Stayed 2 nightsunder the Askham Hall Allium posh pub grub weekend deal. Menu on the Friday night in the Queens was great. Excellent steak from the Hall's own short horn heard. Breakfasts were supurb with all local ingrediants. Room was spacious and really comfortable. Service through out our stay was superb, they couldn't do enough for us or my guide dog. Special thanks to Louise who was particularly helpful
My friend and I visited this welcoming pub after a glorious walk up a hill to view the snow capped fells and Ullswater. Added highlight was the sight of many beautiful fell ponies grazing freely with the backdrop of that amazing scenery. When we entered the pub the wonderful warmth of a huge fire greeted us. Staff were very pleasant. We were only there for a snack but the Sunday roast looked excellent. I had one of the nicest scones I have had anywhere. A traditional triangle shaped fruit scone came with beautiful home made jam, butter and clotted cream. Delicious! My friend indulged in the orange and almond tart with icecream which she thoroughly enjoyed too. Apart from the meals menu there was a display of cakes and tray bakes to choose from. We both had a drink too, the beer and ale were both of excellent quality. A super end to a glorious walk in our amazing part of the world which is the magnificent Cumbria. …
A potentially lovely pub in a delightful village, extremely slow service and staff seemed very disorganised. It took ages to get a drink, fed up waitin, so gave up and went to the Punch Bowl down the road.
A beautiful pub in a quiet picturesque village just off the main route up to Scotland. We stayed the night with our two dogs who were made very welcome. The staff were super friendly and helpful, we ate in the bar area - comfortable sitting areas and delicious food. Our bedroom was fantastic, a huge four poster with super soft sheets, large bathroom with a bath and shower. Very peaceful and comfortable stay. Highly recommend and hope we will go back. Left my mouse mat and they contacted me to say I had and posted it back - all so kind. Don’t go past without dropping in.
I’m so happy to have found the Queens Head. I always need a dog friendly place to lay my head near the M6 and this refurbished pub is a gem. It’s a 17th century village pub offering several stylish bedrooms. I’ve stayed twice with family and we found the beds very comfortable. The staff are really friendly and helpful. No evening meals are served but the sister pub 6 miles away is good. Breakfast with the newspapers in the bar was great. The dogs had treats, a blanket and a ball! The village is very pretty too. Love it and I’ll definitely be back.
