A room of two halves

Nice big room (room 7) with plenty of furniture, seating and space. Good evening meal and enjoyed one of the in-house beers. Room faced the busy main road at the front and the bed was quite hard. Chickens outside, a dog wondering about reception and a parrot in a cage, but no real issue for me even... read more

Good choice of food in the evening and was delicious, breakfast... More

I cannot believe what that last comment about this hotel being smelly is about. I stayed there last week due to work and I could not smell any dogs or parrots !! There are dogs and a parrot but are kept clean and tidy and do not bother anyone. The room I stayed in (room 7) was newly decorated and... More

The owners try hard, but someone has to tell them this place stinks. There is a smell of parrot, dogs, and dog food as you enter the reception and bar. Make sure you close the door behind you checking the chickens have not followed you in.

My husband and I arrived late Monday night and they kept the kitchen open just for us. I ordered the old fashioned liver, bacon and onions over mash. The hubby had sirloin steak with chips. Best food we've had in Cumbria! Twice cooked chips and a steak you could cut with a butter knife just to his liking. The Landlady... More
