Booked the Horse and Farrier for a meal on the 5th March to celebrate my 50th birthday with my wife and parents. We've been here many times and always had a fantastic meal which is the reason I booked it. What a disappointment it turned out to be. The menu was very limited and when we arrived (at 6:30pm) we...

We booked a special family anniversary meal here 3 months ago requesting a special table near the open fire. We arrived on time to find an overcrowded restaurant and were ushered to a far table(away from the fire). The tables were so squashed in it was difficult to get in/out of our seats. This was not consistent to the pictures... More

Visited this lovely pub for the second time with my young daughter. Staff were very welcoming and accommodating for my little one, and the food was excellent. Scampi and chips in particular were really delicious, and the ice cream sundae on the kids menu went down a treat. Would definitely stop here again when we are next in the area.

This is probably the best restaurant in the area and the county. Sophisticated flavours, great day food quality. Excellent kind and useful service. Good variety of drinks: ales and different wines. Clean place with a nice warm atmosphere. Lovely deco. I would add other couple of options on the tap for ciders and lagers and this place would be the... More

Staying nearby, lunch was had by 5 of us. All really pleased, I had the ploughman's plate, wow, what an absolute delight with almost too much cheese. We drank copious amounts of lively beer, all served by the friendliest of staff in a warm atmosphere. Can't wait for a return visit

From the well cooked and tasty local produce to the homely atmospheric interior (with blazing open fire) and the very helpful and friendly staff, this is everything you wish for in a Lake District village inn. If you are in the area, a recommended must visit!

We used to visit this establishment a lot during our holidays and frequent visits to the lakes but this last time we popped in for our evening meal the food wasnt up to the Horse and Farriers usual high standard. We ordered the same meals as normal but my mediterranean pasta bake was extremely watery and lacking in vegetables and... More
