Popped in after a walk to the lake. Steak and Ale pie was great with proper chips. good selection of real ales. Plenty of room with good comfortable seats.

Very friendly and great pub food. My brother dropped his phone and wallet outside and the community took great effort to find him and hand it back - we were touched by this

Having visited this pub a number of years previous we were looking forward to revisiting during our week in the Lakes. What a disappointment. Cold and unwelcoming sums it up really. Average food but a good selection of ales. Won't be going back. Such a pity as there is so much potential in a stunning area of the Lakes.

We literally stumbled into this place after a long and trying first day of the Coast to Coast walk and it was WONDERFUL! The atmosphere is pure British, complete with a couple of bar regulars, great selection of great ales, and the absolute BEST fish and chips I have ever had! In fact, I tried to eat fish and chips...

Good food, average prices, choice of larges and beer. This community owned pub needs supporting, good service. They also run a small shop a couple of hundred yards up the road. Shop has minimum stores but lady in shop went out the back to get us milk, which wasn't on display. The friendly Lady at shop was very informative about... More

We ate here on the coast to coast walk. Good choice of basic pub food but included some good salads as well. The local community have supported the running of this pub and they should be proud of what they have achieved. Good atmosphere.
