Just finished a long weekend at the Bridge Inn which was a fantastic experience from start to finish. My wife, Jane and myself needed to get away from the stress of a busy Christmas and New Year and the hotel was a perfect place to relax in a friendly and charming setting with attentive and professional staff but at the same time extremely friendly going that extra mile to help you and make your stay was memorable.
The Inn has a great menu with fantastic local produce, also with a specials board which is changed daily, for the quality and quantity, it is good to see that pride in cooking and standards with the current climate have not been sacrificed, to keep a very reasonably priced menu. Every thing is home made down to the chips and onion rings. Be prepared to put on a few pounds. Breakfast was the same don't know how they do it for the price. Extensive menu and buffet style at weekends. Had bad experiences with buffets in the passed ( premier inn )
but not here.
Try some of the local ales served by a friendly bar manager called Andrew, who has great local knowledge and a good sense of humour. One tip don't ask for a soggy bottom after ordering a sneck lifter you might get some weird looks ! LOL
The room we stayed in was bright and airy with all the mod cons. With all the special touches , even down to real coffee. The shower was great, none of this going hot and cold or running out off hot water, the owners have put a lot of time and effort into making the rooms comfortable with high end facilities.
The location is great being only a couple of miles from the Cumbrian coast and in easy distance from all the lake district attractions.
The over all experience was amazing and we would go back in a heart beat. Nearly forgot your dog will be made as welcome.
if booking this phone the Inn direct as if done on line the Inn loses money and with the all ready great tariffs they could do without this.
Many thanks for a great holiday Andy and Jane from East Kilbride.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The award-winning Bridge Inn, once a modest mail coach’s halt, is now a fine, well-situated, comfortable country inn offering hospitality to all travelers and visitors being close to Wastwater (Britain’s favourite view) and Scafell. Well behaved dogs are also welcome. The Western Lakes and Fells are spectacular and here in this quiet valley there is still the peace and tranquility that should be Lakeland. There are still more sheep than people!!! Excellent "REAL" food, "REAL" Ales, Log Fires and a "reet good welcome." Standards of accommodation today's travelers expect. "Home from home for the tired business person and the weary fell walker." ... more less
