Description: The Midland is a free house with three hand-drawn pumps offering a selection of local award-winning beers, ales, traditional ciders and perrys. Cumbrians are fond of their pub food and our menu includes some of the all-time favourites: local butcher's Cumberland sausage in a giant Yorkshire pudding, lasagne made with best minced steak & red wine, ham & eggs or steak & ale pie.The Midland is known for its speciality dishes too. Daily specials can include a creamy Italian risotto, a range of Mediterranean treats in the tapas style menu, a Thai curry and there's always a selection of vegetarian specials.We aim to use as many locally-produced ingredients and make as many of our dishes on site as possible. We use Appleby Creamery's award-winning cheeses in our specialty dishes or you can have a selection as a light meal or dessert.

Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

A warm welcome, wonderful food (especially the sherry trifle gateau), stylish but comfortable surroundings. Well worth a visit.

thanks for the great review review, and pleased you liked our new dessert, available all through December!!! (we love sherry trifle but it looks a bit messy so we decided to take the ingredients and make a pretty pudding!), hope to see you again sometime.
Cheers, Clive & Amie

“Lovely”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Visited on a number of occasions during our week in Appleby and would say without a doubt that it was our favourite of the places we ate at! Sunday lunch was delicious, great to see basket meals making a comeback too! Service, cleanliness, choice all first rate. See you again next year!

“Dinner and beer”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Enjoyed healthy and substantial BBQ shrimp and salad. I love that a pub can have healthy food too. We stayed in this hotel/B & B also and had a great meal in the morning. Great customer service from the owners and their family.

“Welcoming and friendly”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

The Midland is very handy for the Settle/Carlisle railway and for the centre of Appleby. It's been refurbished reasonably recently and the rooms are fresh, clean and pleasant. Evening food was an interesting selection and a bit different from the the normal pub fare though that was there as well if you wanted it. Excellent selection of guest beers and clearly fully deserving of its 2013 Camra Award. I'd recommend it for accommodation, food and drink.
