As always one can only review a spot as one finds it. Sue and I have driven past many time in the last 30 years or so and always said we should go in as it always looked nice from the outside and busy. We finally visited mid-August despite the nice summer it was cold and wet. As usual there... More

If you are looking for very high end cuisine then this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a really genuine pub, serving lovely food then you will be at the right place. We have driven through Dacre hundreds of times when visiting the Lakes but never stopped until recently. On the way past heading... More

Called here having passed the pub years ago thinking they called something else. Friendly welcome from Swedish barmaid. Good choice of ales in old rustic pub. We ordered food. I chose chicken in paprika with cream and chips. My wife chose lasagne. We sat outside which was pleasant but could do with a day getting rid of the weeds. Our... More

I dropped in for a drink during a walk and loved the atmosphere. Suzie was behind the bar serving superb beer. So called back the following night and we had the pie chips and peas, one pork and apple and the other was chicken etc. the chips were to die for. Suzie brought her dogs down when we were leaving,...

We came across this place on our way home from holiday in Scotland, and just turned down a road befor we hit the motorway. The pub was lovely and the food was excellent. My daughter was fascinated by the dogs who wanted to sit in her hair when she went to the toilet. Friendly staff, good beer, and have a... More

We stayed here with 2 dogs and our 6 month old baby. The staff were great and really helpful - especially at mealtimes. The bar is really dog-friendly, however doesn't have that 'dog smell' that some places suffer from...! Our room was clean and tidy with a beautiful view. I felt the bathroom was small (the baby bath didn't fit!)... More

Dacre is a far cry from honeypot villages like Pooley Bridge. What a perfect and peaceful backwater this is, with an ancient castle, fascinating church (with four stone bears in the churchyard and a stained glass window to First Viscount William Whitelaw the Home Secretary, Deputy Prime Minister and first Northern Ireland Secretary in 1972). And then there's the Horse... More

It was lashing it down outside, we were muddy, cold, hungry, wet and accompanied by a damp, cheerful and sometimes over friendly large young dog. Yet the Horse and Farrier welcomed us with open arms and their Landlord terrier said a yappy hello as well! We gulped mugs of hot tea, drank a good pint or two of the local... More
