Summary

“The lovely terrace has a great view of the Fell and on a sunny day this Lakeland pub is packed with walkers”. “A trusted old favourite” it’s worth the crush for its “good range of beers” and “imaginative” fare (“more pub food than the restaurant variety”) – “keep to the smaller portions unless you have a huge appetite!”
