A truly unique inn with an atmospheric interior that creates a wonderful all round experience. A beautiful location and with excellent hearty food. Staff could not be more friendly and helpful. Five stars.

We loved the food here and enjoyed several delicious meals at the inn when we stayed in nearby Sedbergh.This is a temperance pub, but they serve great non alcoholic drinks and you can take your own wine etc. The Cross Keys is in a beautiful spot and you can eat outside on a nice day. They serve a delicious desert...

I was here for dinner after a long day of walking the hills. This is a centuries old building with lots of history and is being run as a Temperance inn. When we went the pub was not that busy with just a few other patrons. No alcohol is served but you can take your own and drink from the...

Stopped for lunch after a walk to acutely spout what a little gem this place is! Really old fashioned inside and a nice view from the conservatory. Food was lovely I had a BLT and chips with gravy. All of it delicious and fresh. They don't serve alcohol but have an extensive unusual selection of soft drinks. Thoroughly enjoyed it...

It is a temperance inn so no alcohol...

It is always special to stay in a "house" with a very interesting history and find ourselves in a quiet, beautiful location within a few miles of the busy M6 - what a contrast! The owner was very hospitable, the breakfast delicious and it was a great pleasure to watch the birds and red squirrel within a few metres of...

We stayed here for the weekend and had dinner on both nights. Our room was comfortable, very clean and quintessentially English making for some good restful sleep. Breakfast is freshly cooked to order and sets you up for the day. Our evening meals were delicious. Expect excellent home cooking. The rabbit pie is very good!! In fact all the dishes...

Quintessential English charm at its best. A delightful and tasteful place to eat homemade cakes whilst soaking in the breath taking views of Cautley Spout and the hills beyond. Well worth the effort to get to this wee out of the way spot.

Do not be put off by the word temperance: the first thing the waitress will ask you if if you want glasses, for BYOB is perfectly admissible.
