I went with 4 friends to have the Christmas lunch which is available throughout December and it was absolutely excellent. You can have either two or three courses. All of us enjoyed our choices. I had trout en croute for my main course. Beautifully crisp pastry on a bed of fab sauce, just scrummy. The others had turkey with the...

Great first impressions, very helpful reception staff with regards to parking etc. Great room, very clean and tidy. Hotel itself is also very aesthetically pleasing with a nice bar, the only thing that let it down was the breakfast, the waiter wasn't the most helpful, felt like we were a hindrance being there. When it came, my yolk was hard,...

We had a fantastic meal in the restaurant and the staff were excellent Evelyn...

Visited this lovely hotel for a second time in November 2016. Stayed in a Herdwick room which was quite small but adequate for our two night stay. Lovely cocktails served by the friendly staff in the bar and the food in the restaurant is lovely. I had a rib eye steak one night and the porky belly the other night,...

We met with friends here for a Christmas Lunch, we had a wonderful table as we were a large group. Exceptionally attentive staff, the food was excellent value for money, good selection to choose from and packed with taste. We opted for two courses and could not have managed three... Wine list has a tremendous selection for all budgets which...

Following a 10 mile stroll around derwentwater on a gorgeous December morning my partner and I popped into the inn on the square for a quick drink and a bite to eat. The bar was quiet and our simple order quickly placed - steak sandwich and fish and chips. 60 minutes later there was still no sign of food at...

Recently and beautifully renovated lovely old building in the centre of the town. The staff were just brilliant - consistently pleasant and professional. I stayed here for 6 nights in November with a mixture of weather- wet and windy and cold and snowy. The hotel was warm and comfortable and my single room just about big enough.This could be improved...
