We were invited to sit in the bar whilst a table became available in the restaurant. Drinks were brought over, together with menu's. One of our party were... More

Real ale, fires and pie gravy and chips. What more can you ask for. Well actually the Lakeland Lager was rather good too.

Been visiting this pub when we are in the area for over 25 years. Called in this weekend and got a good Sunday lunch for a reasonable price. They do have other options on a Sunday, both vegetarian and a couple of other mains for those who don't want a roast. A very traditional pub. Friendly landlady and staff.
