“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

The good lady and I visited for lunch having been for dinner with friends and family on a couple of previous occasions.
We checked out the lunch menus on the websites at a couple of its contemporaries, but weren't particularly inspired.
Nothing especially flash, but a great election, well cooked and beautifully presented. All served with efficiency in a great setting. Fancy a great pub lunch at a classic Lakeland Inn? Look no further.

My partner and I visited the Brown Horse in February of this year after purchasing a 2 night stay on WOWCHER. Having never visited the Lakes before i wasnt too sure what to expect but to say this hotel exceed my expectations would be an understatement. Our room was perfectly clean, extremely cosy with a lovely view of the surrounding area and a beautiful modern bathroom attached. Every thoughtful detail was covered including hot chocolate as well as tea and coffee supplied as well as a pass for the local spa which allows you to visit free of charge, always a bonus! On our first night we decided to try the resturant here, safe to say after the meal we recieved we didnt eat anywhere else for the duration of our stay! Affordable meals but outstanding quality, with free range locally sourced products. The staff were welcoming and friendly and couldnt do enough to help you. Furthermore the breakfast we recieved which was included in the price of the stay was also exceptional. It was nice to be given the choice of hot food to order from the menu as well as continental selection that was on offer and I was also pleased to see that salmon was an option and not just the generic full english that most places offer. Overall, I can honestly say that this is one of the best experiences of a weekend trip that I have had and I would recommend this place to anyone. Its not often I say this, but the Brown Horse Inn is flawless, already in the process of booking our next visit. Thank you for making my partners birthday such a memorable occasion :)

I highly recommend booking in to this B&B, The room was lovely and well decorated with a modern shower room attached. Breakfast was tasty and filling and all the staff were excellent. The food on an evening was the best throughout our whole holiday and reasonably priced for what you get !! would not hesitate to rebook for our next holiday.

We stayed for 2 nights with friends. Amazing place good food, drink and staff. As previously said a bit out of the way. We traveled by train from Glasgow and taxis were expensive but worth the visit. My hubby is BIG real ale fan so was VERY impressed by beers brewed on premises.

Stayed here for 2 nights end July. What a little gem. Superb place. Quaint. Idyllic. Staff were all top class. Could not have been more welcoming. Food was out of this world. Their own free range meats and veg making the dining experience fantastic! Be warned - large portions!!! Large range of breakfast options! A bit out of the way so you defo need a car/transport of your own but if you are in the Lakes, if you want to experience it's beauty, you need your own transport!
