This relates to the restaurant only, not the hotel. Called in on the way back from the fells the day before, and had a drink and a snack at the bar (which features a real fire and good ales, thought the drinks are pricey). Hot chocolate especially good according to 11yr old son. Thought the food coming past looked good, so decided to return for dinner next day.
Sadly the restaurant part lacks a real fire (is gas imitation) but is a nice room all the same with tables reasonably well spaced. Menu offers a good choice for all the family, but theme is local and seasonal. The haunch of venison (for 2 to share, though would have done 3!) was exceptional.
Can't comment on the hotel really, other than that the residents lounge looked very inviting, as did the spa/swimming pool. Will come back to stay the night when we can.
I gather the hotel was completely refurbished following the 2010 floods, and there has clearly been a lot of money spent on creating a modern family hotel.
