The Newfield Inn is situated at the heart of the Duddon Valley, well away from the well beaten tourist trails of the English Lake District. The most striking feature of this rustic pub is it's slate floor, hewn from local quarries and polished over time with it's distinctive banding of darker and lighter shades.
Bar and restaurant meals served here.
Accommodation is available in two self catering flats and nearby there are plenty of holiday cottages. There is a campsite at a farm half a mile away.
Every year on the Saturday following the Spring Bank Holiday the Duddon Valley Fell Run takes place from near the pub and ends in the field behind it. This event is followed by live music in the beer garden.
Most visitors driving through Wrynose Pass to the north go straight on over Hardknott Pass and on to Eskdale, ignoring the road off to the left which goes down Duddon Valley. It is worth making that detour to sample the delights of the Duddon Valley and in particular the Newfield Inn in this quiet corner of the otherwise bustling Lake District.

We stayed for the weekend in a cottage and this pub came highly recommended. We had food and drinks (lots!!) on Sunday night, food was faultless, I was impressed with the vege options and had a delicious pasta with a 'side' salad that was like a main in itself and my boyfriend had gammon and said it was well cooked and one of the best he has had. Huge portions too!
We stayed for drinks that the owner let roll onto a tab and at end of night we paid up and it was incredibly good value. Both owners were lovely and took time to have a chat and tell us things about the area etc. It was so good we went for lunch the day after and again was brilliant. Would like to go again and try their holiday flats.

This is an overlooked part of the Lake District. We strolled up towards Seathwaite Tarn but were forced to turn back after we had crossed the snow line when a blizzard blew up, its March.
Cold and thirsty we popped into this lovely pub. Just what a pub should be. A wood burner providing plenty of warmth, a friendly barman, good beer.

The menu looked good, the vegetable soup smelt delicious but we were not hungry.

Well worth a visit

I recently spent a weeks walking in the area based in the Duddon Valley with a group of friends and visited this pub on several occassions. It offers all a walker could desire when coming in from snow and sub zero tempratures with a log burner and great beers,and with flagstone floors there's no worry about coming in with your boots on and dogs are welcome with leads on. On the last night we all went for our evening meal and had a great experience especially for those who like their steak as all meat is locally sourced and the T Bone steaks were delicious, as was the steak pie. It has a beer garden and childrens play area but alas the weather didn't permit us to sample the exterior facilities!

We stayed in Ulpha Christmas week and first night I found this pub in the middle of nowhere. The landlord Paul was very welcoming, and the cutomers were very friendly. They even had a play Christmas eve. We had a family meal one lunchtime and I had the steak (£19) and it was to die for. The cumberland sausages are top quality as well. Great beer and we are looking forward to going back.
Recommended.
