Very popular pub and they accept dogs and you can even buy treats for the dog whilst you are there! Lovely, well worth a visit.

A typical country pub, friendly, buzzing, great atmosphere AND dog friendly! As everyone recommends, The Hungarian Goulash, we had to try it....Superb! Great on a freezing cold night, my other half had the large portion, I had the smaller one and both served with crispy garlic baguette. There's a good choice of real ales as well. We got chatting to some great people all enjoying The Lakes so were last out :-)

After a full day walking how better to relax with a nice pint and some excellent pub food (Try the Goulash a speciality) The pub has a relaxed policy to well behaved dogs and even sells doggy treats from the bar. So if you want a good night out with friendly locals try the 'dog' we used it most nights during our weeks stay

The Dog and Gun is a really good pub with close links to the mountain rescue team. The staff are friendly and we really enjoyed the Halloween night they did. The Hungarian Goulash is superb and we managed to feed 2 adults and 2 children with just 2 portions. The meat was nice and it came with plenty of garlic bread

Only drawback is they don't really do much in the way of deserts
