Spur of the moment decision to have lunch here after hiking along the river to Cauldron Snout. What a superb location and friendly people. We were warmly welcomed and and our order taken promptly. Beautiful sunny day so the four of us had lunch in the garden with Cronkley Fell in the background. Quality of food was excellent and the soup tasted delicious. We didn't want to leave. I can highly recommend this gem of a hotel for service, quality and situation.
