My wife and I booked this small Pub with rooms as a stop off point on the way up to Scotland. We booked via Late rooms. First of all the pub is not in Penrith, it is in a small village about 10 minutes drive away in Culgaith.
So there is no where to wander to once you have checked in!! We booked a superior double room which was excellent, plently of space, king size bed and two arm chairs. Very quiet though but we were able to sit out in the Garden to watch the Sun go down with a bottle of wine!
We did not eat in the restaurant/bar in the evening but it was very popular and I think fully booked on the Saturday night. Looking at the menu it was very interesting but I thought a bit pricey. Heard a comment as someone was leaving the restaurant " they seem to be trying too hard" The proprietor even took the trouble to knock on our door at 8.40pm as we had not ventured down for dinner, trouble was we were so engrossed with the new X -Factor series we didn't hear her knocking for ages!!
Breakfast was excellent and very well cooked. Would definitely stay here again if I only wanted a bed for the night and a good meal. If I wanted to wander about in the day/evening would probably venture more into the Lake District to Windermere/Bowness.
