The walking around Glasson after a few days of rain can be a bit of a muddy challenge - Marsh Lane is very aptly named! Add some showery rain and low temperatures, made to seem even lower by strong wind, and even the hardiest of walkers would appreciate the Stork Inn at Conder Green. We arrived cold, wet and in need of refreshment. The lovely Chrissie welcomed us warmly and installed us next to a blazing log fire. (I think I'm in love!). Three of the real ales on offer had run out but that still left three to choose from - Black Sheep, Lancaster Amber and Timothy Taylor's Landlord - and all three were on fine form! The food was excellent and our request to share a main course didn't raise any eyebrows. I can't comment on the accommodation as we were staying elsewhere (I can't imagine it not being good, though), but we made a point of having breakfast at the Stork the following day and that was lovely - local produce (slime-free bacon!), well cooked and presented. Very good value. We'll be back.
