We stayed in the 'waterside' cottage and WOW what a fantastic place. You are in the middle of nowhere with just one other cottage across the tarn. We stayed with another family (4 adults and 4 kids) and we were all very comfortable. The rooms are all huge all with own bathrooms. The kitchen area is well equipped and very modern.

We also ate in the pub and again very very impressed. The staff were all so helpfully.

We will be going again next year.

Had a lovely meal heat recently; the food was top notch. Lovely steak and ale pie, followed by sticky toffee pudding.
It's a shame that the experience was let down by the poor service. Despite booking a table in advance, they had no record of our booking when we arrived. We experienced long delays between courses, as well as between our menus being brought and our orders being taken. Each time we had to grab the attention of a waiter for any service. It wasn't even busy so there was no excuse for this. A shame really as I would not hesitate to recommend otherwise. As it is, I won't be returning.

I brought a woucher voucher for this Inn and was very pleased. I had booked a twin room and the bed had been made up as a double and the receptionist was the one who pointed this out and was very happy to get it changed. But there was no need. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was so comfy. The breakfast which was included was very hot and a good choice.
We has an evening meal there and the food is all locally produced and was amazing.
The ladies that work there were so lovely and could not do enough to help.
The only down side was the chap I think his name was Steve who served the breakfast was very miserable, would have been nice to have a smile!!!

Room Tip: If you want the free wi fi that is available in the bar ask for the front room above the bar.

we stayed in one of the cottages for a week and ate in the pub on three evening occasions. Staff were very friendly, nothing too much trouble and the food was very good. Lots of choice - not the cheapest food one could eat in a pub, but really excellent quality. We had burgers, salads, steaks and pies on different occasions - nothing but very satisfied. This really made our time at the Brown Horse very enjoyable. Thank you!

PS the cottage was lovely; great location and very well done.

A group of eight stayed for one night. The rooms varied in standard and unfortunately the shower/hot water failed in two of the four rooms. Thankfully, the quality of the food and beer helped ease some of the issues and when the bill was presented the next day the management had been fair with their reductions.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annex appear to be better.
