Been here a few times and enjoyed it so decided to visit again on what was a misty murky day. Busy as ever but found a table with a decent view - though have never yet managed to get a window table. Service prompt and starters all good as were the mains - all 3 of us ordered different and... More

Many thanks for your review, glad you had a good lunch, sorry our barman wasn't cheerful enough, he's most upset and I've dispatched him onto an intensive smiling course. Thank you again for your thoughts. Regards Cb More

All too brief overnight stay for a friend's 50th - large party well catered for in a private room. We stayed in the Piggeries- so spacious and comfortable, tastefully decorated with every amenity a country inn could offer. It made us resolve to treat ourselves more often. Leaving having consumed a hearty breakfast looking out across hills field and a... More

The Inn at Whitewell is in a beautiful location. The building is charming and the setting hard to beat. We took a drive out on a rainy day because we knew that we would find a nice cosy spot to have a good lunch. Plus, they allow dogs which is always a bonus for us! You can't reserve a table... More

Been a few times now and food and service is always very good. The menu has some great dishes to ponder over. This is a really nice big old Inn in a great setting. Nice to take the dog in and sit in front of a real fire after a nice walk even if not dinning.

My wife and I spent a night at The Inn on 02 Jan. Parking was tricky on arrival but they had a busy lunch period. Great check-in, lovely room, excellent service throughout and although we only had a bar meal for dinner that too was excellent. Arrived for breakfast and 09:10 and only finally got served after 10:00 - even... More

Stayed here for 1 night on our way back home from Scotland. Love this place. Proper pub with proper food and luxury rooms. We had one of the lodges (23) which was spacious and decorated to a high standard. Could have stayed here for a few days if it wasn't so expensive.

My daughter in law arranged a family meal with the staff at the Inn at Whitwell. We were a large party of 16. The Inn reserved the Gallery room for us. The decorations were beautiful. The table settings perfect. The food magnificent. The staff made sure that the meals were served all together. The staff were attentive but not obtrusive.... More
