We were on our way home after after a fantastic week in the Lakes. It was a last minute decision to go for dinner and put off going home!!. We were aware of the Horse and Farrier but hadn't been. When we got there we were immediately impressed by the interior dark, olde world and welcoming. We noticed reserved on... More

Nestled at the foot of Blencathra it would be easy to assume that this is a lovely traditional Lakeland pub, oak beams,stone floor, and it is and so much more. Four of had lunch here to celebrate a wedding anniversary, the menu is extensive and sophisticated, of high end restaurant standard served by excellent attentive staff. Three of us chose... More

Such a find we found this Inn via a Good Pub Guide whilst on a short break we ate here on two nights as the Food & Service couldnt be faulted. Lovely Staff who were very helpful and so friendly we loved the atmosphere and the open Fire was very welcome at the end of a busy walking day. The... More

Arrived and was excited to taste some good food, my meal was ok but my young daughters burger was pink on the inside, raw meat to a three year old is not good, informed the staff, got no apology and then they tried to charge me for that meal, won't be going there again.

We were staying for a weel in Threlkeld and ended up dining here three times. None of our visits disappointed and had some excellent food, beer and good selection of wine. Very popular at the weekend so probably worth bookinf a table for peak times. I had the sea bass with scallops and was one of the nicest meals I... More

We had Sunday lunch to celebrate a birthday. We have visited a couple of times and were very pleased on these two occasions however on this occasion we were less than impressed. I appreciate it was busy but nobody asked us if we were enjoying our meal or if we had enjoyed our meal. I had Turkey and it was... More

Despite being very regular visitors to the Lake District for the past 20+ years, we'd never actually been to this pub. We put it right this time and called in for lunch. Dog friendly in the bar, our Collie was allowed (if not made particularly welcome!). Good menu - we went for the very reasonably priced 2courses for £6.95 and... More
