After spending the day walking around Ingleton Falls, we come here for dinner on our way home. Friendly staff, welcoming place and lovely food. We both had the homemade steak pie. It was delicious. Lovely chunky chips and vegetables were yummy too! Would recommend!

Thank you for recent review after your recent visit and the food would certainly finish off the day after a walk around Ingleton falls. The Steak Pie is one of our more popular dishes, along with Fish & Chips, and offers excellent value for money.
