I rocked up at this place after being told by one of the sellarfield police officers that it was bang on for grub,he then warned me about the landlord!!!!!I was stranded on the hgv park so wasn't familiar with the area,on entering the Mare I was greeted by a wary looking bloke,i asked if he accepted card payments and he said that he did with a minimum spend of a tenner,no problem there,but wot followed was like something out of faulty towers,he is by no way rude or aggressive,but insists on calling you SIR all the time.the food though is top notch and I would say very reasonable,i had the sirloin which was cooked to perfection,as were the home cooked chips and the veg was brill.oh yeah and so was the onion rings and the mushrooms,good night.

Nice country pub/restaurant...Great food, good menu with nice specials. Sunday carvery one of the best around. Staff can be a bit hit and miss with service, and long queues at the bar at times, so hence the loss of one star!

Special promotional events nights fairly good too (eg bonfire night etc) although you need to get your food early or you might end up with something different to eat than what's advertised.

I was so impressed with the quality of food in the restaurant of this pub. Set in the picturesque village of Beckermet. The pub has a lovely restaurant. I'm never really impressed with a carvery, however this was great. Good fresh food, excellent 'real' roast potatoes and a good selection of meat.There are lots of sauces to add to your meal to, horseradish, mint, cranberry etc.. The restaurant does good clever British and north European food also. Very impressed And a big plus is that it has Wainwright's bitter on tap.

We visited here last Friday evening with friends and I would take others there too. The food was amazing and I had one of the best steaks I have ever had. The chips are wonderful too, homemade. We had a few games of snooker afterwards and the pub was quite busy and relaxed.
Definately going back and this place would be one of my first choices to take visitors of mine. It's a bit pricey but worth every penny.
They even serve non alcoholics beer which another reason I went to this pub.
