We came here two nights, the first for drinks only and the second for food. The portions sizes are very large and the food itself was excellent and reasonably priced. The only problem was the lack of customers - I would highly recommend this place. Very surprised it wasn't a lot busier - maybe the bad weather was to blame. Friendly service too.

Had a lovely walk at Ennerdale & then stopped at The Shepherds Arms for lunch. The food was really fantastic & great value. Husband had tomato & tarragon soup, which was definitely home-made with big chunks of tomato in it, followed by a ham, cheese & mustard sandwich. Again couldn't be faulted with proper ham & absolutely stuffed with cheese. I had spicy chicken with salad & coleslaw, could've fed me for the week the portion was so large! We both had drinks, me a non-alcoholic beer & hubbie an ale, all for just over £16, can't fault it. We will definitely be going again.

We called in again last week. The food was really very good, well presented and served with friendly service. Real ale in perfect condition with a good ambience in the pub especially as theye were a group on cyclists on the C2C enjoying themselves.
