We visited as this was my mums favourite place for eating in the lakes. We had a party of 9 adults and 5 kids. As you are unable to book ahead we turned up but were told they couldn’t accommodate us. Despite this, there was a table of 10 sitting getting served and more people were arriving and not getting turned away. Tried to book for the following day for Sunday lunch which is served 12-4 but were told they could only serve us at 12 and no later. Completely unaccommodating. We took our business elsewhere.

We loved the location at the end of some great hill walks, the very warm and friendly welcome from Chris and the excellent food and drink. And thank you Chris for organising our taxi back to the camp site.

Fifth time visiting after driving along hair-raising roads to get there!! One of the best inns in the Lakes, it is simply a great quirky pub in a jaw-dropping location. Food is very good, great staff, lovely old pub suitably decorated for its age. Good ales, hot chocolates to keep younger family members happy. Choice of hot meals, sandwiches etc but not served all day so time your lunches here. No wifi, so pre-warn technology junkies!!! A great pub in an incredible setting.

Just visited this place over the bank holiday.What a little gem of a place.Decided to go out for a drive over the Kirkstone pass.We knew there was a pub on the way through.It was a glorious day.Pleny of people sat out,walkers and motor cyclists.The lunch we had was lovely and the service good too.The scenery up there is outstanding.Wouldn't mind staying over for a night as it looks quite cosy.I would recommend a stop off if your ever passing through.

Visited here for the weekend for an Anniversary treat. A lovely 4 poster room which was massive, a slightly small shower for the size of the room , but still nice and very clean . The homemade food was gorgeous. Ate here for the 2 nights we stayed. Reasonable priced drinks with very friendly staff . Will definitely return
