It was just a one night stay but I thoroughly enjoyed it and will happily go back again. We had dinner and I could not fault the food at all. The room was comfortable. Breakfast was good and hot, how it should be. Very enjoyable.

We stopped here on a Monday lunchtime on the way to a short to a short break in the lakes. It is a proper old fashioned village pub with a very pleasant ambience. It was very quiet, there was only one other customer, but the welcome was genuinely warm and friendly and the food and drink was freshly cooked and... More

One of those occasions where you read the reviews and feel pretty sure that going there for a meal is going to be worth the drive to get there, our experience today is that it wasn't. First of all the good points, the owners have put a lot of effort into "kerb appeal" the flowers outside the pub certainly catch... More

Visiting our son at Lancaster Uni, our first time bringing our 4 month old puppy with us, we were struggling to find somewhere that would welcome us and our dog for an evening meal. Popped in on the off chance, so pleased we did, wonderful food, ample portions, lovely staff and even a biscuit for our puppy from the landlord!... More

We stayed at the Kings Arms for two nights for a visit to Levens Hall which is nearby. The hotel is a very good base for the South Lakes. Its on the old A6 road and is very easy to find. It's a typical coaching pub with 6 bedrooms. Our room was very pleasant, with a four poster bed (that... More

Happened to phone just as someone had cancelled so managed to get a room. The room is compact but has everything you need (TV and drinks/biscuits). The evening meal was very enjoyable with a great selection and first class service. Breakfast was also very good.

We stopped to find a bed for the night and the only rooms available were up two flights but the landlady called the B&B across the road and they had a room which was more suitable as I was on crutches. Not many hotels will send you to their competitors and forfeit a money making opportunity it was pleasing to... More

Just popped in for a quick bite on Monday lunch. The building was so warm and inviting and the flowers on the outside were beautiful. Once inside we were greeted by the most fantastic hosts Anne and Neil. Nothing was too much and service was outstanding nothing was too much trouble. We ordered the food which came promptly and was... More

Best Sunday roast i have had in a long while, I had the roast pork and my wife had the roast beef, both meals were absolutely fantastic. Good friendly service and a excellent selection of cask ales which were very tasty!!
