Stayed locally and ate at hotel twice in last week once for lunch and because this was so good went for dinner a few days later.
Bar staff and waitresses all particularly welcoming and attentive. Menu reasonable and excellent portions. Food tasty and this would have been a four or possibly five star review if the following issue hadn't been witnessed. When paying a call of nature before leaving, I was washing my hands when the chef came out of the toilet cubicle and instead of washing his hands walked straight out of the toilets and back to the kitchen. To think that we had just eaten a meal prepared by him made me feel ill, and goodness knows what a health inspector would have made of it. As we had already paid, decided to let matter rest, however, the more I thought of the matter, the more appalled I felt.
Basic cleanliness should be a given in any establishment and I would hope that this was a one off incident.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tranquil haven set in the beautiful location of Shap only minutes away from Junction 39 on M6. This fabulous hostelry dates back hundreds of years and being situated on the old A6, was the main road from London to Scotland. Travellers would take their rest for themselves and their horses. Fabulous food served all day, 7 days a week. Also makes a great alternative to the service stations on the motorway. Situated on the famous coast to coast walking route so also a great resting place for walkers. Well behaved pets also welcome, but not permitted in the restaurant. FREE WI FI, Award Wining Real Ales and a great selection of wines. A warm welcome awaits. ... more less
