Knowing what is in your dishes is a must if you have a food allergy. 10/10 for the Britannia. Making a special dish for wife was greatly appreciated. Thanks. Service first class. Special fried fish and chips were delicious.

We booked the day before on impulse wanting a quiet chilled out weekend. We weren't disappointed! The Inn is lovely full of olde worlde charm and the staff are all extremely polite, helpful and welcoming. The beers not bad either!

Stopped here to catchup with friends. Lovely pub with a friendly atmosphere. Even though it was a busy Sunday afternoon our food promptly and was freshly made. We enjoyed savoury tuna and Cumbrian egg sandwiches with a big basket of chips. Delicious.

Always packed so that tells its only story about how popular this pub is with day walkers and those whoa re staying in the adjacent Langdale Lodges. It oozes character and charm, serves delicious food throughout the day and evening and has a great selection of real ales, sprits and wines. Its even dog friendly, and has a quiz night...

I cannot praise enough the staff. They have been so welcoming, helpful and friendly. the location is spot on as it doesn't take long to get across from the M6, plenty of fantastic walks from the doorstep. Our room had been very recently refurbished and was cosy and beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. Fantastic bathroom with piping hot powerful shower....

We called in after a days walking and wanted something hot and filling so ordered the steak, ale and mushroom pie, we weren't disappointed as the pie virtually filled the dinner plate and with the accompanied chips I was unable to add any of the fresh vegetables. Fantastic place, great service and amazing food - we will be back on...
