My favourite pub in The Lakes.

I hate to say how long I've been going to this pub, but safe to say that I was a young teenager when my dear old Mum discovered it when we were visiting an old book shop in the late 1970's. The blazing fire is really welcoming, and due to the perpetual rain it is on an awful lot of... read more

A fantastic pub whether looking for food or just a drink. A very old building with historic interest, wonderful staff, lovely food and a great atmosphere. Not a massive choice on the menu but the dishes we had were really delicious. We loved the decor, and the humourous signage etc. A really lovely pub grub dining experience with exceptional staff....

Very popular pub, for drinking and also serving food. Doesn't take bookings for food & last food orders at 7.45pm. When we arrived at around 7.15pm on Sat evening it was completely full. Quite rowdy, so maybe it's more of a drinking pub in the evenings.

We popped in for a light lunch to escape the rain and got a good selection of nibbles for our table. The service was very quick and we enjoyed the food a lot. Particularly the nachos!
