#3 of 4 B&Bs / Inns in Askham
A 17th century village pub with 6 spacious bedrooms, a restaurant and a bar. Expansive options for local adventure with easy to follow routes, all fuelled by a wholesome country breakfast and healthy, hearty meals cooked using produce from the kitchen gardens at the nearby sister establishment, the newly Michelin starrred/ 3 AA rosette-rated Askham Hall. It’s on the doorstep of a newly-established ‘Health Barn’ in an 18th century rustic barn. The Health Barn offers a range of therapeutic/relaxation treatments and workshops. That includes a state-of-the-art flotation tank, which will be the only one of its kind in Cumbria.

A friend told me I would receive good pub grub here. He was wrong. It was ‘way above’ good. The menu was excellent, the cooking fantastic and the gooseberry dessert the best I have had. Staff were friendly and excellent in all respects. Fabulous!

We should have checked before booking dinner through Askham Hall, where we were staying. They only do a menu of three courses for GBP45, rather than a la carte. There is a choice of (I think) 4 items per starter, main, and desert. Food was very good and service friendly and efficient until the place filled up, when it slowed appreciably. In the end, we enjoyed he experience, despite initially looking for 1-2 courses rather than a full dinner. Other visitors seemed surprised that this option was not available, so it might be worthwhile trying other options in the area if you only want a snack. Still, this is a nice place to eat and can be recommended.

Hi Robert, thank you for your recent feedback which is much appreciated. The Queen's Head is a small pub if you would prefer a more extensive menu we'd suggest you try our sister pub the George and Dragon Clifton, nevertheless it's good to hear that you enjoyed the food.

We stayed here for two nights around New Year’s Eve and had a fantastic time. We stayed in room 5 which is bigger than it seems on the photos, has a huge and very comfy bed, great tea and coffee making facilities (not mentioned on the website) and feels overall very luxurious. Everything from thick towels to slippers and bathrobes made the stay feel like a proper treat and made the price feel justified. There’s another pub/ B&B in the village (Punchbowl) where our friends stayed, which was also charming, cheaper, but less comfortable and missing the nice extras. We loved the Queens Head. The room was spotlessly clean, newly and tastefully refurnished with great toiletries, thick towels - little thoughtful touches that made you feel special. Breakfast was great too with nice cooked menu choices and a cold buffet. Staff were very friendly and made you feel very welcome. We had dinner one night too which was very good (recommend the pies).

We tried to book online and encountered several issues. Opted for booking by telephone and agan had issues re correct room rate so hotel still seems to be having teething issues. However, we did ask twice for a quiet room but room 1 is not a quiet room at all. The ladies public bathroom is opposite, the bar is next door and traffic noise from the road is clearly audible.... On a plus side, the breakfast was delicious and a great server plus the room is lovely and large. Glad we tried the hotel out whilst visiting the Lowther xmas market but please sort out room noise and other issues we experienced re wrong menu being sent out to us...thank you

This review is only of a enjoyable pub lunch, my brother had a local sausage and medley of vegetable which he said was excellent, I had the pulled local lamb with spicy dressings served on a flat bread which I enjoyed however I was a little disappointed with the lack of flavour in the lamb perhaps overpowered by the spices but on the whole a pleasant lunch, clean and comfortably appointed quaint old bar and pleasant lady who served us, just a pity we couldn’t sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. Dog friendly which is another great point.
