Before I start, the service and the building itself was very good, however its just unfortunate that the food let them down. The Starters and Pudding we OK, however the main was very very poor. We had a Sunday lunch and I have tasted better meat from the packet at a supermarket, all the food tasted like oven baked from... More

Our group called in here for a meal on the way back to our B&B. The staff were happy to move things around to accommodate 8 people which was good. However one of our group wanted steak pie only to be told there was none (would have been nice to have been told before we ordered!). Two people wanted a... More

The staff is apaling including the owner who is always arouund... More

Visited recently for tea whilst staying in the area. Walked in at 5.30pm just as they started to serve meals, didn't get a very warm welcome from the lady behind the bar as we ordered drinks & asked for menus. I ordered a specials Chicken, ham & leek pie, there was a lack of chicken & it could have been... More

The location of this hotel is excellent for mountain biking in nearby Grizedale and we booked beacuse unlike a lot of the other nearby hotels/guesthouses there is no minimum stay period at weekends. Our room was right on the top floor and was a good size with a large attached bathroom. It was clean and comfortable but the only issue... More

Stayed one Saturday night. Twin rather stuffy room. Small fan very useful. Comfortable but small. Kettle etc, small ok tv on wall. En suite shower with little pressure. Three young staff, excellent, esp young man behind bar. Older staff, owners? fairly miserable. Good breakfast and good bar meals, served fresh and fairly quickly.

A popular bar, which is the easily the best of the 3 pubs in this small town, with good real ales and choice of spirits. The... More
