The pluses - we asked for a quiet room which was provided for us and for which we are grateful. Also the bar manager Humphrey was very helpful and charming and served great beers. Our dog was made welcome though we had to eat breakfast in the bar with him. On the downside, the breakfast was very average. Also the... More

I wanted a get away to village pub, in a great location, with nice food, friendly atmosphere and not too expensive,. That's exactly what I got at Santon Bridge Inn.

We sought out this pub on a 'word of mouth' recommendation and we weren't disappointed. After a tortuous journey over the Hardnott pass, we recieved a warm welcome from the attentive, friendly staff. The pub served a good range of beers from Jennings of Cockermouth which were extremely well kept. We ordered lunch and I had the 'cheesy ham pie.'... More

I visited on Saturday with two friends for an eveing meal. We liked the look of The Bridge Inn having driven past it a couple of times. I was pleased when we entered the bar area. It was just a traditional old pub, busy and with a good atmosphere. The barman was smiley and friendly. The food however was not... More

We stayed here last weekend with friends for a two night break and we were all disappointed with this place. Our immediate impression upon arrival was how shabby the reception area was, badly in need of decorating and worn stair carpets, not a good look! The rooms we had were clean but very cramped, especially the bathrooms. The wifi was... More
