I arrived dripping wet from day 4 of my coast to coast walk, the staff were helpful and welcoming despite me dripping on their floor. The drying room is inadequate for a pub that gets so many wet walkers arriving but the fire and the welcome and very warm. Room was clean and comfy if a little on the small... More

Just come back after staying in THE GREYHOUND in Shap, Cumbria, from 28th November 2014, for two nights. The room was excellent, the bed was so big and comfy, and the food was great. Jane and Chris, the owners, made our stay so relaxing. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again, and would highly recommend this... More

We stayed here after a walk over wasdale pike with our German shepherd dog. We stayed in a suite and were more than happy with the room, it was beautiful with original brickwork and subtle decor. The brilliant thing is that we were able to take our dog with us and she was made extremely welcome being as she is... More

Rather small single room but the welcome I got after turning up muddy and exhausted after a long day walking more than made up for it. Dinner was lovely and a mistake made by the (rather inexperienced) teenage waitress was soon spotted and sorted out by the woman in charge. Good value for money - would stay here again.

On a charity bike ride we needed somewhere to stop outside with bikes and equipment. On arrival a very helpful employee took our water bottles and filled them for us and allowed us to use the facilities. Brilliant customer service.
