Review is for the Hikers bar only. Great place for relaxing after walking langdale valley. Had fish and chips and pint of Jennings Cumberland ale. Both excellent. There was a great choice on offer, about 6 real ales and scrumpy at reasonable prices. Packed night due to country music festival which added to the rustic atmosphere. Will definitely be back in the future.

The old dungeon ghyll hotel is a very cosy and comforting hotel. It is extremely affordable and include a free breakfast. Engulfed by the fabulous views of the valley the hotel is perfect for a good rest after a long day of exploring and walking. In the lounge there is a great selection of board games, to play after a lovely tea at the adjoined pub

I would completely recommend

Everybit as good as last time. Location picturesque. Food marvellous ( even got free poached toast and haggis late one night in the hotel bar). Rooms cosy...Nice place to relax after a long days walking. Staff very friendly and helpful. Limited technology no tvs weak wifi etc...but not a problem as theres plenty of socialising to be done...

This review is just of the bar, I haven't visited the hotel as we were staying in the campsite across the road.

A very traditional walker's pub at the remotest end of a valley, which is fine if thats your thing.

Our kids were disappointed that there were no power sockets anywhere to recharge their phones from, or wifi to speak of. These are both vital commodities when you are camping without a mobile signal or mains power, and its one reason we go to bars in the lakes.

(A password is posted above the bar, but a few of us tried and could not even get a single page to load. I was told this is because its a long way from the exchange I returned the morning after and tried from outside and it did at least work, but despite a strong radio signal, it was VERY slow, far worse than mobile in a decent signal area.

The Sticklebarn, only a mile or two up the road has both ample sockets and a decent wifi, so is a better bet for families and we spent many hours there as a result.
