We ate diner here on the 2nd night of our Lady Anne’s Way walk. Steak and Ale pie constituted of a beef stew and a puff pastry lid and base. Not particularly tasty but okay and filled a hole. We had to check if they were still serving at 8pm on a Thursday evening which maybe should have hinted... read more

Friendly pub, which we visited twice during our short stays in Kirkby Stephen. The first night we ate there and enjoyed our meal. Services was excellent, good size portion, leaving room for another well kept beer without feeling bloated. Cheers!

I visited this pub a couple of years ago when it was a typical country pub with friendly staff. When I last visited this place on 23rd February 2015 it had been altered, but not for the better. It was not comfortable, and the staff did not have a clue what they were doing. I will not be going back.

We each had a prawn sandwich with salad and crisps and shared a bowl of chips today. The brown bread was lovely and fresh as was the salad and the chips were beautiful. Went down very well with a bottle of wine and total price was £25. Surroundings were nice in the restaurant side of the pub and staff were... More

We had our lunch here on our first day, ordered hot baguettes. These were excellent and so filling and very good value for money. The barman was very friendly and polite.

Very small meal for hikers. Extremely noisy. Slow service and very small prawns on the plate. Wished we had gone to the Mango Tree like it was recommended to us. Just other people in our party had already booked the Kings Arms.

We visited this pub three times during our weeks stay and enjoyed all three meals. The service was friendly and quick at all points in time and the food was very good. Some lovely soups on offer (such as hot and spicy broccoli soup - it was great), super home-made chips, good cuts of meat, nice pasta dishes and some... More

Stopped over at Kirkby Stephen for some lunch on the way back up from the South Lakes safari zoo. As it's a about half way it breaks the journey nicely. We looked at a few menus around other pubs and this seemed to be one of the cheapest for main courses. We ate in the dining room in a very... More

We've driven past so many times as we cut the corner off between the A66 and the M6, but this Sunday we decided to stop for lunch. The staff were friendly and the menu was reasonably varied for a Sunday lunch time. We stuck to the traditional roast and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. It was priced at £8.95 which was... More

Called in for lunch with our two Jack Russells. First plus point is dog friendly in the very comfortable Snug - good start. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was both efficent and quick. I had the steak and ale pie and my wife the fish, both with chips which were cooked to perfection - crisp outside and...
