Was impressed with the fresh new look, definitely has the potential for a great dining venue. Sadly food was just OK - starter of Belly Pork was again just OK for the price, presentation was poor, although pork itself was quite good, the bread roll on the plate felt like it come from a frozen bag (in fact more than...

Unfortunately not very impressed. The place has been nicely decorated and looks new and bright. However I found the food to be quite average, and actually quite expensive for the portion size too. Some of the menu was off, some was different to what was printed, and the food that did come was rather bland.

As a group of ten, we booked the White Mare for an evening meal. The service was excellent, friendly and welcoming, to be followed by a three course meal which was there to match the service. I thoroughly recommend this little oasis in the heart of Cumbria.

The service was reasonable, the tray of drinks that crashed to the floor by our table was unfortunate. When the food eventually arrived it was evident that whoever had prepared the food was not a chef. The steak pie was a cold congealed mess and half the filling consisted of large wet flat mushrooms. This was accompanied by cold lumpy... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. The pub looks amazing after its refurbishment. Staff were friendly, if a little unsure of what to do, but I guess a lot of them are new, and everybody needs to learn on the job. The menu looked good - I am a vegetarian, and was so pleased to see Vegetarian Sunday lunch as one of... More

A quick lunch was our reason for visiting, the newly refurbished pub & restaurant look very good indeed. Keeping with the traditional look and feel, a modern fresh twist has been worked in very well indeed. A black pudding scotch egg was the starter I went for. A half was presented with salad. The 'egg' was very good quality and... More
