I wish there was a rating between Average and Very good as I would give this B&B that rating. Once I had got over the shock of the wallpaper pattern, I realised that actually although the room decor was a bit dated and shabby, the room was very clean and there were some nice touches like a mint on the...

stayed in this pub after deciding we needed to get away after a long week at work. It looked nice on the pictures and the rate for a saturday was very reasonable. Was not disappointed. We had a lovely meal in the bar with a nice beer and a walk along the river. My wife recommends the signature salad dish,... More

We stayed here for a long weekend, the room was very clean, food lovely, clearly local produce (even saw to my tiny stomach - portions generous) food is served after 2.00pm on a Sunday!! They have a fab reading room, great bar with a roaring fire and a beautiful breakfast room. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. We... More

Stopped at the Santon Bridge after a walk with the dogs. No food after 2pm on Sundays. Weak coffee and no cakes, scones or biscuits to have with it. A poor showing on all fronts. Went to the Brook House in Eskdale instead which does food all day and good coffee and cakes. Must do better.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, as our serving times on a Sunday for lunch are from 12:00 to 3:00pm We do not serve scones at the Bridge Inn as we have other desserts available during these times. Sorry you did not inform a member of staff at the time the coffee was not as strong as you... More

Whilst staying with friends for the weekend and after a Saturday afternoon visiting the pubs in Eskdale, 6 of us plus a gorgeous black Lab decided to have our tea here. The food and service were all top notch and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend a visit here if you are in the area

Had an overnight stay at end of Feb,2014 . Room and bathroom were immaculate. Made to feel very welcome there. Very homely atmosphere, lovely décor , bar area felt more of a "local" than my own local. Superb base for a walking holiday. Recommend, and I will certainly be going back there.

We took our 3 young girls and Dalmatian dog to Eskdale for February half term. We stayed in a cottage just up the road from the Bridge Inn. The highlight of the week by far were our trips to the Bridge. We visited 4 times, twice for drinks and twice for food. Each time we were given a very warm... More

Living locally and having heard the food is good, my partner and I decided to pop in on Sunday lunchtime. We recently moved to Cumbria and are looking for good places to eat to take the numerous visitors we have. When we arrived at the bar the gentleman who was to serve us could not even raise a smile or... More

Well behaved dogs are also welcome. The Western Lakes and Fells are spectacular and here in this quiet valley there is still the peace and tranquility that should be Lakeland.
