We always make a bee-line for this pub whenever we are in Eskdale, which is quite frequent as we live in the NW lakes and love this delightful valley. This time we took three Australian friends to lunch there, and they were delighted with our choice. The food was as great as ever, the menu really extensive with something to... More

This place is just fantastic ! Great local ales & the food is just superb !! We ate here 3 times in the week we stayed in Boot. The moment we walked in the door to see if we could book a table for 6, the atmosphere was really welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and had a lovely (sneaky)... More

Downside is there menu is trying to be a bit upmarket when a lot of people just want pub grub. As it is a more pub environment than a posh restaurant. I was disappointed not to of seen gammon...

This pub was a welcome site after a long walk on a very sunny day. The food was the best pub food I have tasted. All of our meals (2 kids + 2 adults) were well presented and hot. We all cleared our plates. I can definitely recommend the spinach and feta cheese pie.

We stayed here in May. The pub is very good and bedrooms comfortable and well maintained. The food is to a better standard than the usual pub grub. We were walking and it being the lakes, got wet. The pub has a drying room for guests which was very useful! The only negatives were the dance type music in the... More

We have been visiting the Brook House Inn during the last week whilst staying at a local self catering cabin. We have been calling in later in the evening for a drink, and have always been made very welcome. The beer (Langdale) has been kept very well and goes down a treat. We also have had two evening meals, and... More

Beautiful scenery and views of Eskdale in a quaint English pub with a good selection of local beers. Unfortunately the food is tasteless, very disappointing and the staff not very friendly. We live quite local and there are far better pubs with much better food in Eskdale give this one a miss.

A great place to stay. Ample parking, nice rooms, nice bar and lovely food here. Just a short walk from the Eskdale valley railway. You must treat yourself to a ride down the line to the town of Ravenglass, then back up to Eskdale by the power of steam. Eskdale is such a peaceful setting, great views and great walks.... More
