Stopped here for lunch whilst on a fell walk with friends. All our sandwiches were delicious and much better than expected due to some other reviews. We sat outside in the sun and enjoyed a couple of excellent real ales.

All in all a very pleasant experience indeed. Give this place a go.

Cold, unfriendly atmosphere, staff unwilling to light fire, telelvision on very loudly. Very drafty and generally an uncomfortable place to be. Food poor. None of the locals go there, and it is a nuisance as I frequently stay in Matterdale and would like a decent pub to go to. No feel of a nice pub. Such a pity.

We stayed twice at the Royal last month as a break in a journey to Northern Ireland. On the way out we stayed two nights with a very comfortable room and excellent food. We liked being able to walk to Aira Force through the fields and woods without having to use the car. On the way back our ferry was late so we we were glad to have an excellent steak and a good nights sleep. We found all the staff to be very pleasant.. All in all we enjoyed our stay and thought it better than other places we have stayed in the Lake District.
