We arrived too early to check in which we knew and planned to have some lunch, when I said hi to the barman and explained we were staying for 3 nights, he simply said "well you can't get into your rooms till 2pm" he was really rude, not a good start. The rooms were dated and really small, we don't...

I really thought we would love this place after reading the reviews etc. We love dog friendly accommodation and pubs as ours comes everywhere with us. We stayed for 2 nights with our dog recently. After reading reviews on trip advisor and facebook etc we requested room 8 when booking which was one of the two rooms with a balcony....

The staff, the pub, the food here is fantastic but we were very disappointed with the accommodation. At £92 for 2 people it is very overpriced. The room was dated, shabby and in need of some serious TLC. We weren't even asked if everything had been ok when we checked out. We shan't stay there again.

My husband and I dined here a couple of times and the food was good. On our last visit as soon as I cut into my fish there was something I couldn't cut. So I pulled it out to find it was a long piece of cling film! I went to find someone to complain to and gave them the...

We were staying at a campsite near Crook in the Lake District and one evening visited The Watermill Inn at Ings for our early evening meal. This pub serves food all day so there is no need to wait until 6pm to order.It is family friendly and there is an extensive menu and a specials board too. My wife had...

This was the third time we have stayed here but our last visit was a few years back. First of all, this is a great place for real ale and it's lovely to see a pub that caters so well for dogs (even though we don't have one!) The food on offer is mostly fairly typical pub food, but good...

We visited the Watermill on our way up to stay at a lodge in Troutbeck. The staff were welcoming to us and our dog- he was even given a few treats by one of the staff. We had nachos with chilli and fish and chips and both were delicious. The pub had a nice cosy old fashioned atmosphere and we...

This a very dog friendly inn/pub that provides B&B, and evening meals. The pub brews it's own beers and has various awards for doing so. The food is decent, some meals are better than others, but average's about £9.50 per main course. My main gripe is the accommodation. I wish I had seen the previous warnings on here about room...

Came here on our honeymoon. Had a great meal so decided to drive back up today for our 1 yr anniversary. Lovely weather, great food and excellent service. I highly recommend the burger. I just wish this pub wasn't 90 miles away! Good job guys, great pub!!
