My wife and I had dinner here, not expecting any special meals from a small town bar/pub, oh we were so wrong and completely misjudged and underestimated this beautiful place, we were welcomed by the very friendly owner and had a nice place at the windows. The menu looked promising, so my wife had the fried calamares, tender and tasty,... More

Dropped in based on reviews. Excellent food and friendly service beside an open fire - bliss. And if you do come try the raspberry sorbet - yum!!!

We ate here one night while staying at the hotel. We booked a table, a good move as it turned out as they were very busy. Despite this, the service was prompt and friendly, the food was very good, and the general ambience very pleasant. A definite step above standard pub-grub, so the slightly higher prices are value for money.... More

Great place with proper Cumbrian food that was a delight. The sticky toffee pudding is a must here but there is plenty to tempt you. Good service with a really friendly manager Richard who helps with the brekky in the morning. We stayed two nights here and you have to remember its 400 yrs old so some of the rooms... More

Just popped in for a quick drink to get out of the rain. Pub was empty but had a nice fire on the go. All the tables were reserved for later in the day - obviously a very popular place and looking at the photos of the food I can see why. Decent Lagunitas IPA in bottles was a nice... More
