Visited as a couple on a Thursday night in November 2016. Easy to park near the pub in the village square. The pub was busy even at 5pm and it was a good job we booked. Thursday was pie night (although the full menu was on offer). We had a starter and main pie course. Both were very good quality,...

Lovely village setting, nice decor, roaring fires, friendly staff, creative and extensive menu. The kids menu is simple but crammed with favourites with our eldest son was so full he couldn't finish his pudding. Lovely food, fabulous pies, traditional ales. Excellent all round. Will be back.

If you are visiting Cumbria it is well worth a detour to visit The Fetherston in Kirkoswald. This pub produces the best homemade pies i have ever had. The food all round is amazing and reasonably priced. Dog friendly in the bar area, very popular. Real ales, just a fab place to visit.

Found this place on trip advisor as we had already called in 2 places we liked but there was no food...on a Saturday lunchtime???

After seeing lots of really positive reviews, we booked online to eat here on a Sunday evening, and had a meal that was every bit as good as other reviewers reported. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the food was really wonderful - plentiful, tasty and very filling! The gammon was really tender and a very good sized...

We visited with a large group in July. As per usual, we were bursting at the seems after our visit. The food is fantastic and everything was cooked to perfection. Even the fussy eater loved his meal! All of the staff were friendly and accommodating, too. We will be back!

We attend on Monday evening for the new burger evening. The food was fantastic. You can personalise your meal to suit your own taste. If you don't fancy burger there is a small menu, with alternative choices. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will come again.
