My partner and I visited this hotel on Thursday last, on a recce to find a suitable place to spend Christmas in the lakes. We were shown around the rooms and accommodation by a lovely, friendly receptionist, who was a credit to the business. The rooms appeared comfortable and clean and we were initially optimistic about the place. After visiting further hotels, we returned for lunch in the bar/restaurant where we ordered meals. I fancied their steak and ale pie but was told that ' it wasn't ready yet' by a barman/waiter in ill fitting uniform. I then ordered cheese and onion pie with chips and veg. My partner ordered fish and chips, two simple meals for any chef or cook. The fish and chips were served on a board and would have been ok for half the price. My cheese and onion pie was disgusting and consisted of quite a good pastry on the outside but inside was a disgusting thin, runny substance and loads of square chunks of potato. There was little evidence of cheese or onion. With a soft drink each, the bill came to Just short of £28. Signs outside advertise home cooking and as we were leaving a lorry from a well known Manchester firm supplying pre-prepared food delivered a load of large cartons of chilled or frozen food. Was this the steak and ale pie perhaps .? Anyway, I didn't complain but considered the money well spent, as we intend spending our Christmas elsewhere.
