Just back home after a delicious 3 course sunday lunch of vegetable soup,roast beef and raspberry roulade .The food was excellent with good portions well worth the 45 minutes drive up there.We will certainly be back again.

We were staying at Newbiggin farm campsite just down the road so the pub was handy: after getting the tent up we headed off for some grub and a pint. I had a mixture of the Waberthwaite sausage and the Bewleys Cumberland sausage (both delicious) and my partner had the cod and chips which he thoroughly enjoyed. We tried the Lakeland Lager which is a really tasty pint and would defo recommend trying if you like your lager. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere from the landlord and locals. Well worth a visit if you're up that way.

we were staying about a mile away from the pub in a rented farm house the information pack said the pub served real ales and good food (is there a better combination?) our party 10 of us made our way along the back roads so had built up a thirst by the time we arrived we were not dissappointed a great choice of ales and ciders we all ordered food and again we were not dissappointed we would visit again if we stayed near by.

We only visited to eat our evening meal so can't comment on anything else. First thing we noticed us it was very tired and run down inside. Nevermind, we thought, it's all about the food.
We had been told it was "good pub grub". It's Is not. The filled Yorkshire pudding contained a tasteless gravy and bland turkey. The steak pie lacked the richness one would expect from such a dish. The trifle was unbelievably poor. Literally cheap tinned fruit with tinned custard poured over the top and whipped cream over that. Nothing set. I refused to pay for that. One positive, my home made fish pie tasted nice. But seriously, don't bother, unless you are desperate.

Stopped here twice, once for a quick sandwich and the second time for a full meal. The sandwich was an excellent Cumberland sausage and came with a very reasonable coleslaw. For the meal the jumbo cod was truly jumbo and came in a very light and crispy be batter. My wife had a rare steak that was cooked rare (not medium rare as often happens). Definitely worth a stop for food and beer.
