A Beautiful farm barn conversation on the edge of the National Park serving great British pub food. locally sourced and home made always served along with seasonal specials. A large 80 seater bar area with real log fire or a tastefully decorated restaurant for more cosy dining there's even a function suite available too. Just on the coast road towards Bardsea.

A good family venue

With a big age range in our party we all enjoyed a great variety of food. As a big party we had pre booked our food but once we were settled with drinks the food was promptly served. There is a large menu and we all enjoyed our choices. I particularly enjoyed my Cajun Chicken with French fries... read more

Choice of food was good( including the vegetarian option which can often be lacking)We all really enjoyed our meals managed a starter but no room for dessert. Cant wait to visit... More

Great quality food and service to match. Be warned, the portions are huge! No need for a starter and unfortunately we had no room for dessert! Dogs are very welcome in the pub section where a full menu is served.

Absolutely fantastic. Good value for money. Very attentive but not to intrusive staff. Nice Deco. I am a chef myself and can be very pretentious about food so I do struggle to find a eating establishment that I would happily go back too. But after visiting the old farmhouse I will be returning with all right boxes being ticked.

Myself and my family called in here yesterday on the way to visit relatives. We had never heard of the place but we're very hungry so thought we would give it a go. The place looks nothing special from outside but once inside you get the feel for what it was originally. We asked about the food etc and were... More

We didn't feel welcome at all, I think most of the staff had post Christmas blues, our main waitress was stern and miserable, no-one asked if our food was ok and it took forever to have our table cleared, the desert menu and the bill at the end had to be asked for, the place wasn't even that busy, the...
