We stopped here for lunch after a walk around Buttermere lake last week. It was a lovely day so we were able to sit outside - just as well, as there was a big sign on the door to the bar saying "no dogs" which I found surprising in such a rural place. If the weather hadn't have been nice enough we would have gone next door to the Bridge as they had a dog friendly bar, I suspect the other ten groups of people sitting outside, all with dogs, would have done the same! The bar was quite depressing, very old fashioned no atmosphere, but the two girls behind the bar were friendly. We weren't, however, allowed to set up a tab. The food was fine, just pub grub, slightly expensive for what it was but I guess they have a captive market. I'd probably go back and sit outside again with a drink as the views from the patio were awesome, especially on such a gorgeous autumn day, but neither the food nor the bar itself were anything special.
