Fab bar man

The bar man here makes this place. I think he lives some of the time in Newcastle? He's helpful and chatty and smiley. Just what you need after a massive walk. I have to say though that the chilli we had was poor. It tasted of packet mix. I struggled to eat it and I was hungry. Maybe other... read more

Nice decor and pleasant staff but £3.20 for a pint of draught COKE is far toooo pricey!!!!!!! Won't be going back.

We booked here based on a recommendation from a close friend but unfortunately we were very disappointed. We were rushed to order, the food was very basic and some of it had definitely been microwaved. Fiancé ordered steak medium rare and it came well done and was very dry and chewy. We ordered bread and butter pudding with custard for... More

Steak and ale pie was superb the meat just fell apart. Rich thick gravy and a top crust, best pie ever.

We've stayed locally for a week and called several times at lunchtime for a quickie- like you do- the called for tea one night. We called on Monday evening thinking it'd be quiet but it was really busy. Great service, lovely atmosphere. My steak was not the best but the chips were perfection - the wine went down well too...

Called in of a lunchtime for a light bite! Really friendly and helpful staff, place to bring the dig in as well and also plenty of room outside. We all had a sandwich off the menu which arrived with crisps and plenty of salad. Really well presented. Parking available opposite, really would recommend a visit.

Food was excellent with choices from sandwiches to some fairly up market mains, good choice of wine, prices reasonable, quaint and authentic feeling. Excellent service too. Well worth the ride from Keswick.

Prices here are more reasonable, with Jennings bitter £3.30 and much better than the Theakstons at the Salutation Inn.

I stayed in Threlkeld recently as part of a group on a walking trip. We didn't fancy cooking in the evenings so went to the Horse and Farrier instead. They have a range of usual pub food, and the food that we chose was all cooked extremely well. The portions are huge - I wouldn't have been upset at having... More
