We chose this as a stop rather by accident. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. Our room was clean, modern and nicely furnished. They serve good beer and wine with great real ales. We looked at the menu for dinner as Braithwaite is a few miles from Keswick and we had been driving all day. The food was excellent... More

Good standard of bar food at the right price, great selections of well looked after real ales and perhaps.....just perhaps the very best beer garden view in England. Right across the valley to the awesome bulk of Skiddaw at over 3000 feet in height. Go and have a look for yourself.....but don't tell too many people about it or I... More

One of the largest and properly presented Sunday's Roasts we have had in public house - real value for money - a lovely view from the lovely garden area - we will be back before too long - real ale was also available - it's hidden away from the main road which adds to the attraction

Once again the Coledale lived up to its high reputation. We had a lovely room situated round the corner which was very clean and comfortable. The food as usual was of a high standard. We were made to feel at home by the friendly staff as was our greyhound Bo who takes up quite a bit of space when he... More

Once again we had a fantastic time in the Coledale. Great food menu, plus lots of variety on the ever-changing 'specials' board'. Great beer & wine. Fantastic staff in all areas, with the new members of staff settling in well and all very personable. We also met some lovely guests and (how we're not sure) won the weekly quiz! Can't... More

We recently stayed here for the weekend with friends. The hotel was very comfortable, clean and everything we needed. We ate there on the Friday night with a view that if it was not very good we could go elsewhere to eat on the Saturday as our friends were staying at middle Ruddings. We need not have worried the food... More
