Lovely evening meal

We come here in our Motorhome quite a lot. However we haven't been in years, so we suggested it as our first stop in the Lakes to our friends. Pleased to see nothing has changed. The food was lovely (chips slightly underdone but heho). The chicken, ham and leak pie was amazing and everyone else... read more

An oldie world pub that does excellent food, the night we visited was pie night, you can not fault the quantity of meat that there is in their pies and they taste very good as well. Noisy locals but very friendly and a good atmosphere.

We called in having seen the sign for the main road. It was more or less exactly what we expected - unpretentious food, reasonable beer in local-pub surroundings.

We decided after wondering about this 18th century inn many times in the passing to have sunday lunch there, We wonder no more the food was awful and sitting in the main dining room was a freezing experience ,but it was the food that shocked most .....£18 for a mixed grill was expensive but for pub grub it was extortionate...

Saw the sign of the 18th Century Pub and decided to give it a go. Unfortunately we were a bit disapointed as we were expecting a nice old feeling quirky pub but this place seemed to lack that and to me just seemed a little shab. Unfortunately I wasn't too taken with the food either, I had the scampi and... More

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was charming and rustic. We didn't have a reservation, but they were kind enough to squeeze us in anyway.

Very quaint Inn in Dacra, half way on one of the walks. Beautiful little village and this pub is very old. Restaurant part looked good and the menu board but we just had a drink there. Might call there again for a meal.

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.
