Beautifully refurbished in 2018. This 18th century Inn is bursting with character, very comfortable seating and good that is full of flavour. If you are on the A66 or Ullswater road, it's worth the visit.

Had a lovely lunch in the refurbished pub so returned for an evening meal. Unfortunately one meal was fine but the burger was possibly the worst I've had in years - was it pre-packed? May give it one more chance. Disappointing
