Staying in Eskdale, we ate at this place twice. The first night we got there just in the nick of time before end of service. We'd just driven 120 miles! So there were very few people in the restaurant. My first choice (steak pie ) had run out so I had the salmon instead. Absolutely gorgeous and cooked to perfection. My husband's meal was also delicious and all freshly cooked.
They serve a 'taster' platter of the beers on tap; 3 small glasses of each one. Lovely idea.
Wasn't too keen on the background music but it wasn't too loud. On the 2nd evening, arriving inplenty of time, the resaurant was buzzing. The owner/manager made our dogs very welcome, offering them gravy bones while we ate. We felt very welcome and comfy here, and on the strength of that are considering staying in the accomodation on offer next year. Beautiful area, shame that it was pouring with rain. For info, meals serves until 8.30pm in the week and 9pm at weekends
