We stayed in staffield hall a short drive away from here, originally we attempted to find pubs closer to us advised in the welcome book such as the crown inn but they were fully booked. However, this could not have worked out better as we then stumbled across this little beauty, from the moment we arrived Donald greeted us and... More

A secluded spot for a quiet getaway. I travelled here after a walk in the lakes and the accommodation, though in need of some updating was clean and comfortable. The dinner and breakfast were delicious and the service was friendly with Donald happy to accommodate requests wherever possible. I would return here but it's not ideally located if you want...

Peace and quiet for a good nights sleep (No) (The premises could do with sound proofing). The last thing that is needed is to be able to hear the locals talking very loudly until 2.30 in the...

Four of us popped in yesterday for lunch. Very friendly landlord, great beer and food and a relaxed atmosphere. What more could you ask. We will return sooner rather than later as the area is lovely and there's plenty on the menu to try yet!

Although the welcome was not as warm as expected and we felt a little like we were in the way, the place was cosy and comfortable. The place was next to the village church that chimed its bells all night every 15 mins so I would suggest ear plugs for any light sleepers. The breakfast was very good and set... More

When staying in a cottage at Great Salkeld, we found this village pub, very friendly and the food is excellent. You must try the Steak Pie ,and the Fruit Crumble that comes with ice cream and custard. We went in on three occiasions.

The welcome on arrival was particularly warm and we were made to feel very welcome, the rooms are modern, clean and contort able withe a particularly good en suite. Food was Fresh and very good, though the selection for vegetarians was limited. Wifi was intermittent and rather slow.

A most convivial and obliging host providing a good variety of food and comfortable accommodation. Unfortunately stairs to rooms and restaurant could be awkward for the less mobile. On street parking on a quiet road available.
