Having reached half way on our day's hike I was expecting to be greeted by a friendly landlord/lady who would take an interest in where we'd been and what we were doing. No. No interest whatsoever, no cheery welcome in fact barely a word spoken by this Eastern European(?) individual. He just about managed to mumble a miserable 'goodbye'. The... More

Had the fish platter which was amazing, cooked to perfection, loved the grilled sardines. The bread was delicious. The fish cakes were tasty. Can't wait to go back

We have been to the mortal man on a number of occasions and they have never let us down. The food is really good and the staff are very polite and attentive.

We have enjoyed two nights staying in The Mortal Man with two friends while walking in the Lake District. Our rooms where excellent, clean and warm and the views were spectacular. We dined on both nights, the food was good and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The bonus was the variety of cidars and beers available.

We were lucky enough to be there for the folk sessions on Tuesday night, where anybody can join in and take it in turns to play or sing. What a fantastic... More

We wouldn't had driven past the Mortal man if it hadn't been lunchtime - and the loss would have been ours. A picturesque pub with excellent food, a good variety of good ales and ciders and a...

We ordered steak pie and chips and Haddock and chips with minted mushy peas. Both dishes had hand cut chips. When our meals arrived they looked appetising, unfortunately they looked better than...
