Great food and excellent, friendly staff

We came here for the daughter's 21st meal, followed by a run up Gummer's How! Lovely food, great building (nicely "done" inside) and attentive and friendly staff. It's years we have been and has been up and down in the past- definitely on an "up" at the moment.

The staff at this restaurant were very accommodating, as we had already made a booking, which we were no longer able to make (as we got lost- long story). So had to contact them and change the time of the booking very last minute. On arrival the staff were great, made us feel at home. This restaurant had a lovely... More

This restaurant will forever be known to us as the place where we got the best beer-battered onion rings ever. We ate here twice and I made the 'mistake' of having a starter on the first night. The mushrooms were an absolute delight, may I add, and my main course of Shepherd's Pie was amazing but the portion sizes were... More

Very nice old country pub. The food is excellent, good British country food. My only problem was that there is not much choice on the menu for people who do not drink alcohol. Don't the British drink enough that they have to put it into their meals now? Fish and chips with Beer batter. Hot pot with with Ale. Even... More

Thank you for your lovely review, I am so pleased you enjoyed your meal with us. I'm sorry you felt there wasn't much choice on the menu for you. We do only serve 2 dishes out of 12 that contain alcohol, our beef and ale pie and our beer battered fish and chips and we would have with pleasure done... More

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 Sunday... 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

Ate here on a recent short break to the Lakes. Had read reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The pub had a cosy / local feel to it. 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
