We visited for a family Sunday lunch and were not disappointed with the quality of the food or friendly efficient service. It would be a good idea though to serve extra gravy in a separate gravy boat as some other places do. The pub is set in a quiet little village with ample parking and is very good value. Highly...

Stayed a weekend when visiting the Lake District. Kelly was very accommodating and the staff were very friendly. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and I can only describe the food and ambiance as 'heavenly. Booking the hare and hound really made our trip perfect!

First visit to this delightful pub which exudes class, possibly because it is a free house. The dining areas are spread over a number of cosy areas and there is a welcoming bar with a good selection of beer brewed in the locality. The menu is quite extensive and reasonably priced but we had been recommended to try the beefsteak... More
