“Great wee pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Popped in here for a couple of pints and ended up having a supper. Despite the fact that it is off the beaten track and that it was a cold November evening the place was mobbed. Despite that the staff dealt admirably with the crowd and it really felt like a good old English country pub.

Real ales on tap and some nice stodge to go with it.

Definitely one for going back to.

“Great traditional pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Didn't know this pub existed until our friends told us about it. On a day out in Bowness we were hungry so decided to try this pub. Just made it in time before it got extremely busy. We ordered out food which was fab. I had Cottage Pie which was scrummy, hubby and a friend had the Fish Pie again delicious and other friend had Cumberland Sausage. Wow huge. God old traditional pub grub that suited us down to the ground. Will remember this pub next time we visit.

“A quiet drink ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

On New Year's Day we wanted a couple of drinks after a meal out elsewhere in the village. A great pub full of character nice bar staff, quirky interesting artefacts and fabulous cask ales (so my partner said!) A lovely log fire and very cosy. We will be back!
