Ate at the String of Horses and had a first class meal. Locally sourced top qualify food cooked to perfection. Very friendly couple and lovely young team helping. Don't come if you are not really hungry - portions very large.

A nice welcome and a varied menu with a latin influence. Plenty of variety including veggie options and daily specials. Plenty of parking and within about 15 minutes of Carlisle.

The drink is reasonably priced and the menu is also a bit different, with a nod to Spanish/North African cuisine. Perhaps a little expensive for the standard (which is good but not exceptional) and presentation could be more interesting. Members of staff very pleasant.

You are rather a captive audience if staying at the Inn and sometimes as we know this can be a very bad thing......however prices were great value, food excellent, good choices and a special of the day board....very worthwhile and nice 17th century beamed pub setting too
