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

After a long morning of touring we really wanted to find a nice classic comfortable restaurant and we stumbled across the Horse and Farrier. Excellent serendipity. A beautiful, WORKING, old fireplace, delicious tomato soup and perfect fish and chips, and we were reinvigorated. Highly recommended if you can find it.

Stopped on the way to Borrowdale having seen the 18th century sign. Very small inside with a huge range and roaring fire. There is a larger family room at the back. The landlady appears to do everything single handed and was very friendly and efficient. The food arrived promptly and was freshly cooked and delicious. We would make a point... More
