Visited here several times when in Lakes. We need gluten free options as coeliacs in family. Went there and checked if still have GF options to be told that the only thing they offered was chips. It's not that hard to tweak things a bit - I would expect that they could cook a steak or provide a salad. They... More

Another Lake District pub ticking the boxes. Good beer (we had Cocker Hoop and Hobgoblin), good food, good service. However, lipstick remains on glass is a particular dislike of mine - just lazy. Perhaps lacking some character, but certainly worth a try.

We came across this place on the way home after a big walk. The car park was full which was a good sign and once inside we quickly found a table and ordered at the bar. The starters were out within about 5 min. Mains tasted great to and got delivered to our table quickly as well. We felt we... More

Stopped off here for a quick bite to eat on the way back from the garden centre; we were both going to have something simple like a burger or sandwich, but we ended up having the three course Sunday lunch. Both of us had the tomato soup starter which was lovely, I had the pork and my partner had the... More

Fantastic stay ... Only bad point was the horrendous rain that weekend. Girlfriend booked a couple of nights for my birthday along with our puppy, room was compact but clean and comfortable, what else do you need when you are there to spend time outdoors. Our dog was welcome this along with cosy sofas and an open fire, gave a... More

We got a taxi to this great little pub from Ambleside. The location is stunning set amongst the rolling and craggy hills. The outside of the pub is beautifully decorated with traditional hanging baskets. We walked in to the little bar and sampled some of the local ale then got stuck into main courses, which were huge. The ham steak... More

We grabbed some lunch here after a walk around Grasmere and whilst the food was simply prepared it was tasty and the staff were all very pleasant and all smiling. A very enjoyable place to eat with some very nice real ales to boot.

Stayed here last weekend while visiting friends in the lakes and whilst this isn't the worst hotel I've ever stayed in in my entire life, it is the worst hotel I've stayed in in the lakes and am a regular visitor there.

Hello Chris, Where do I begin?
