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

The White Lion have got B and B for walkers particularly C2C ers. sorted. From the initial phone call to paying up and leaving they were friendly efficient and organised. The pub is a very narrow building right on the road in Patterdale . The B and B rooms named after Lakeland Fells are all compact but clean and comfortable.... More

We stayed at the patterdale hotel and just around the corner is a beautiful little pub. From outside it's painted white and well kept. Inside it's lovely and cosy. You can sit in a booth with stunning views of the fields and fells. Food looks good although we didn't eat here. Just a word of warning when leaving ...make sure... More

It was a relief to find this hotel directly in the trail for the Coast to Coast...I wasn't going to walk a moment longer that day...Genuinely packed to the rafters with tourists and locals it must be doing something right. Food was good - average but it all hit the spot...beer was cold like it should be. Be quick to... More
