I stayed for two nights with a group of friends. More friends were camping nearby. The location is super and most rooms have great views down to Buttermere and beyond. I stayed in Room 9. It was clean, spacious and nicely furnished. The bathroom looked as though it was new but I was told it had simply been re-decorated. Breakfast... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here recently for a paragliding event further up the valley. Fortunately our room faced in exactly the right direction for the beautiful views and the flying taking place. If this wasn't amazing enough our stay was made even more memorable by the very friendly staff at this family run establishment. Very welcoming, attentive and helpful... More

We spent the bank holiday weekend at the Fish Inn. It was fantastic. The staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms were comfortable, and the views were spectacular. We were able to order a lunch to bring on our hike up to Red Pike and beyond. We hated to leave,and we hope to return soon.

We stayed at the Fish last week having completed a long day's walk.Shortly after arriving my wife fell ill,due to the effects of the walk.I cannot speak too highly of the support and care we received. If the measure of a place is how they look after you when you need it then they score at the top. Everything else,food... More

A lovely hotel just a short stroll to beautiful buttermere lake which is an easy 4 mile walk. Room was very clean, comfortable & spacious with everything you require. View from our room was wonderful. Breakfast/evening meal was really nice. Do not have a bad word to say & can't wait to stay again.

4 nights at this place should be plenty of time to find fault. But try as I might, there really was nothing to criticise. Big comfortable room. Hearty and hot 'made to order' English breakfast, with all combinations readily available, all presided over by the amazing Angela, who had the perfect balance bwtween efficiency and friendliness and the most amazing...

This pub serves excellent lunches. The menu is excellent, the portions generous and the food well cooked and tasty. There is a good atmosphere and, being in the middle of walking country, there is no ban on walking boots being worn. It was warm and comfortable - a very pleasant, restful experience.
