We met up with friends from Scotland (halfway between and a lot more comfortable than Hadrians Wall). Excellent food; excellent beer; friendly service. A good base for local walking or wider excursions by car to the Wall or northern Lakes. Walking distance of station for Settle-Carlisle line.
Bedroom en-suite facilities of a high standard - just what is needed after a day out in the countryside. Cosy bar with open fire and unpretentious decor. Definitely to be recommended.
