Great scenery on the drive there and if you can sit outside you look over the lakes and hills
food was excellent quite a varied choice of dishes and big portions ,and there is a choice of real ales 4 at the time of my visit . I would definitely go there again.

“Disasterous gift to my sister and brother in law”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

I got a voucher deal as a gift for my sister and her husband. They were late using it because my brother in law had been so I'll but in fairness to the inn they said they could come for a 3 course meal in May.
They said the food was dreadful, overcooked meat, obviously 're-heated and dry, sauces that didn't suit the meat, tasted awful and the place tired in need of refurbishment and cleaning. They did inform the waitress when asked if they had enjoyed their meal but she just ignored it and staff just watched them leave without any form of apology. None of my family or friends will go here ever again
