So good we ate here twice in a week!!

If you are in the lake district, you have to go to this pub for food. It is unpretentious, great, home cooking. We went originally on a Sunday, and the value was just amazing. Three courses for less than £20 off the Sunday lunch menu!! I have paid at least twice as much as that in some places for... read more

Went here with family whilst staying at the Damsen DeneHotel. It is off the beaten track, but well worth the visit. There were four of us and we had a fantastic meal. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the fish had a very light tempura batter and the mushroom and chesse starters were amazing. The staff were all amazing and... More

'No problem' seems to be the pubs motto as because every request you make seems to get answered by this! ( other pubs please take note).The welcome was very friendly and the food on the whole was well above pub grub. The place has a lovely feel about it and seemed spotlessly clean. Our only small gripe was that by... More

The food was very tasty and well presented. We had the Fish Terrine to start then Fish and Chips and the Ale pie. The... More

Of course, the fact that when we arrived to candlelight and took a while to clue in that they were not trying for romantic ambiance but were experiencing a power outage didn't hurt. They cheerfully informed us we could drink, but would have to wait before they could promise meal service. Luckily, the power came on 10 minutes later and... More

The outside of the pub doesnt look much so we might have gone past it if we hadnt seen reviews on Trip Advisor. But the inside is lovely,still traditional but recently updated so everything... More

Sharing vegetables with other people at the table it is not to my taste. When I go out to eat, i like to be served my portions separately! Also the amount was very poor! Disappointed!!
