We stopped by for our evening meal tonight, having been several times over recent years. The food here has always been a cut above standard pub grub, and you can tell that there's been some real thought gone into their menu. It's not the cheapest food you'll find (main courses range from around £13.00 to £21.00, and puddings average around...

As part of our time in the Lake District and part the way though a walk, we visited here twice for lunch and excellent it was too. Stunning location, I must mention the hanging baskets and flower that are part of the place, there just add so well to the lovely location. Both our lunches were excellent, lovely food, nice...

We called at the pub for lunch after a short walk to see the caves. We had sausage sandwiches on ciabatta bread. We also ordered chips which I must say were the best I have had in a longtime. Both the food and service was excellent and we will defiantly be back.

Really enjoyed our family cream team (fluffy scones, strawberry jam and cream) here today. Promptly served by a friendly lady. We only had fruit juice/coffees and cream teas but bar looked well stocked and was a really good atmosphere. Might have to return with all the whiskies they have! They also do accommodation and I've every reason to believe this...

Lovely place, a few miles outside of bustling Ambleside but you'd never know as tranquillity, scenery, mountains, lakes and rivers are minutes away. We've stayed many times and it's got everything we want for a weekend in the Lakes. A relaxing bar with a huge number of ales and whisky's, but in good weather (or bad if you want) there's...

Stopped for lunch before continuing our trip but wasn't too impressed. It took two members of staff to understand that we wanted 3 soups - 1 with gluten free bread - I ham sandwich and one steak burger. How hard is that to understand. We found the soup to be too rich with too much cream in it. The food...

We have stayed here so many times! It is always nice and relaxing. The food is excellent. Unfortunately in our most recent stay (July - mid summer?) it was cold, so we had to ask for the heating to be put on. The accommodation is reasonably priced, the food is always good. The fabric of the building has always been...
