          They'd run out of veggie burgers but that was probably because they sounded so amazing!! Good food, pleasant staff and easy parking across the road. Will happily return. And the beer was very welcome too!

          I've stayed here before, prior to the new owner taking over last year. I took 3 others who hadn't been there before and they were really happy with my recommendation on all counts. I knew what to expect in respect of the rooms and understand they are to be updated which will encourage me to definitely go back again. The good used to be good, but it's even better I would certainly not hesitate in recommending it. I always enjoy pubs etc where you can have fun with the staff and from previous stays this had also improved, as there was one female member of staff who was certainly great fun. If they get rid of her we won't go back ha ha I only have one very minor bit of critique. After 2 long tiring days out when bed called, we could still hear the music through the floor, which when I'm a light sleeper isn't great.

          Hi Ashley and Andy you might remember us, Ken and Barbara who stayed in August 2years running at the lodge at Somerset farm. You were hoping that everything was in place for your move to Patterdale. Glad to see that it all worked out for you. We wish you all the very best and hope we can pay you a visit in 2017. Sorry we don't do Facebook!! Regards
