I was booked in to stay here for one night while walking the coasr to coast route. I was given a key code to let myself in and a message that the proprietors would see me later. When I arrived I went in and it was obvious that the pub was no longer in use. I found my bag with... More

We have been visiting this pub for a few years now but on our last visit we were disappointed. It is difficult to park and the rooms are a bit depressing but the food and atmosphere always made up for that. On our last visit it was obvious that something was different as the atmosphere had changed (it seemed somehow... More

Chalky has given the the pub something essential to make places like this work! SOUL! Amazing welcome on a Monday night. Thats right - the landlord working on a MONDAY night. Wonderful food and beers - good wine selection and underfloor heating for our four legged friends. Enjoyed the banter and a great game of nails - a doffed cap... More

The pub has fairly recently changed hands but maintais a commitment to good food using locsl produce, excellent local real ales and a great wine list. The landlord contributes to the marvellous ambience which is completed by the open fire and authentic decor. Not much parking in thr narrow lanes of this remote, beautiful part of the Lake District. Well... More

We stayed up the road from the pub and found ourselves walking down for a few lunches and dinners. The staff were lovely and welcoming. I can recommend the withnail tart- rather good!

We received a very warm welcome from the Landlord, who was very happy to chat with us. The pub was quiet, and I imagine it to be very cosy in the winter months. Food was very good and tasty. Well worth stopping by if you're in the area. It's approximately 10-15 minutes drive off the M6 so perhaps an alternative... More

Stayed here as family of four on C2C walk. Had a lovely welcome from the landlord and his dogs. The rooms were small but very comfortable. Our evening meal was excellent and was the best on our whole walk. The bar was quirky and had a large tree trunk. This was used to play a game knocking nails into the... More

A very cosy old pub refurbished with a stripped down rustic style - old wooden pews for seats, exposed old brickwork, open log fire and subdued lighting make for a warm and relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a great menu peppered with references to the cult film Withnail and I, which was in part filmed in the village - Camberwell Carrot...
