Visited this pub at Easter week so went on a daily basis, weather was stunning so sat in garden at the rear which had plenty of seating area, however the service by Colin behind the bar was dreadful, the most miserable person I've ever came across working in a bar, he almost put me off my beer, very sarcastic too,...

I must admit we descended en mass, on our way to our cottage in the Lakes. We also wanted to watch the Arsenal v Liverpool game and this place seemed to fit the bill. I'd have thought that with 18 of us landing for lunch, he'd have been really pleased to see us, but sadly not. It's a great little... More

A friend and I came to this pub after a walk, we didn't stay for food, and the pub was much quieter than its sister pub across the road, but the service and friendly staff were what made this pub. Charlotte and Martin couldn't have been friendlier, we would have goneback across the road to eat in a busier pub,... More

Further to my review of the Horse & Farrier, I also ventured to The Sally during both Christmas Day and New Years Eve. Originally we were planning on going in to Keswick for New Years Eve but after having a cracking time on Christmas Day evening, and being made very welcome by the owner, we decided to stay on further....

We were staying in the Horse and Farrier the sister pub across the road which was very pleasant. As the restaurant in the Horse and Farrier is exactly that and not really a bar we decided on the second evening to pop across to 'the Sally' and have a drink here. The guy behind the bar was very abrupt, I... More

We stopped here for lunch having walked along the disused railway from Keswick. From the minute we took a seat it was clear the barman/landlord was completely disinterested in us. Everything was too much trouble and we only stayed put because we were waiting for the next bus to take us back to Keswick. If it hadn't been raining hard... More

On arrival seemed like a good find. Had four beer pumps although only one of these in use. So had to be the Wainwright which was very mediocre and too cold. The round for four of us was £17 which put us off staying so after our disapponting drink we adjourned to the Horse and Farrier which was in a... More

We ate at the Sally as a change from the very busy Horse and Farrier opposite and thought the food was excellent and the reception very friendly. There's nothing pretentious about the place or the food (so refreshing when compared with so many pubs these days) and it was excellent value. Would go again.

just got back from a long weekend at this fabulous bed and breakfast in Threlkeld which sits at the base of Blencathra mountain. The Sally is owned by Jooles who has the Horse and Farrier inn in the same village. We had room 3 in the salutation 'Ash Ghyll' which was absolutely enormous with a tiny but adequate bathroom. It...
