We stopped here whilst on the Coast to Coast walk. Welcoming staff and pleasant bar area, but felt that the rooms were slightly overpriced for the quality, and also slightly disappointed with the slow service and quality of the vegetarian evening meal on the night we were there (but it did seem a very busy evening in the bar).

Thank you for your feed back, it is much appreciated. I will ensure the staff are aware that service could have been better and that the Chef checks that there is always a choice of vegetarian dishes available. More

Had stayed here once before so deliberately booked it for two nights as there is nowhere dog friendly at Orton. Not disappointed in any way. Superb food and very comfortable room. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful .an outstanding place to stay. Beautiful setting

A lovely shower, WiFi and space for bags in the room. There were loads more rooms upstairs than anticipated. The hourly church bells through the night were annoying, but they thoughtfully provided earplugs by each bed. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit salad and very tasty scrambled eggs.

A real find, the Crown and Mitre is located in a picturesque town across the road from a stone church whose bells chime the hours. The room was clean and simple, with deliciously comfortable beds. The pub downstairs was convivial, and the meal was fresh and healthy with lots of good veg. The walk out of Bampton to Shap is... More

It is never good when a guest does not enjoy their stay with us, we do take these kind of comments seriously. I must point out though, that as a small pub, it is not and never has been our responsibility to collect customers doing the C2C. It is a service that we don't and never have offered. There is...

Stayed here on night 5 of C to C walk. Rooms clean and linen and towels spotless. My dinner of carrot and coriander soup and steak and ale pie were superb. I complimented the chef on her cooking. Best meal yet.

Arrived at the Crown & Mitre after a very hard day on the Coast to Coast. We were made very welcome and shown the table where we would be eating later. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We went down for an excellent meal and then retired for a very good nights sleep. Breakfast was excellent. All in all,... More
