We found The Red Lion during our stay in the Lake District and went there two days in a row for the same lunch - fish and chips (better than any we have had here at home in Cornwall!). The food was excellent and the bar staff were friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend lunch here before or after a long walk - lovely.
