Charming pub

Relaxed pub in the middle of a beautiful village. Humble inside and a limited menu, but the food was lovely. Some really nice staff and people inside who were happy to chat. A great getaway from the rain outside. Really nice views in nice weather from the back.

Food was nice, pleasant service. Gorgeous original fireplace. The outside area and main bar could do with some TLC.

Very nice! We stayed in the cottage next door! Had a nice steak and fish and chips. Very dog friendly, cooked our dog a sausage :) . Friendly and welcoming staff! I would recommend a visit if you are in the area, also a 15/20mins drive from Glenridding. Free parking opposite.

Ate here on Tuesday evening. The people were very welcoming and friendly and they allow dogs in the bar area. However the menu was limited. The portions were large and the food was ok.

Seeing a sign for 18th Century Inn we thought we would explore!! Walked in and welcomed by the staff. So far so good!!! My wife fancied a PImms. Sorry we don't sell Pimms. Oh really!! I wanted a nice pint of real ale. Choose one of the two on display, and asked if I could try a sample first. No... More

We needed a meal late on a Sunday evening and appreciated a decent menu at this pub. The restaurant had pleasant views over the countryside. The local beer was good and the food was okay but not very special and the table in the restaurant was not clean. However the service was friendly and the bar staff helpful.

Went to the Horse and Farrier Inn for my husbands birthday tea, we had been recommended it as a good place to eat, and it looks great from the outside, a real old traditional pub, just what we love, however once inside we were really disappointed, The bar area was not to bad but the restaurant area was laid out...

Like othe reviewers we followed the big brown tourist sign to find this pub. Cumbria council does seem to put them out randomly! The pub itself is lovely, but the atmosphere is somewhat lacking. The food was ok. Two of us had the Lebanese pie (spinach and cheese with filo pastry) and the other a curry. As a vegetarian the... More
