“Nice post walk food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed at a local campsite for a walking weekend and having run the Russian Roulette on the busy and quick road to get to the pub we were disappointed. Two good guest ales, a nice selected on the menu and the dog was welcome too.

We ate over two nights, steak the first night and I had lamb shoulder the second. Whilst not Michelin star quality, it was good, tasty hearty food priced just above standard pub grub.

The decor is typical village pub although I didnt see a roaring fire which would have been nice (it wasnt particularly cold outside but its always nice to see). Considering Crook is a tiny hamlet, the place was really busy on both nights, especially the Saturday.

There are some seats outside but it was dark when we arrived so these were used although as they are close to the road and with some cars driving past at quite a pace, im not sure how pleasant that would be in the height of summer.

If I return to that part of the lakes, I will most definitely return.

“Lovely little pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent meal here. The staff were very friendly and efficient, and the food was really good. We would visit again when in the area.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Super tasty food, good wine and amazing service from Lauren who single handed lay manned (or should it be womanned) the bar, took meal orders,served the meals, took payments, all with a sunny cheerful disposition. Thanks Lauren and thanks to the chef for delicious lamb, venison and duck meals..

“Wonderful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I don't know how good the food used to be here, but if it has gone downhill as per a couple of recent reviews then i'm really sorry that i missed it before. the steak was quite possibly the nicest i've had in this country. the service was nothing special, but it was certainly nothing to complain about.

Simple honest pub where the concentration is quality and value. Straight forward choices, yet enough variety and generous portions making value excellent. Fresh and local produce, pleasant and unfussy staff
