Usually stop here when staying in the Dales and it never disappoints. The staff are friendly and very efficient and the food is excellent, especially the lamb. The Inn is also in the middle of some spectacular scenery. Looking forward to the next visit.

The Fat Lamb is an unpretentious, comfortable and welcoming country inn. As a wheelchair user I explained my particular needs at the time of booking, and found the facilities entirely satisfactory (which is not always the case when booking hotels). The room was comfortable and clean, the food was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The location provided... More

Interesting ancient roadside inn in a lonely stretch of countryside. Excellent service; good ambience; intelligent management; first class food quickly served on hot plates; and real ale at sensible prices. Well worth a visit.

Called in on way home from the lakes having googled places to eat around Kirkby Stephens, excellent decision I had the Lamb (outstanding) and my partner had the beef food and service was top notch! Will definitely call in again when over this area!

Just had a lovely two nights stay at the Fat Lamb. The room was a good size and beautifully clean. The food was excellent and the staff really helpful and friendly. The location was perfect with stunning views and beautifully peaceful after touring around. Also perfect for visiting the Lakes and the Dales.

Stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend as we visited cumbria and the lake district. The B&B was so lovely - decorated to feel like a real country-esque inn which made it feel like a real escape. The owners were very nice and welcoming. The rooms were clean and cosy. Only thing I would say is that the toilet... More

Stayed last weekend after finding this restaurant through Britstops. We were made to feel very welcome including our dogs . Food, drinks and service was great . The staff gave us a map of the nature reserve walk which was great for the dogs . The only negative was the weather. Will definitely visit again . Thank you

Highly recommended to us whilst holidaying in the Eden Valley. Booked a table in the dining room for a special meal on our last evening. Priority was clearly given to customers coming to eat in the 'bar' area which was very busy and we had to wait almost an hour to be served with our food in the large dining... More
