We were really looking forward to staying in this Inn as it in a beautiful location with plenty of walks nearby. Due to a mistake in the date of a party we were attending, we had to cancel at 6.20 the previous night. I was advised that we might be charged, so asked if they could please call us if... More

Dear Madam, I do remember your phone call regarding a cancellation fee charge to your card, which was received after our cancellation period. When I tried to explain to you our cancellation policy, you then threated to post a bad review on Tripadvisor, if I did not refund your cancellation fee. I than informed you that I could not response... More

Stayed here for two nights to climb scafell pike. Lovely location. Good food in the bar. Excellent packed lunches for the climb. Comfortable rooms, the kids twin was two rooms with a shared en-suite which was perfect. Friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed for just one night last week, whilst visiting cousins in the area. Veronica was great in changing our room to accommodate our large dog. The room was very comfortable and furnished well. We had a very good dinner in the bar (so that Casper - the dog, not the ghost - could join us) and the service was... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was very good and very clean with a very big bed and great shower. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were great and the evening food marvellous and you didn't have to wait too long for it even on one night when they did over 100 meals. The portions are very generous... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The rooms were very clean and comfy with lovely views. The food was outstanding and local ales delicious. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and staff who gave us directions and ideas of places to visit. We will definitely return but for... More

Only ate here, did not stay. Lovely location and a traditional pub look from the outside. Good selection of ales. Had the starter of olive and feta cheese salad. No scrimping on the olives or cheese either. Then had the steak with a side salad which was fine, but there was no proper English mustard - just those dreadful sachets... More

We stayed for two nights, for a walking break. We really did had have a most relaxing time, a few too many pints of sneck lifter eased the walking pains. The food was good, a decent sized portion, that was served very promptly. The sound of the river Irt helped with a deep sleep, or was it the ale?

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The award-winning Bridge Inn, once a modest mail coach’s halt, is now a fine, well-situated, comfortable country inn offering hospitality to all travelers and visitors being close to Wastwater (Britain’s favourite view) and Scafell. 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. There are still more sheep than people!!! Excellent "REAL" food, "REAL" Ales, Log Fires and a "reet good welcome." Standards of accommodation today's travelers expect. "Home from home for the tired business person and the weary fell walker." ... more   less
