Shap is a small and quiet town straddling the A6 at the Northern gateway to the Lake District. The Greyhound was the first I found with a room available, so I'd suggest advance booking to avoid dissapointment. In keeping with the town, the hotel is a little tired looking but facilities are functional and comfortable in a relaxed atmosphere. As... More

Me and my husband have been coming here for at least over the last year or so to have our dinner on quite a regular basis. Previous to our last visit we have always had great food and great service at good prices. The last time we visited this pub around 2 months ago we decided we would never go... More

After a walk around the vicinity, we visited another local pub, and decided to give the Greyhound a try; really pleased that we did. We found it very welcoming, clean and modern. The food was excellent, both my son and had the pork steak, apple fritter, mash with Blackpudding and veg - fantastic, however wished we had asked for more... More

Great food and memorable sticky toffee pudding! It was so good we had to order another! Very accommodating about storing our bikes near the pub and the staff were friendly. Definitely recommend this place and the puddings for sure!

Our room faced the road, and with no double glazing was a bit noisy at times, though traffic was less overnight. Bathroom was very small, though the shower was quite large! Meals were very reasonably priced in the bar and restaurant and the Cumbrian Lamb Stew with Dumpling excellent.

We wish we had walked further into Shap to another pub. One steak was OK but the other was 'off'. They did provide a plate of veg as we didn't want a replacement steak. They knocked a G&T off the bill as a 'gesture' but we had to ask for the one meal to be taken off. Not a great... More

Called here on 17 July 2015 for a late dinner reservation for four, and grabbed the last table available. Excellent meal as always, quietly served, and immensely enjoyed. Lovely setting. M6 just a mile away at junction 39. Well worth the detour.

Although the staff were friendly we found this hotel overpriced. There were stains on the bedsheets, the toilet seat was broken and the shower ran hot and cold. The breakfast was lukewarm and when we asked to borrow and iron it came with a blackened surface which left marks on the shirt. I think £60 per night would be a... More

After a very long day walking from Patterdale we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Hotel , reception/bar area very nice and after climbing the impressive staircase we found the room to be very nice with en suite. Food in the evening and breakfast was excellent , would recommend highly
