My husband and I have just returned from our 2 night stay at the Cuckoo Brow Inn. We had a fab time. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was extremely clean and had recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The bed was very comfy and there was a great flat screen TV, tea and coffee facilities and a very modern bathroom with excellent shower. The room faced onto the road but we weren't bothered by any road noise as the windows were double glazed and the road not that busy anyway.
The breakfasts were very good - tasty full Cumbrian breakfast (our diet starts tomorrow!!!). There was also a choice of fruit juice and cereal, and on one of the mornings some yoghurt and fruit but this was not consistent on both days and the fruit was not regularly replenished which was a little disappointing. All in all though, a great breakfast - we could not fault it. High quality products used (great cumerland sausages) and all very fresh.
We ate in the restaurant both nights. Wine and beer prices are a little on the expensive side (slightly more than we are used to paying on average in London) and the food was 'gastro pub prices' so also a little on the expensive side but very very good quality and well worth the extra few pounds. My husband had haddock and fish which was delicious and I had the home made pie of the day which was excellent. On the second night, my husband had the home made burger and I had the lasagne both of which were good but both were covered in a little too much cheese.
A great stay - lovely staff - will definitel return!!
