Service good drinks very reasonable and the views are excellent. There are pods and chalets here if you want to stay. It's the gateway to the lakes.

Popped into The Golden Ball for Breakfast this morning. Reasonably priced, huge portions & absolutely spot on. Couldn't fault my meal. What a beautiful establishment the owners and staff should be proud.

Slightly disappointed with this visit for such a big place just having one bar open the size of a cupboard is a joke. I'm told the the previous manager ran the place a lot better than it is now. We had to queue in a...More

Visited here last month for the second time. Our first stay was 2 nights in a glamping pod last year, which we loved, so this year we decided to try the little rooms. The room was gorgeous & stunningly decorated with little extra touches. Like...More

sorry pab-8 Little Listed gorgeous (A RESCUED NEVER TO BE SEEN OR ENJOYED AGAIN UNLESS A BRAVE MAN AND FAMILY TOILED AND WORKED RISKED AND BOTHERED WITH SOME INSIGHT) pub in the most gorgeous part of Lancashire Lakeland area I instantly fell in love with this place as did my very fussy very I live in my room on Xbox one live arguing online with his cousin and I must admit swearing some serious abuse back and forth type of guy. This lad enjoyed this little bit of heaven where he saw his mum and dad relaxed together and happy I actually saw him smile more than once (seriously)and he's not daft. He actually came outside with me and threw polystyrene aeroplanes with me in the fresh air for at least twenty minutes.. I call that major progress following a good feed and a great peaceful nights sleep.not questioning your review just surprised as I didn't expect much but in my review it was good honest and piping hot.and I'm going back as soon as I can escape from work and premier inns you should taste or not taste the fish and chips there in various brands of restaurants at £9.79 for frozen cod and frozen chips with frozen mushy peas. Anyhow hope your well and hope on your next trip you hit your jackpot as we have done. Just a bit worried about introducing my two older daughters to this place after reading one of the funny plaques in the bar mentioning "loud" "obnoxious" and "swearing" think I might just bring the lad back.. Glad you enjoyed the pod thought are they a good night away ???
