Lovely, homely pub. Stopped for two nights and found this the perfect base to explore the lakes. Lovely staff added to the friendly feel and the breakfasts were amazing. Rooms basic but welcoming and always warm. Planning our next visit in the summer.

Just back from 2nd visit and can't wait to go again. Visited with our 4 year old daughter and Staffy pup Dave. Everything from rooms to location is superb, food is top class, especially porridge. Staff are lovely and you are assured of a warm welcome and excellent service. Weather was horrendous but still had a fantastic time.

We stayed two nights over New Year (family of 4 plus two dogs). Our stay was excellent, starting with the New Years Eve 'Gala Dinner'. The food, room and atmosphere was superb all the way through. This was all underpinned with warm welcome from Heather, Abi and all the other staff. Highly recommend!
