We stopped for drinks one afternoon whilst walking in Troutbeck area. It's a hotel with a great outdoor seating area. We did not stop for food and therefore can't comment on the menu. Enjoyed my cappuccino though.

Gorgeous place, full of character. Good food and an excellent selection of real ales. We had a comfy couple of nights sleep. The staff were excellent, friendly and welcoming. Beautiful setting right in the heart o fLakes walking country.

This was another recommendation we are glad we followed during our recent holiday in the Lakes. Although the menu is not large, the food was very tasty. Particular mention has to go for the Chowder which I had as the starter and my husband had the main - word of warning is that it is very filling and I would... More

We went here due to trip advisor reports, but were very disappointed with our Sunday roast. There were no tables inside left where we could sit and look at the view so chose to eat outside and both of us ordered a Sunday roast. It was very average with very weak runny gravy. Lots of meat but only two roast... More

Went to the mortal man July 2014. Had a fantastic meal. Large portion sizes. Not cheap but worth paying for. Enjoyed it so much we booked again before we left to go home. All staff were friendly we could take our 2 dogs in. Meal the second time was just as good. Would recommend to anyone

Happened upon this pub on a walk from Windermere. Nice pub and garden with adequate food but visit spoilt by the usual selfish dog owners who think we all love to hear their precious pets yap uncontrolled. Owner of pub advertises it as dog friendly so if you're not personality deficient and put humans above dogs you might want to... More

We called in at the Mortal Man Inn while on a hike from Ambleside. I ordered the beef burger and my husband had the haddock chowder. The food arrived quickly and was absolutely delicious. The burger was well presented with two thin patties, a nice bit of salad, with some really tasty chips. my husbands chowder was absolutely delicious and... More

Ideal hotel for short stay/weekend break. We had good double room with lovely king size bed, overlooking extensive beer garden and valley beyond. No drawer storage in the room other than bedside cabinets, but as we only stayed 2 nights we didn't unpack anyway. Bathroom a little old-fashioned but perfectly adequate. Staff all friendly and helpful. Excellent choice on the... More

A welcome tour of the Inn preceded us being shown to our room which was large and overlooked the lovely garden. The bed was made up of 2 beds pushed together which was comfortable. The Inn was built in 1687 and as you might expect was a little creaky with many rooms. The menu is simple and poorly executed. Fish... More
