“Gem, don't be fooled by it's appearance”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here for the first time tonight having driven past many times. The food was fantastic, we were very pleasantly surprised. We had the tear and share and soup for starters. Carbonara and ribs for our main. Our two kids had nuggets, chips and beans. The chips were gorgeous, everything was homemade and piping hot. The young girl who served us was amazing and we wanted for nothing. Will definitely visit again next time we are at our caravan. This pub doesn't look much from the outside, the food and service was fantastic. A Must visit.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but stopped by everyday during a week stay for either a tea/coffee or a full breakfast while commuting from Barrow-in-Furness to the rest of the Lake District. The staff were friendly and helpful & genuinely tried to make you feel welcome. The food was good and reasonably priced and the place really made you feel at home. Highly recommended.

Stayed for 1 night and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Room was comfortable and clean. Food was good and reasonably priced.
Had an early start in the morning, but a continental breakfast was available as we were happy to help ourselves.
Good location for exploring the Lakes area.

we have just had 2 nights at the Rusland Pool hotel and I am driven to write a review.
My wife and I have stayed in lots of hotels over several years from the grand majestic to the small
pretentious , but this hotel is a GEM of a find.
The cleanliness if striking, as is the friendliness and the quality of the food is second to non.
The owners take a pride in their hotel and want every guest to feel special--and it works.
ALL the staff are friendly and pleasant.
It was a true pleasure to stay there.
Only 1 tip to share --take a torch as the bathroom fan comes on with the light and it can be loud in the middle of the night--but a torch keeps it quiet--though we never heard anything from other guest rooms.
The views from our room where great --open country side with cows grazing in the distance.

Room Tip: Take a torch as the bathroom fan comes on immediately with the light , and seems loud in the middle...

We lunched here on a journey to the lake district. Wr ordered two meals and drinks. The food was beautifully cooked and very reasonably priced. The toileys were clean as was the dining area. I'm not a local and I asked a question regarding Eskdale . The waitress went through to the office and printed me four pages of information including directions. I heartily recommend this pub / restaurant, great customer service. Five stars from me.
