We enjoyed a family meal here after hearing it was under new management and reading the positive reviews. The staff were very friendly and the pub itself is very typical of a traditional Lake District Inn. The menu offered a pretty good variety of dishes. although there didn't appear to be any specials available. The food was very good and the presentation was excellent. I must comment on the quality of the produce which was outstanding; the steaks were clearly local, had been well matured and perfectly cooked. The portions were generous and the puddings were very good too - I can highly recommend the blueberry cake! The Shiraz on offer was good quality and the beer was also well kept and a 'good pint' (his words). Our only minor criticism would be the slow service. As the pub became busier, the service slowed noticeably, to the point where we had to go and ask to order puddings. The waiting staff were very polite and did apologise for our wait, but I do think this is an area where improvement could be made. We will visit again, thank you.

What a lovely welcoming pub. Perfect for those wet and wild Lake District Days and Nights. I didn't stay, just came for the food and drink. The food is A1, easily comparable to some of the top restaurants I have eaten in. Add the first class service, choice of specialty Gins and you have a winner.

Food : full English, excellent!
Dinner : steak and ale pie, excellent. Some Chinese dish , excellent. Thanks, Daz, good job in the kitchen.

Pub life: great. Locals, foreigners, staff, all fun to hang out, chat, have a laugh. A lively bunch.
Live music on Saturday night. At closing time, all is civilized and the pub quiets down for those sleeping upstairs.

Rooms : charming, well kept, cleaned and maintained (thank you Stephanie, Helen and staff)
Really comfy bed
Tea kettle and bits in the room
Decent wifi
Bathroom is quaint, shower is a but petite but you manage.

Staff is really nice and accommodating.

Love the neighborhood cat, Mack.
I would easily return. Liked it very much, stayed 2 nights.
A beautiful area.

Stayed here for 3 nights recently while hiking nearby. What a great find! The staff were so friendly and helpful. I had dinner there every evening as the food was so good. I have only good things to say about this place. Loved it!

Stayed here for 1 night in August. Great staff, comfortable and clean room. Tasty meal in evening and breakfast. Would certainly stay and eat here again. Lovely area close to steam railway and lakes. Sunny weather helped.
