The food here cannot be faulted. It is good and filling and plenty for everyone. Decor is a little dated but it is cosy. Nice for a meal out with the family.

Omg - this place is very, very, special.. situated in Braithwaite waterside essentially to the only ‘lake’ in the #LakeDistrict, #IPAs on tap, clean rooms, great service and an incredible breakfast! But really it’s all about the views... picture-postcard-perfect is the term I think.
