We stayed at the Swinside Farmhouse across the road, and ate both nights at the Swinside Inn. First night as a couple, the second night there was a group of 10. Both nights the food was delicious cooked to a high standard and very reasonable

Great food with real fires, good quality ales and a very warm welcome. All the rooms are well furnished and decorated and the views are stunning. They are also dog friendly.

We went here for a birthday meal based on the reviews on here and I feel I must write a review to let others know our experience. We ordered steak and ale pie and it was awful. The service was also poor. It seemed like...More

Roaring fire, warm welcome, although no mulled wine. Good ales, and good views of the valley. Many nooks and corners to settle and uneven floors to add authenticity. May have to book at weekends, but go, it’s worth it.

Nice looking pub, nicely done out and the staff were friendly Such a shame about the food. We had Sunday dinner which wasn't great at all. The yorkshires weren't fresh and the whole meal resembled more of a reheated dinner with over cooked meat. We...More
