After a lengthy hike we were told this place was a good place to stay & refuel. Upon arrival we ordered a couple of drinks & some food. Disinterested bar staff were scratching their heads to see what table was available... There was one man & his dog at the bar & another couple eating a meal, the rest of... More

We booked here for a Sunday roast on a recommendation, but were sadly disappointed. Our reserved table was in the bar area, which had several flies and wasps buzzing around and was very cramped and constantly full of people queuing at the bar to order. There seemed to be a language barrier between us and the bar man, he didn't... More

Passing through Troutbeck and thought we would try this place out. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and welcoming, we will certainly return. There was a large selection of real ales and very good choice of food. Well worth the trip.

This hotel is in a lovely part of the Lake District with really great views. When we first arrived parking was a bit difficult as the carpark was being used as a builders yard with a lot of work going on all around. We had a very friendly welcome and was shown to our room and found that it hadn't... More

Kate & Garry are wonderful, welcoming hosts and we absolutely loved our stay at The Mortal Man. The pub itself is historic, relaxing and charming. It has stunning views and it is a such lovely place to stay whilst exploring the Lake District. The staff bent over backwards to help us and the food was delicious. We loved the live... More

Breakfast was awesome and the evening meal menu gave good choice and was tasty and well presented. Loads of good beer and the local musicians on the Tuesday evening made it into one of the all time great nights. entertaining quiz on... More

We recently went to the mortal man whilst on holiday. It was a recommendation from the lodge owners so we decided to try it. We sat outside due to the nice weather, the setting & scenery was lovely. Menu had a wide variety at ok prices. We ordered drinks, which came incorrect, they happily swapped them for us. We ordered... More

Went here on a girls walking weekend. Rooms were all great with amazing views down the valley towards Windermere. Breakfast was delicious and our evening meal just amazing after our 20-30km hikes around the Kentmere horseshoe. Ideal setting for numerous walks. I'll be back!!

Loved our stay at Mortal man. One brilliant double room, and next door was a dog friendly double, wit a fire door to exit in middle of the night when William, (black Labrador) wanted to have a wee. Delightful lady (think the owner) took us to see both rooms as we booked in and she was so helpful and friendly.... More
