“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!”
“Magnificent views from the garden complement the first-class, imaginative food” (and in “ridiculously big portions”) at this “truly excellent” timber-beamed Lakeland pub; add in “great warm fires” and a “friendly vibe” and it “can get very busy” – “get there early”.
“Wholesome yet inventive dishes, splendid beers, great warm fires and a friendly atmosphere” – one reporter neatly sums up the charms of this remote Lakeland inn.
It’s not hard to see why fans of this “out-of-the-way” inn regard it as “the ultimate ‘safe’ Lakeland destination”, given its “great value for money, fantastic location, excellent beer, and cosy interior too!”
