Horrified by the recent reviews I tried to find an alternative, but to no avail. Since I was only staying for 1 night and my top priority was closeness to Clough Head (so that I could walk the Helvellyn range) I decided that I could endure anything! It is an excellent pub. The food was right up my street (the... More

A lovely old pub, with clean quaint rooms, they aren't big, but I didn't want to throw a party. Good service, good beers and great meals. Just outside Keswick and surrounded by the fells. Ideal for exploring the area.

After regularly travelling abroad in December, it was decided to stay in the UK and do something different. Myself and my partner are so glad we decided to pick this place out. Cosy, traditional rooms matched with good food and even better staff; We will definitely be going back this year in the summer!

A keen walker I have stayed in many "pubs with accommodation " and over the years seen some really positive improvements in the level of service and accommodation most now provide. The Horse and Farrier, where I spent a weekend to go hiking with a friend, is an exception to this and has to be the most abysmal Inn I... More

Friendly and competent staff. We were greeted pleasantly and quickly and shown to our room. We were in room 7 which had a lovely 6 foot bed, but otherwise could have done will a little more space and storage, even for the few night we were here. Things squeak and rattle a bit, but that is expected and part of... More

Having visited the pub several times over previous years, we decided it would make a lovely choice for new year. Although pricey, we felt this would be reflected in the quality. However, we couldn't have been more wrong. We were understanding when emails went unanswered prior to arrival and accepted the apology when our 3rd email was finally acknowledged. We... More

Having read the reviews on trip adviser we felt this was the perfect place to spend our new years eve. However we were gravely disappointed. The pub itself was lovely, old wooden beams, very quaint and who could ask for a better location, sat beneath the hills of blencathra. So why, given the setting and location serve frozen food? The...

Excellent hotel with very friendly staff and good quality service. The double room was ample in size and the bed very comfortable. The quality of food was excellent and the menu selection was extensive for most tastes. I would definitely stay here again, terrific location and lovely atmosphere.

We went to the Horse and Farrier on 14/11/14 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our late Dad's birth. The Farrier was his 'local' for most of his adult life, so was already a special place. Our party of ten was looked after superbly from the warm welcome, excellent menu and food and immaculate friendly service.
