“Warm welcome at a walker & camper's pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Although the pub itself appears a little rough around the edges given that its most frequent visitors are probably walkers and holiday makers from a local campsite, the warm welcome and generous portions of typically British pub food on offer soon make up for that. The steak pie had 4 times as much meat in as you might get in one of the bog-standard "chain" pubs and you must leave room for the sticky toffee pudding which, again, would easily put the more genteel offerings you get at more up-market pubs & restuarants into the shade. Definitely worth a visit if you're not put off too much by the informal surroundings

Lovely food, good choice of beer, blazing open fire, friendly service. Just what a country pub should be.

“Burnt Soup. Is it possible, yes.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Burnt soup, I can't really say any thing else, must have been a very bad day for the chef! Maybe he/she thought we wouldn't notice but sadly we did!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

After a long walk around beautifual Eskdale back to the George for great food and great company.
Accomodation is also fab. We stayed in the 4 bedroomed apartment and it was just great.
I would stay over again. Recently called in for a meal in passing.
