My brother and I wanted to climb Scaffell Pike, but didn't want to drive back home straight after. So we look for a reasonably priced place to stop close by. Not only was the Strands Inn close by, it also had good Trip Advisor results and Scores on the Doors which I also use before going places. Although it was... More

A lovely little village pub in a great walking location. Beer was good, food was really nice and the staff were fantastic. Yes the room may have been a little cramped and dated but this is an old country pub - it was quite quaint and everything was scrupulously clean! We certainly weren't complaining as we literally saw that they... More

Stayed 3 nights (not my first visit to the Strands) for a hill walking long weekend with friends. As usual, everything was superb, rooms were great, evening meals are just fantastic - booking very advisable - and a real proper Cumbrian breakfast every morning to stoke us up for a day on the hills. The beers, which are brewed on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst doing the 3 Peaks. The nights we stayed coincided with the D-Day celebrations and the pub had been lavishly decorated in a WWII theme. The rooms were a little tired and basic but were as good as you'd expect in a pub. With no interior doors between the bar downstairs and the rooms... More

As well as having a great selection of beers brewed on site the location is one of the best in Britain. The food is better than you will get in most pubs. The rooms might be a bit small, but this is a pub. Mark and Leslie are fantastic hosts.

Stayed in the campsite opposite and had two meals and a couple of nights drinking in this pub. The real ale is brewed out the back and the beers that are not on a pull are available bottled - 30+! Obviously the beer is excellent and food is superb as well. Went for Sunday lunch and a midweek evening meal.... More

We have been here before and always call in when we are in the Wasdale area. This time we were staying somewhere else as we had our dog with us but our walk took us past Nether Wasdale so we called in here for a late lunch...and ended up staying for a couple of hours and more than a couple... More

Lovely, friendly place to stay. The excellent food and real ales from their own brewery, combined with the fantastic location made it the perfect place for me to spend my 55th birthday. It is ideally situated for Scafell Pike, about 5 1/2 miles, which we walked on Tuesday afternoon but then drove on Wednesday to do the walk up to... More

As for Bed and Breakfast it is ok. Great location next to the mountains. Very kind owners. Was able to see brewing facilities inside and was explained by the owner about the whole process. Rooms little old and noisy (noise from the pub is spreading to the first floor). Overall I am happy from the visit because I wasn't expecting... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. Food was excellent - all sourced from local providers and we ate breakfast and dinner here every day as it was so good. Lesley and Mark were fantastic hosts and the award winning ales brewed here were wonderful. Right on the doorstep for the beautiful Wast Water and a... More
