Stayed for one week in the Mews and had a great time.
Accommodation was very well appointed and catered for all needs.
Although self-catering we ate mainly in the Inn, choosing from the regular or daily specials menu. The meals (ingredients from local suppliers) offered very generous portions and were good value.
Three courses if you want plus bread and olives. Good choice of breakfast too.
For ale drinkers the Inn had a choice of four available at any time, all from local brewers. Two regular ‘house’ ales (Bluebird XB and Loweswater Gold) plus two ‘guest’ ales. Try Ulverston’s Fra Diavolo if you can.
The Inn has a ‘pub’ bit and a restaurant. It can get busy especially at weekends so it would be wise to enquire about booking a table if you specifically need the restaurant.
None of this would work without the staff, multitasking their way about the place with a smile and some cheery and cheeky banter.
Special thanks to Kathy, Katie, Natasha and Andrew for enabling our visit to be an enjoyable one.
Thanks also to the lads in the kitchen whose efforts were greatly appreciated,
