Great owners, friendly and always a warm welcome. A range of ales and beers available. Food is always excellent and service top class. If your looking for a traditional pub, open fires and great food look no further. We will be back and see you soon

The tapas on new years eve was delicious with ample choice and there was a fantastic atmosphere with disco and karaoke. Our room was exceptionally clean and tidy and we enjoyed every minute... More

We have just come back from a 2 night stay. From checking in to checking out all of the staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and lovely decorated. The bar area was very warm and cosey with all the buzz of a traditional inn. The menu was very good catering for vegetarians very well. The... More

We all enjoyed our stay at your hotel. We thought the food was very good, although we were glad that we were only staying for a week-end because we thought that the range of dishes on offer was a bit limited. But we accept that we could not reasonably expect Egon Ronay, and if you offered that then it would... More

Stayed for a weekend and really enjoyed the break, owners very nice and friendly. The food was amongst the best we have had - very generous portions at reasonable prices all washed down with a good selection of traditional beers and backed up with a good choice of wines - very nice Malbec on the wine list. The bedroom was... More

Always try and stay here when driving between Devon and Aberdeen. Always such a warm welcome, great atmosphere, great food and a lovely freshly cooked breakfast. Colin and his staff always make you feel so welcome.

Quaint and historic lodge with cosy feel 20 mins drive from Carlisle set in a quiet small village. Our room with en suite was warm, comfortable, clean and well equipped but was short of wardrobe/storage space. I washed down a tasty seafood pasta with a couple of smooth ales in the bar. Real open fires were a huge bonus. Good... More
