The proprietor of the cottage where we were staying recommended this place. Friendly pub, good service and hearty food. I enjoyed the steak and black pudding pie. Good local beers too. Excellent value and we will definitely visit again if in the area.

Landlord and staff were always very friendly and welcoming which gives the pub a nice atmosphere. Along with good beer and good value food it had all we were after from a pub. Would highly recommend and will visit again next time i'm in the area.

Beer quality was good and reasonably priced. Food was also great tasting and worth the walk from Coniston centre if that's your starting point. Negatives would be a warm interior and limited no. Of outdoor tables/seats

very comfortable and cozy liitle pub on the outskirts of Coniston Village, on the Torver road. beers are very good as is the food. the barman while we were visiting was a cheeky Geordie so we felt at home, "Bonnie Lad" we will visit again next time we're in Coniston, definitely.

We arrived 8.10 and was told we could order food if quick. The sign clearly says 8.45 last orders for food! We ordered quickly and our food arrived in no time as it was quite empty. The food was good and the pizza was very good. For the price its a good stop but not sure what it would be... More
