This is one of my favourite, enigmatic Lake District pubs in what I believe is the most beautiful valley in this area. Our previous visits over the last few years have led to glowing reviews but sadly on this occasion, in spite of a pretty...More

Good spacious room - a little on the cool side. BUT the beer here is better than the other 2 places close by. There are an outside sitting option for summer and days with sun.

Having read a few negative review we thought of popping in to o.d.g for a pint and then eat back in the tent. Pint were good, nice old pub with open fire. Saw the food coming out and decided it looked nice so went back...More

I love this place for a post-walk pint on a nice day, sitting outside and taking in the fabulous Langdale views, but the food is poor, particularly the (single, unimaginative)vegetarian option. These guys seem to take their custom for granted given the fabulous location. Come...More

We stayed at Great Langdale campsite and frequented this pub a few times especially after a long walk which included Bowfell. Great beers on and a great atmosphere especially with a live open mic night on one of the nights

Stayed at the nearby National Trust campsite. Ate here for 4 nights. Good hearty food with big portions. Ideal after a day in the hills. Fairly standard menu but I don't like all that lah-di-dah stuff. Reasonable selection of local ales that are kept well....More

Called in a couple of times recently. Food and beer as above but 2 of the bar staff seemed rather put out to have to serve customers. Made you feel like they were doing you a favour but young girl was fine. In the end...More

I have stayed in the ODGH 4 times now, next week will be the 5th time. So what draws me? Well it's not the ease of access, as the Dungeon Ghyll is off the main road, down a B road and then a couple of...More

I visited this pub with two friends as we were staying in the nearby camp site. We ate at the pub on two occasions. The slow cooked lamb dish with mash was the highlight. Very good value for the portion size and perfect after a...More

I am staying at the ODG next week, if I remember (I have a dodgy brain) I will ask for you. Then I will try to remember to reply here. All this remembering, dear me.

Dear Mr. Walker I think you have the wrong venue perhaps you are thinking of the Langdale timeshare. The Old Dungeon Ghyll is a seventeenth century building with no pools, downstairs rooms or lift I'm afraid, I do feel that... More
