Lovely pub with a traditional interior and really good food. A great selection of real ales are available and there's a nice dining area. Worth a visit.

We weren't very hungry as we'd had a cream tea earlier. We sat down outside in the sunshine and ordered a bowl of chips. Every time we have eaten here the food is always superb.The best chips I have eaten for ages.

Tried to get in this pub/restaurant a couple of times. Glad we booked for our last night in the Lakes. The food was very good as was the service.

Well cooked food in a wonderfully english atmospheric pub. The tables are quite close together but you never felt rushed to finish and the staff were always on hand to take extra orders for food and drink etc. We will return!!
