“All round celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Of all the places we could have stayed no expense spared for my 50th birthday, I was in my element here with the things I love the most.
My wife, our big black puppy and the most welcoming landlord Jon and his staff waving an ever changing selection of the best kept beers at me, to wash down proper portions of, freshly cooked tasty no nonsense meals. In my favourite landscape.
We booked the downstairs flat, which looks a tiny bit dated, but was very comfortable and we were able to properly relax.
We will definitely visit again, All power to your pint pulling elbow Jon, keep up the good work

We stayed in the self catering flat for three nights. It was ideal for a weekend walking in the Lakes. Peaceful location (a bit of noise from the dining room but Landlord Jonathan's family was having a get together) apart from that 100% perfect. Good pub food, great real ales and staff were very helpful. Is was also nice to see local people coming into the pub and Sunday evening was entertaining with 'Play your cards right'. We will 100% be back.

Stayed for three nights walking in the Western Lakes, location is spot on being close to the high fells of Eskdale and Wadale.

The flat for two was clean and well equiped, some of the bathroom fittings were a little worn but there was always plenty of hot water for the bath and shower. It is below the pub so you may hear a bit of noise when they are clearing up at night but nothing major. TV reception is good and the pub had decent orange phone reception too which is a plus.

The best thing is definitely the pub itself, great beer and a good selection of well cooked tasty pub meals. Not gastro type meals but just what you want when you've been out on the hills all day. Its a real locals pub too which is great to see.

Very dog friendly which was a key factor for us in chosing to stay here.

Would definitely recommend.

A group of 18 of us took over most of the hotel for the weekend in order to climb Scafell Pike for charity on the Saturday. The rooms including self-catering accommodation were perfectly clean and well-ordered. The food was excellent and with a great selection of real ales and wines. But what was truly amazing, to someone who has travelled around the world, was the fantastic hospitality of the staff. The owner was a human dynamo. Nothing was too much trouble. He met everyone with a constant smile and provided a standard of service which you seldom see these days. Not only that, but his whole staff acted in exactly the same way. One member of staff came in on her evening off on the Saturday just to say goodbye to us, as she was not working on the Sunday. Absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much.

From mid August to the end of August we stayed at Fisherground Camp Site. The King George IV pub was within walking distance. What a fantastic pub. Dog and child friendly, superb staff and an ever changing selection of real ales. Also, the real ales are not just from the Lakes area, but from further afield. When we visted, they had Flat Cap on from Bank Top brewery in Bolton (our home town), among many others. Jonty has a great team of staff and they were extremely friendly and helpful. The food is all home cooked and really tasty, especially the beef and ale pie. Thoroughly recommended.

Visited the King George IV for lunch while walking in Eskdale. Very welcoming staff, dog friendly and good pub grub. Had the Cumberland sausage baguette with mushrooms, side salad and chips, very tasty. Followed by bread and butter pudding from the specials board. Good value for money.
