Food and atmosphere were good but not special as we had been led to believe from their local reputation and in the context of their slight premium price point over local competitors. One dish arrived at the table very obviously undercooked - pink chicken ! The staff courtesy and efficiently rectified this problem to our satisfaction.

What a great place....friendly from the minute we booked. (Which is recommended) the bar is small but a lovely seating area outside if the weather is ok! The meal itself was fantastic....good choice with some excellent specials. The quality was first class throughout including the kids menu which was flexible enough to accommodate the fussy kids! Not cheap but you... More

A very convenient stopover near Penrith and the M6 if going to or from Scotland. We had a small but well appointed room, an excellent dinner with most produce coming from the Lowther Estate and a good breakfast.

We wanted Sunday lunch while travelling around the area and heard the G&D did good grub. Thought we would give it a go. First time diners here. Very formal reception area on entering - bit like a hotel (they do have rooms as well). Bar on the right eating area on the left. Although busy, we were able to get... More

Good points - The Barman, guy who served breakfast and the guy on check in were all a pleasure to deal with. Really helpful and went above and beyond. Room 5 - really nice although you need to do something about those pumped loo's - I know its old etc but you could sort that out. Breakfast was superb. Bad... More

Fantastic menu with a great selection of local produce, I had the cheese soufflé which for any cheese lover is a must. For main I tried the lamb which... More
