A good location as it is only a short distance from the motorway if you are travelling right across the country, as we were. It is a character pub with really nice rooms, in a lovely village on the edge of the Lake District. Tarzan pictures abound because of the Greystoke connection - but no photo of Christopher Lambert, I was sad to note! We enjoyed a very good evening meal here, after a beautiful drive over the Kirkstone Pass. All the staff are very friendly and dogs are welcome - which makes a lot of difference to us. There are seats outside at the front and a large garden at the back too. We enjoyed our breakfast, and we reckon we will be back next year..
