Harden's says

Family-run 17th Century coaching inn with rooms at the foot of the Howgill Fells; ‘field to fork’ sourcing of ingredients and Japanese design features make this pub restaurant stand out.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A stylish £2.5m refurbishment complete with Japanese influences adds pizzazz to this 17th century coaching inn with rooms at the heart of this lovely town, in beautiful countryside, bordering the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. Reports are not as numerous as we would like, but the well-sourced cooking (with an emphasis on local beef) is uniformly well rated.

"A great surprise to enjoy Sunday lunch here. Main course portions are huge so you may want to follow our example of 2 starters and a shared main! We had wild Lakeland Venison which didn't need a knife. Lobster and Summer vegetables was crammed with lobster. Good desserts too /egg custard and Sticky toffee. Of course they have roasts too."

"Drove some way to visit this restaurant/hotel and it was worth it. The ingredients were all local, the wild venison was outstanding and the lobster starter was exceptional value for money. Be aware that portions are enormous - it's Yorkshire - so don't over-order."

"Great food with an interesting menu offering seasonal English dishes with a Japanese twist. This is definitely a cut above with excellent staff serving quality food in a relaxed and friendly environment. We couldn’t fault the service or food."
