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

After a rather tough, but exciting day in the fells, the White Lion was a welcome sight! The staff was very helpful and while my (solo) room was small, it was quite comfortable for my weary body! Not having an en suite bathroom was a bit of an inconvenience, but the friendly people & the great breakfast more than made... More

We popped in to the White Lion on the way back from Bowness. It was not realy planned but the day was getting late. I had a tasty Burger, very filling and a good Patty with a decent Cheese. Chips were a little generic, would have been nic to see some hand cut ones but they did the job. The... More

Stayed here on the C2C route as the weather had turned dreadful and camping really was not an option! A couple at the previous stop had cut their holiday short and offered us their room so we really didn’t know what to expect. A very old pub, set right on the roadside. We arrived in the rain, after 5 hours... More

The food (both dinner and breakfast) is good. Good portions and tasty. The service is very good. The rooms let the place down a little. They are very small and the one we had didn't have any soundproofing for the road outside or other rooms.

We have passed here so many times in the car and not realised what age it is. One night stay on our coast to Coast trip .booked it partly because it was dog friendly. What a good job we did. It was an excellent night. The evening meal was superb as was the breakfast next morning. Staff couldn't have been... More

Spent one night here on the C2C in a tiny room overlooking the narrow road and a small vacant area opposite where smokers congregated. On the plus side the pub is old, atmospheric and quaint. The food was reasonable and the breakfast was good. This hotel advertises itself as being extremely friendly to guests. We found the staff to be... More
