We ordered. and looked forward to our meal. The mussels arrived and were over cooked with some unopened mussels. the other started were good. Soup and Prawns. The... More

Visited here recently for a meal after hearing excellent reviews about the food. We walked in and were greeted by a friendly barman who pointed us in the direction of the restaurant after serving us our drinks. The menu is very limited but features lots of locally sourced produce which is pretty impressive. I opted for the only vegetarian option... More

At first glance the outside of the GnD is not all that appealing. However, enter and all your fears will disappear. This is a lovely pub, restaurant and hotel. The room was small but quaint. A little low on power sockets for any business people wanting to work, but that's unlikely to be a concern once you enter the bar... More

We stopped here on way back from a weekend away in the lake district where the hotel and food was extremely poor and disappointing. This place was a delight and meant we ended the weekend on a high. The service was quick and attentive and the food was fresh and tasty with just the right portion sizes. We will definitely... More

I last ate here 7 or 8 years ago and it has stuck in my mind as a 'must go again next time we're here' -well today was the next time! We couldn't fault it, from the friendly welcome, the choice of eating in the bar or restaurant (chose the restaurant, really nice atmosphere) to the choice and quality of... More

Went for Sunday lunch. Left it a bit late booking for the restaurant but they found us a table in the bar area. The service was great from the initial greeting, to being attentive during the meal and the farewell. The food was a higher standard and quality to most pubs we've been to which justified the higher price and... More

Have eaten here twice, loved the first visit for early evening meal but the menu had gone a bit mad when we returned for a lunch some months later, and presentation seemed to have now overtaken taste. Will probably give it another go, but if it misfires again, will chalk it up as inconsistent (so often an issue for Cumbrian... More

Me and my partner decided to try the 60 day matured Rumps. The steaks were perfectly cooked and were very good quality. The service was friendly. Overall a faultless meal that exceeded our expectations, if we come back to the area then a visit will most definitely be in order.

I had an excellent lunch here without booking; they do a three course meal for £20, an absolute bargain considering the quality of the food; this is no average pub, this really is a cut above the rest. My Haggis starter was elegantly resented with salad, followed by delicious sausages with accompaniments, followed by rhubarb bakewell tart with spiced ice-cream.... More
