Quiet and very friendly pub, I stayed one night b&b recently. Got chatting to the friendly locals. Food was usual pub gayer, excellent beer, this is a traditional quiet place and very authentic.

While on a Stagg do in the lakes last week, we found ourselves on Saturday night in need of something to eat. After a couple of negative responses from other establishments, when we called the Red Lion and asked if 14 of us could role up at short notice for food we weren't very hopeful. The Landlord said he was... More

My wife and I recently spent the night at the Red Lion on our way up to Wasdale for the weekend. It was exactly what we wanted. Our room was lovely with a great view over the fells from our window, and a nice modern bathroom too. The food in the bar was fantastic and both my Lasagne and my... More

We started by meeting at the Red Lion for lunch on the Saturday and enjoyed proper pub food done well and a really warm welcome from Steve the landlord - I enjoyed some fantastic Whitby scampi and chips and there was a...

We have just returned from a visit to the lakes on what turned out to be a beautiful Easter break. We popped in to The Red Lion on Good Friday for a lunchtime pint and sandwich whilst we waited for our cottage check in time. Great pub and friendly staff who were very welcoming to a somewhat rowdy and excitable... More

The Red Lion has a nice atmosphere, friendly staff and locals, and excellent food. Sadly, being located in something of a backwater, it seems to lack sufficient regular diners. As a result it's superb Sunday Roasts are no longer available. Fortunately, it's a la carte menu offers a good choice of tasty, competitively priced dishes which are cooked to order.... More

I have stopped in the pub and stayed over night on a number of occasions and I have found the food, drink and hospitality to be excellent. However I read with interest the Trip Advisor comment of the 24th August 2013 and I find a number of the comments to distort the facts as I was sat at the table... More

Reserved a table and things went done fro here. The food was mediocre at best - one daughter had burnt pizza, the other dreadful lasagne, absolutely shocking, I had overdone ribs with no salad or veg, my friends meals were no better. When I asked for the bill I was overcharged by £30 - the staff then refused to believe... More
