Had a ploughman's lunch here and it was high quality and great value. Beer was great and staff friendly. Avoid the tourist traps and go here.

Just off the beaten track, a bit hard to find, but well worth a visit. But, if you cant find it, just ask. We went in the late afternoon after a long hot day in The Lakes. Lovely olde (1600s) pub inside, but we sat outside in the beer garden. Packed with Lakes lovers and beer lovers, great atmosphere, good... More

It was full inside and out when we arrived early in the evening. We didn't have to wait long for a table. The food was excellent. I had the fish pie. I am pleased I had it has it was really delicious, my partner had a curry and he really enjoyed his meal.

What a lovely olde worlde pub, in keeping with its surroundings, traditional and like stepping back in time. Great selection of ciders and ales and a great atmosphere, my only grumble was that at peak time it was understandably very busy and the two poor lasses that were serving food and working the bar were run ragged, they coped admirably...

Lovely little find as it's hidden behind the main street. Very old pub but everyone was very friendly. There is cheaper pubs around but it's definitely worth a visit. Dogs are aloud.

My wife and I ate here last Friday night and was not disappointed! We had a few drinks during the afternoon and decided to eat there that evening! They stop serving food at 8 and don't take bookings, so we decided to get there for 7 and were luckily enough to get a table! We both opted for the steak... More
