Description: The White Horse Inn and Bunkhouse is a cosy Inn located at the foot of Blencathra a few miles outside Keswick near Threlkeld. Real fires, fantastic local ale, British pub food and a warm welcome. We are also dog friendly.

Stayed 3 nights in the bunkhouse at the back of the pub and ate here every night. Luckily the food is fantastic. Had the steak burger, haddock and chips and steak and ale pie - every meal was delicious, filling and came in good time, regardless how busy the pub was.

Just what you need if you've just come off Blencathra after a good day in the fells. Only minor gripe is they stop serving drinks without much warning, but if you have a meal here you'd be pushed to find anything better nearby. Also very accessible off the busy road.

After a hard morning Fell Running we needed refuelling and so we decided to visit the White Horse Inn. One look at what other diners were eating and it was a simple choice. The Roast Beef for Sunday Lunch. This is simply the most satisfying satisfying Sunday Lunch I have ever had in the Lakes. The Beef was fantastic. I normally prefer rare beef but this was super tender, thick,soft, super tasty beef in thick gravy. There was a lovely Yorkshire pudding and so much veg. The Beer and Cider was first class. The service was lovely. The food came within minutes. Will we go back? We can hardly wait. We just need to run over some more mountains first!

Staying at a local campsite and walking all day, the White Horse has been the perfect end to our days. We have eaten here every eve this week and the food is outstanding! We have had Giant Yorkshire Pud with Steak & Ale, Lasagne, Mixed Grill, Sausage & Mash, Steak & Ale Pie, Chicken Curry, Fish & Chips and, saving the best til last, Shoulder of Lamb. Homemade hearty food with generous portions. You simply couldn't ask for more.

The pub is dog friendly and the staff are welcoming, helpful and friendly.

The only thing that lets the place down is the damp and cold ladies toilet

Ate here on both occasions we stayed in the accommodation.. it is a real pub, roaring fires and a lovely welcome. The menu has a good variety of food and the food is fantastic. Proper portions for hungry people without too many of the un-necessary trimmings other establishments tend to add. Well worth a visit
