4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed one night before climbing Scafell pike for which the pub is very well situated. There's a campsite across the river and this, combined with guests ensures a steady trade in season. The room was fairly basic, signs of torn wallpaper etc but clean and functional. I was a bit annoyed that the wifi which was advertised as free... More

My husband and I have frequently enjoyed sunday lunch at The Santon Bridge and recently returned for our little sunday treat. What a disappointment !! The hotel has changed hands and the standards have nose dived. As usual there were two choices of meat on this particular sunday they were beef and pork. I opted for a piece of both,... More

We booked a 4 night midweek stay in late June. The location is good if somewhat remote, being further off the beaten track than expected. That said, I'm sure its location is good for those wishing to climb the higher Lakeland mountains, or to enjoy some peace and relative tranquility. We were not over impressed by the rooms or service,... More

Typical of many Cumbrian inns there has to be a compromise between olde world and modern day traveler expectations. The Bridge Inn tries but somehow does not quite manage it. That said, the room was clean, comfortable but very warm, the public bar looked good, the restaurant okay'ish and the breakfast room..........mmmm, perhaps tried too much for the old world/antique...

Stayed here for one night whilst attending a wedding at their sister hotel, Irton Hall. Room was basic, but spacious, very clean, with lovely comfy beds. Loved the fact I could charge my drinks at the wedding venue back to the Bridge Inn and pay on departure, not many places do this. This was an added bonus. Only downside was... More
