We enjoyed a lovely meal here as a family group early on a Saturday evening. The service was friendly and helpful and there was a reasonable atmosphere for 5pm. There was a good selection of meals on the menu and also a number of daily specials. The food was good quality and portion size. Our only comment was that there... More

Just got back today we were in a party of 6 and stayed in the cottage next door. All the reviews are spot on warm and friendly greeting, very good food compliments to the chef, all the staff were really friendly and helpful. The cottage itself was very good value and clean. Overall an excellent find and can not wait... More

Really enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. I needed such good food after a long hillwalk today. Had the lamb followed by sticky toffee pudding.

Well a table set for 4 changed to 3 but nonetheless a lovely night was had. An early seating and surrounded by other diners, we were immediately welcomed and ushered to our seats to begin our evening. The staff were very funny, attentive and always able to see our needs. I have to stay I wasn't thrilled by the food... More

Family holiday (plus a dog!) in the Lakes, stayed in Threlkeld village, short walk to Horse & Farrier Inn (dog friendly), food and service was fantastic, enjoyed it so much we went back again! Can't be faulted, great service, good size meals and all at a reasonable price. 100% recommend this pub, old, cosy, great atmosphere.. I will go there... More

Walk from Keswick to here via the old railway track, have Sunday lunch and walk back. We've done this many times and have never been disappointed in the oodles, ale or service. Deservedly popular, surprised to see a couple of negative reviews.

On arrival disapointed, room was cramped, 2 singles squeezed in although I had a standard double booked. Bathroom - Ha !, very small shower, couldn't sit on the toilet straight as a radiator was in the way (Sure that's against building regulations). One bed was restricting the opening of the "bathroom" door. Floorboards were loose and noisy. TV didn't work... More

Best Full English breakfast I've ever had, putting the chain hotels that I normally stay at to shame. Sausages and bacon were thick, juicy and tasty, egg poached to perfection.
