Friendly Pub

A group of us stayed nearby for some mountain biking and were really impressed with the friendly atmosphere, warm fire and good effort to provide gluten free options for one of our group - great place, we'll be back in the summer!

We stayed nearby and visited the pub on three evenings. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we particularly enjoyed their music evening when locals came and played instruments and sang. Great fun! The food was served quickly and was traditional pub food with huge portions.Comfortable with log fire. Philip was very good humoured and attentive.

For the last holiday of the year, we, of course, stayed at the usual Crake Valley Site This is only a couple of miles from The Red Lion, so we called in most nights to see all our local friends. Steve and Lucy were unfortunately away on holiday, but we were looked after by the very professional Philip. As usual,... More

Very Enjoyable. Stayed here for over two weeks when working in the area in July. Pleasant pub with friendly and attentive staff. Steve & his wife are making a great attempt at maintaining a village pub atmosphere with a music evening & friendly locals. Used 2 of the 3 rooms which were both comfortable & adequate when working away. Always... More

Traditional pub in the middle of nowhere - great stop in the middle of the day to replenish energy levels. Not too busy.

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
