Arrived soaking wet into Shap and straight out to this pub for a meal as we were advised it was the only place to eat in Shap apart from the fish and chip shop. The pub was busy at 6.30 with people watching football and the staff were quite offhand with us but possibly because they were so busy. I... More

Really nice people running the place who are well organised. The rooms vary quite a bit but are all clean and absolutely fine for a night on the Coast to Coast. Good food & beer and a hearty breakfast.

Food excellent, great reception from the owners and rooms well appointed. There is not alot to do in Shap but if you need a bed for the night in the Coast to Coast walk there is not a better establishment.

I stayed here for 1 night in April whilst on a walking holiday. The Inn did not open until 3pm. We had a warm welcome and our bedroom was large with a lovely ensuite shower room. I had a meal in the evening, the bar was really quiet and the owner cooked my food. I had a superb sirloin steak... More

We tried this pub out on our arrival in Shap after a very tough day's walking from Patterdale with a view to possibly dining there later in the evening. Just one real ale on offer and a bit lacking in any real character persuaded us to look elsewhere.

Proprietors and bar staff very friendly and helpful, rooms clean and nicely decorated ... Cosy and comfortable. Breakfast enjoyably English. Upon arrival, was pleasantly surprised by the friendly welcome and helpfulness of staff due to lack of local amenities Ie bus service and taxi service out of village, absolute reliance on own transport.

Saved my life when I was stuck on the motorway for 7 hours, and let me in at 0200! Nice room, but I did not get much of a chance to enjoy the pub as I was 7 hours late, but outstanding breakfast and best black pudding I have ever tasted. Extremely friendly and accommodating and really good prices, highly... More

This hotel had good sized rooms with en-suite facilities. The owners were welcoming and helpful especially with allowing us to dry our clothes in their boiler room! Our room was at the front of the hotel and was very noisy due to the hotel being located on a main room. Our friends had a room on the level up and... More

We stopped by here for a evening meal as we were staying at a local B&B and were very impressed by the menu choices, the prices and the quality of the food. We met up with some other coast to coasters who were staying here and others who did the same as us, just dropped by for some food. We... More
