We have just returned from a 3 day/night stay at The Mortal Man Inn and had to write and say what a cosy and warm welcome we had from ALL the staff. The room was lovely, what a view and sooooo quiet! The meals we had there were plentiful and my husband did so enjoy tasting ALL the local bitters!... More

Excellent food and a great selection of real ales. Micheal was superb at front of house and always had a smile on his face ... on the Sarurday night he fronted and guided his team in a true professional manner. Well done Micheal and team. A true Lake District gem

I have to admit that a weekend in the Lakes has me grinning like a lunatic at the best of times, and there I was, grinning like a lunatic as the Mortal Man hove into view. A good way of triggering abusive texts from friends is to take a picture of your pint in front of one of the best... More

We stopped at The Mortal Man on our walking route over Wansfell Pike, as it seemed so did half the pub. This wasn't a problem though and walkers (and their boots!) are welcome. There's a lovely roaring fire and plenty of seating, inside and out. The staff were pleasant and there's a nice selection of ales and drinks. We didn't... More

Lovely little pub/ Hotel, out of the way but not too far from the shops. It took a couple of attempts to find it, very sharp turn off, unless approaching the hotel from the opposite side. The bed was very comfy, a beautiful decorated large room, with a lovely view of the countryside. Food was really nice but as others... More

Lovely pub, great beer selection, friendly staff and roaring log fire. ..I don't think you need much more after a good walk. We always call at this place when in the lakes, it's a welcome break if you're doing the walk from Ambleside to Troutbeck via wansfell.

We have just got back from a weekend at The Mortal Man Hotel in Troutbeck. The welcome was warm and we were promptly given a small guided tour of the hotel and its wonderful selection of fireplaces. The bar is cosy with very attentive and friendly staff. It's easy to while away hours sat next to the roaring fire. The... More

Six of my friends joined me in helping celebrate a special birthday in The Lakes. What had already been a fabulous weekend was topped off by a visit to The Mortal Man. Greeted with 'Champagne on Ice', courtesy of a very kind family friend , the night started with a bang. The food was delicious, location was cosy and inviting... More
