & meal. We asked the barman if we could have a football match on the tv with radio commentary only. He was kind enough to oblige. In the bar were a couple known to the staff... More

We stayed here for one night B & B and what a great place in a beautiful, relaxing location. After a day spent walking up to Helvelyn we checked in with a lovely member of staff before having a bar meal which was very tasty. Then we spent an evening in the warm, comfortable bar with real ale & very... More

Been here a couple of times, usually just for a beer after a long walk but this time I fancied a starter and a meal with a few drinks. The food wasn't bad and the drinks were OK but the service was just terrible, when I asked for a drink I was stared as if I'd just asked what E=MC2... More

Used to come four or five times a year for drinks and or food as the location Is just superb. The food has always been good bordering on OK but recently the menu has been overhauled slightly, out have come the wooden plates in an extremely lame attempt to evoke some quality but the food now is just bland and...

I didn't stay here but I did have drinks and eats. This place is well known and it's a great place to gather for happy hour and a meal. Sat with many friends I met on the C2C walk. They had a good selection of ale and their food was very tasty. Would definitely go here again.

We got to Patterdale after a nasty climb up and over Kidsty Pike in wind and rain, so we were soaked through and tired. It was fab to find a comfy room and shower and emerge to refreshed for some of the all day food. We also noted how they looked after other weary walkers and tried to find them... More

Visited this pub several times over the last few years. We stay in a cottage nearby. The food seems to be gradually getting worse. It's always been basic but it's like they no longer care. On this latest visit we both tried to play safe with steak and chips. Limp chips, boiled veg and a poor piece of meat. The... More

Been a couple times before and have always enjoyed the bar meals and real ale. The staff are consistently nice and the atmosphere is the type I like. Love the tables at the top level right in front of the main door; bit private and great views of the fells. This time around was staying at the YHA Patterdale and... More

Walked to this pub from nearby Glenridding as its recommended in the "Rough Guide". Pub was busy with most tables full of people eating. Bar area looked tired and carpet in need of a good clean/overhaul. Paid the princely sum of £7.20 for 2 glasses of Pinot. Sat down took one mouthful, the wine was just horrible. Instead of complaining... More
