Thank you Jonnty for a fabulous welcome and the most relaxing break we have had in a long time at staying with you at the King George in Eskdale.

The food was delicious and prepared freshly using local produce and you could taste the difference, the portions so big that both Steve and I put on 5lbs in our 3 night stay, the breakfasts were real belly busters and not for the faint hearted. Sticky toffee pudding is highly recommended if you have any room left ! Our room was at the front and the sun blazed through the window early in the Morning and we had great weather all weekend although the forecast had been poor.
We are already planning a return and we will be booking the flat and taking our 2 Labradors next time we stay.We walked for miles after those breakfasts and on the way around the area we saw red squirrels, red deer and buzzards. We would advise you to visit the King George if you like real ales you will be spoilt for choice.

On route home and was looking for this pub after travelling on a scenic railway. Ended up stopping somewhere else but got no service and a huge queue to order so left. Thank god we did as five minutes down the road was this place. I wanted to eat most of the menu but settled on the pie as did my wife.
Huge portion and loads of good quality meat in the pie. Really good food and ales. Friendly service.

Just back from a week staying in the flat and had a fantasic time. The pub is traditional and friendly with a landlord who exudes energy and has a passion for providing great ales and good friendly service. All the other staff were friendly too and made us and our little dog feel very welcome. The beer was fantastic, with new ones to try each day. The food was so good that despite intending to self cater some of the time we were enticed by the lovely smells coming from the kitchen and ate there every evening! The pasta dishes and pies were particularly excellent. Lunches were also delicious.. The area is beautiful and as well as exploring lovely places nearby we spent many a content moment outside the pub enjoying the lovely views. To sum it up we cant wait to return!

Stopped for a bite to eat with my 2 kids in this picturesque location. Bar staff were polite and friendly if a little hard to track down at times. The food however was pretty dreadful. I had a bacon and chicken salad, the chicken being hard and dry and definitely not freshly prepared that day - felt like it had been sat in a fridge for a day or two and re-heated. The kids had a hot beef baguette, which was okay and a tune mayo baguette, which was pretty bad - just loads and loads of mayo drowning out any flavour or texture of the tuna. They also had a side of chips which was terrible -hard, burnt and again, bearing in mind this was 1 o'clock in the afternoon, felt like the previous day's leftovers warmed up. Seriously, i wouldn't feed a dog those chips! I never understand why pubs try to serve such unpalatable grub, all I expect is the equivalent of a decent, home cooked meal. Not too much to ask but unfortunately too much for this pub.
