“Worse burger, ever! Cardboard, when you have such beautiful cumbrian beef available!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

None of our group of 6 thought much of this place. The service was amazingly fast, mind, though don't expect a lamb shank to be out in 3-4 minutes! Long enough for the microwave to ping away! If they had gone to the effort of producing a decent burger then we would have possibly returned. How can you make such a disaster!

“Cosy Pub”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Local to the cottage we were staying in , warm cosy & freindly . Beer was great reasonable priced , couple of days when they didn't have any was a little disappointing, food looked good portions, although we didn't eat there. But will try next time we return ............

“Great views”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Nice little pub with an old fashioned atmosphere. Food looked expensive (£9.50 for minced beef pie and chips) but the views outside are great.

“felt sad and ripped off”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

sat outside pub and ordered beer and fish'nchips for 2 in September 2012. Its now Jan and I think the food was something like £12 each. Thats a lot but fair enough if its lovely fresh produce. What we got was like the cheapest frozen rubbish you'd only expect at the cheapest of cafes. a small piece of breaded, tasteless dry fish, a few frozen chips and some frozen peas. that's it.
the 1 star is for the beer, which was fine, food nil.

It makes me very angry to see people ripped off like this. Thank goodness the next day we had a fantastic lunch at The Filling Station in Keswick - see my review, go there and eat well. you deserve it.

“Vinegar”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Hand pulled ale tasted of vinegar. Bar staff would not exchange, they said it was supposed to taste like vinegar.
