This pub looks lovely from the roadside so we had Sunday Lunch here today. The restaurant was exceptionally cold on arrival and didn't feel even slightly warm when we left. The food was just okay, but the temperature of the pub was unacceptable. We will not be back.

Hello Castoroil, I'm really sorry you found our restaurant a little cold. We have experienced some problems with our heating system last week and the heating downstairs was on and off for a couple of days. Thankfully the problem has now been rectified, and while I appreciate it doesn't change your (rather cold) dining experience with us last week, I...

We popped in for lunch on our way back to Bowness from a visit to the Lake District Wildlife Park in Bassenthwaite. We seemed to wait a while at the bar initially before we were served which was strange as there was only one other couple in the restaurant. However, we persevered due to the ambiance created by the two...

From the moment we walked in we were made very welcome (including the dog) and loved the quaint old English pub with 2 real coal fires and great freshly prepared food and lovely accompanying g drinks. Well worth a stop.

We spent one night here on our way home. At £60 for bed and breakfast for two it was excellent value. The evening menu had a good choice and the food was very good. The building is old and full of character. The only downside is the traffic noise however it was bearable.

We had a lovely meal here on a Saturday evening. We did call ahead and book as we had a dog with us and so needed a table in the bar. We were glad we did as the restaurant got very busy during the evening. Lovely meal and lovely real ale, both of which went down a treat.

Booked here at the last minute for a half term break. We weren't disappointed. Situated on the main road just outside the village it is perfectly placed for exploring the area and a good base for walking. Friendly staff, a comfortable room with lovely views, good food and good beer. We will definitely revisit.

Went here for a few days in November. Weather was usual for the area but this hotel with log fires burning and great food provided a great place to stay. Staff were very friendly, courteous and efficient. Food was great - evening meals, breakfast - all great standard.

We ordered 2 Camembert starters and one arrived absolutely fine with it being cooked all the way through.
