We visited for 2 nights due to a wedding very close by. The hotel was in a good location, with plenty of off street parking. The room was impeccably clean and spacious, with a lovely bathroom, and good quality furnishings. The bed was a little firm for us, but we slept very well none the less. The breakfast in the...

Had lunch here recently as a birthday treat. Food not as good as last time. To be honest, not worth the money any more. Not much on the plate and yet still expensive. Very disappointed with our visit. We may try again at some later date.

Just driving past at lunchtime we pulled over to 'have a look' and wandered in. As it was Mother's Day they were unfortunately, and expectedly, fully booked; however they promptly made us up a table and couldn't have been more welcoming! The menu advised it was all local produce & they had a lovely selection of real ales on tap....

There was a small sitting area for use with tea, coffee etc. on the landing. The food was amazing. The cheese and spinach souffle in chive...

Usually excellent on this occasion the blackboard specials and main menu were disappointing. However lovely staff great atmosphere but price and quality didn't match...

Ate here a few weeks ago and had an excellent roast beef, Yorkshire pud. etc. Sunday lunch. The beef was excellent, pink, tender, delicious. So why, oh why do they drown it in gravy? Just bring the gravy in a nice little jug and I'll decide how much gravy I want to put on it. The place was very busy...

Lunch for four, mains and deserts plus drinks. Two fish and chips off the specials board and two poached pollock. The fish and chips were great, crispy batter and tasty fish so big it was almost too big for the plate. The poached pollock with asparagus and wild garlic mash was exceptional. The apple crumble desert was also very good....

It's becoming a regular place to eat. A bit off the main routes to Cumbria but we'll worth a visit. Friendly welcome. Great choice of local foods and beers. Main menu and a specials board. Will cater for all tastes. Recommend the Short horn beef cottage pie. Wonderfully rich and tasty. Also get a dish to share. You won't be...
