“A frosty reception ”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 via mobile

Decent old fashioned pub which is great for walkers/campers. We arrived here at ten past nine and were told in no uncertain words that the kitchen was closed. The gentleman didn't even let us have a bowl of chips despite the pub still being full with people eating. A little bit more flexibility with timings would go a long way.

“great lunch in the best bar in langdale”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

called in for a quick beer & some lunch. Received a warm welcome from the bar staff who provide a great selection of cask beers. I opted for a beef chilli baked potato as a light lunch. This arrived quickly but was not a lite lunch given that I was greeted with a full plate of chilli , salad & a lovely cooked potato. The chilli was lovely flavours & spiced & finished with dark chocolate. Can't wait to go back to try something else

“A bit dear!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We always call in here when walking or staying in the Langdales, sometimes for food or maybe just a drink. We called in on our last stay in the Langdales to eat but thought the prices a little high for what on offer so while enjoying our drinks and the place moved on elsewhere to eat this time.

“Welcoming”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

After a full day's walking in the Langdales, soaked to the skin after copious amounts of rain this place is a welcoming sight. It basically resembles a barn with wooden bench seating and a bar. It is the perfect place for wet and sometimes muddy hikers to call in and quench their thirst with a pint of real ale. No airs and graces here just good old fashioned hospitality. Something that goes amiss in other tourist laden establishments in the Lake District.
