First time we've taken any notice of a local paper review - but they were absolutely right to praise this place. Seems to have recently been taken on and improved by a new family team, with a focus on good service and great cooking.
the menu is nicely varied with modern takes on traditional pub food and offers more imaginative options than most for veggie diets. Prices were fair for the area - around £12-£15 for excellent main courses - best pub food in the area by far. (The Sun in Kirkby Lonsdale comes close but does get hectic at busy times). We find many places in the lakes fail to cook everything well (often, side orders/veg is inedible - perhaps left to junior staff?) - but they ensured everything was spot on before serving.
Have thought about going back every day since we visited recently and will be doing so this week. Pub rooms are simply and smartly decorated - the dining room looks very nice too.
