Loved my recent stay here - the common areas are comfortable and cosy, the food was very good in the restaurant and the rooms are nice and clean. Basic rooms, but for what you pay, it is good value. The wine we had with our meal was also very nice. Beautiful and relaxing outdoor area to sit with a drink... More

We made a last minute booking here as it was walking distance of where we were staying. Very glad we did. Delicious meal. We are both vegetarian so it's sometimes tricky but the food was amazing. I had the stumpie tart and my husband the sweet potato casserole. We were sat at a lovely table in the corner and it... More

Very friendly greeting when we arrived. The room was lovely and the food was great. We hadn't booked an evening meal in advance, but there was no problem with this. Breakfast was also great. Will definitely go back there again.

Had a lovely meal for most of us (8) but my boyfriend was served a vegetarian soup which definitely had meat in it. We mentioned it to the staff and we were told that it was a piece of onion. The soup didn't contain onion and I ate one part - it definitely had the texture of meat.

The customer is completely wrong to state that this soup contained meat. I was on duty the night in question, and I do Know the customer said there was meat in the soup which we explained was definitely not the case....the chef was also on duty and was aware of the complaint. The soup is entirely vegan, it is liquidised... More

We arrived very late on a Friday night due to traffic problems all the way from London but had rung ahead from Scotch Corner to ask if some food would be available to be told not to worry "we'll feed you". We did expect salad or sandwiches but on arrival were told to order anything we liked form the menu.... More

One night stay on way home. Clean and comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff. Great menu choice and food was beautifully presented and piping hot. Breakfast was excellent and unhurried with a lovely variety on both the cold and hot menu. Rooms spotlessly clean and very comfortable as were the residents lounges. Would recommend and definitely intend staying again.

This is a very friendly pub, with whiskeys galore. The menu is fine, and the Prosecco is divine. The bar area is perfect for those travellers wishing to indulge in a bit of Scrabble action, and the waiting staff are very accommodating. A fine find.

We recently stayed close by to this country inn and though we'd give it a go. On arrival we decided just to have a drink first and proceeded to a table outside. A little later we decided to have some food so I went in to ask for some menus, when I asked the question to the waiter who was... More

My daughter and boyfriend are currently enjoying a weeks holiday in the Lake District and had hoped for an evening meal here this evening but were continually ignored despite requests to order food. A tourist destination such as this should recognise the need for customer service, We are being encouraged to "staycation" but when we experience service such as this... More
