We arrived midweek for a two day break and were met by Jess on reception who immediately made us feel very welcome. This set the tone for an outstanding stay. The rooms were large, light, airy and also very clean. At breakfast we overlooked the lake, there was plenty of choice and cooked breakfast was delicious. Our evening meal of...

From the minute we checked in staff were all warm and friendly. Everything was spotlessly clean, spacious room, breakfasts were huge and very tasty. We ate dinner here too. Portions were large and delicious. Staff enquired if we were happy with our meals and made sure everything was ok. Thank you to all staff for ensuring we enjoyed our stay....

Having stayed several times before, it was nice to have the opportunity to revisit after the closure due to flooding. They are nothing if not resilient here and have to suffer occasionally for the stunning location on the lake. The stay was as good as ever. The single room 25 has a lovely bathroom with bath and a great power...

Had lunch here. Very good food. Recommend chowder excellent. Fish and chips also good. Good choice of wines and beer. Staff very helpful. There are steps up to the bar area so difficult if poor mobility. Also gets very busy. Would recommend this eatery

Stopped for lunch. Nice location and great decor but found it a bit unwelcoming. There is a weird queue system at the bar which means you may and up waiting outside!?? Some staff were really friendly and some quite the opposite which made it a little intimidating. Food was just about ok. Ham sandwich a bit dry and not really...

We stopped here for lunch on our drive around the Lakes. We had Camembert with bread to share and then a pork sandwich & prawn sandwich. Food arrived quite quickly and was very tasty. It was a lovely sunny autumn day and the view of the lake was lovely. Food was reasonably priced too, about £25 including 2 cokes. We...

Came her for dinner, was dog friendly which was great and the food was lovely. The staff were really friendly too and the bar had a good selection of real ale. The place had a great atmosphere and was a wonderful evening out. Really well priced, and was in a beautiful setting.

I know the English love a queue, but single file out of the door in a pub? Seems a bit extreme! Nevertheless, it was a nice sunny day so we sat outside and the setting is lovely. The beer was good and the baked camembert with a selection of breads really hit the spot.

I went with my daughter and we ordered a sticky toffee pudding for her and a pint for myself. They asked where I was sitting and told me that because I had ordered food I would have to sit at another table. I then paid for my order and they found a table for me and we moved there. After...
