“Off the beaten path, but well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Good ales and ciders; good selection of afternoon snacks/sandwiches; great views. Like much of Lakes District, single track road, but the views and pub are worth the trip.

“Great food and a warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Popped in for lunch and was so impressed went back for an evening meal a few nights later. The food was amazing, not your run of mill ping ping pub food and the staff were all helpful and attentive at all times.

“Wonderful location, food and real ale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The food was well above normal pub levels, and the range of beer is fantastic. With the deal on a third night it is very good value for money and we will be returning for the food and drink and hopefully another stay

“Excellent Lunch Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Lovely place to stop for lunch in beautiful valley. If you can sit outside on a sunny day its wonderful and cosy inside in winter when the fire is going. The lunch is slightly expensive but tasty, I had the special bacon and brie ciabata with side salad and crisps slightly dear at £ 7.45 and the beer was well kept.We walked from Hawkshead Hill and it is an excellent halfway stop.

“Wonderful Pub Grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Possibly our favourite place for lunch on a walk in the pretty and relatively quiet Little Langdale. Great food.
