We went here for food after an abortive trip to the Pooley Bridge inn and the experience couldn't have been more different. We were given a friendly welcome and a table in the small restaurant area.
Between us we ordered a variety of dishes, including the steak and ale pie, steak, fish and chips, Cumberland sausage and chicken and broccoli pie. Unfortunately the chicken pie wasn't available and this is one area where the pub could improve - the menu is very red meat heavy and the person in question ended up ordering from the kids menu because there was nothing else she fancied.
I had the steak and ale pie, which came with a mound of chips and thoroughly enjoyed it. Another in our party also had this and found it a little dry, but mine was fine in that respect. All of the portions seemed to very generous and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food.
The prices were fairly expensive, but this is the lake district and nothing is cheap - in Pooley Bridge the cheapest pint of lager we found was £3.75!
In the bar area there are also three dogs who wander around getting strokes from people. They certainly add to the atmosphere of the place!
