At the start of the break on Friday I was drinking guiness the quality of the beer was very poor so I moved onto john smiths which wasn't bad but wasn't great. Me and my friends paid 15 pound each for the sirloin steak. The steak was very very fatty and very very thin very poor quality I must say.... More

The White Lion is a nice friendly pub. It seems popular with walkers. When we visited it was busy but we didn't wait long to be served. The only downside is the limited choice of Ale. It location is perfect for a pint after completing Place Fell.

When you've been walking for much of the day, what you want is a warm, friendly pub that serves good pub-food at a decent price. This pub meets those needs. The pub is dog-friendly too which is a bonus. The food was excellent and certainly not over-priced, and included good vegetarian options. Looking at meals appearing for others seemed huge... More

Four of us stayed here whilst on the Coast to Coast walk. Two different rooms - and they coudn't have been more different - one was huge, the other tiny! Luck of the draw I guess, and it didn't spoil a very nice night here. We all slept well! We also ate in the restaurant, and rated the food and... More

Stayed one night as part of coast to coast walk. Our room was clean but very small and we had little floor space with having cases and rucksacks. The beds were comfortable but the en suite was tiny and the shower not great. Woken by traffic before the alarm. However, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food... More

We have eaten here many times while doing our many c2c trips. They have the best jacket potatoes I have ever eaten, good wine, and lots of ambiance. The place is usually quite full with thirsty and hungry hikers and locals and it is always a fun place to be. Service is very good too. We look forward to coming... More
