This pub has a warm and welcoming feel about it. It was busy but everyone seemed content. There are a number of different areas of seating in this open plan pub, which gives it a cosy feel. We enjoyed our visit and hope to return when we net visit the area.

Arrived after another day on the C2C trail. A lovely old pub in the middle of the village. Very busy but host very helpful in showing us to accommodation and set up of the shower facilities etc. Food for dinner was tasty and what was needed for another long day in the trail. Breakfast typical English breakfast but good for... More

we visited here for dinner after day three of our coast to coast walk on the recommendation of my eldest son who feels their beef pie is the best (and has been back several times to road test it). The pub was busy and had a great atmosphere. We were made to feel welcome (as were our dogs) and soon... More

We recently stayed in the Patterdale area and dropped into the White Lion for a lunchtime sandwich and for an evening meal. With some restaurants in Glenridding still closed the White Lion has been busy. I completely take my hat off to the team running the pub. We had supper on a very busy Friday night, but the food was... More

Great staff, made to feel welcome. Clean room although a little dated but a very welcome cooked breakfast in the morning with sausage, bacon, eggs and tomatoes with toast and as much cereal and fruit with juice and tea or coffee - nice and relaxed too. It was overall a very nice place. 👍😄

My wife and I dropped in here for supper to make a change from the Inn on the Lake where we were staying. It's an unpretentious old pub with unpretentious food which is exactly what we were looking for. Service was efficient and we could see those around us were getting their food in about 15 mins too. I liked... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of completing the Coast to Coast walk. Our first impressions of the place were relatively positive. We were shown to our room and given a decent explanation of its features. Our room was nothing to shout about. The bed was in need of a new mattress as it was lumpy and uneven.... More

As we were doing the Coast to Coast run, it was difficult to find accommodation within this area due to the mileage we had planned each day. This was our only option, not the most attractive property, the food was brilliant in the bar cannot fault at all, good size portions, all had different meals. the accommodation was awful, not...

Room cost just under £90. It was OK if tiny; clean, new bathroom, beds ok. Food was passable. This pub/hotel is in dire need of refurbishment. Main issue is, the pub only really serves standard city centre lager; Fosters / Carling / Heiniken etc. The only real ale they had was really bad and off. I would have sent it... More
