My daughters bought my wife and I a groupon for my 70th birthday. Very pleasant location, nice choice of walks from the door, with onsite nature reserve. Rooms what you would expect from an old coaching inn, reasonable menu and choice of ales.Overall very enjoyable

What a splendid environment in which to spend our last evening in the area. Food was freshly prepared, accompanied by seasonal vegetables, perfectly presented and flavours subtle and complimentary to the lamb and the fish. The homemade desserts were irresistible! All members of staff were cheerful, friendly, courteous and helpful.

Have eaten here on a number of occasions. Sunday lunch by far the best value and good food too, however one time we had two orders of the vegetarian risotto as a main meal. One was for a hungry man and the portion size was dismal and was like a starter and certainly not worth the money. Today I had... More

Honest to goodness country inn, well appointed, great food. Comfortable enough room apart from a squeaky bed and a very small TV. Bonus is the setting, a way away from Kirkby Stephen in the middle of open countryside with a nature reserve at the back. Nice to see that dogs were welcome. Classic cars meet there occasionally too. our room... More

We ate here two evenings in a row, as our B&B was within walking distance, and we'd enjoyed our first meal enough to go back the next evening. The food was good, and there was more than one veggie choice, so we were able to eat different meals on each visit. The young lady serving us was very cheerful and... More

After a very pleasant day at the Sedbergh house we decided to steal enough money out of Mum's purse to entertain the four of us out for tea - and chose the Fat Lamb. Arrived at 19:30 and were immediately shown to our table in the comfortable restaurant. Decided against starters and went straight to mains. A coconut chicken curry,... More

I have had better Sunday dinners , the meat was very tasty but the roast potatoes and veg needed some more seasoning.It was very fairly priced.but we did not stay for pudding. The staff were very friendly and polite.

Good afternoon Jack, Thank you for your positive review. I apologise if we did not meet your expectations on this occasion with the vegetables not being quite as tasty as the meat. We probably do err towards mildly seasoning our vegetables so that they are not over-powering for those with milder tastes. Our chefs cook everything from fresh and are... More

We have only eaten at the Fat Lamb before, never having stayed there as we only live some 20 minutes drive away ! It has however been quite some time since we last enjoyed a meal there.
