We visited on a weekday lunchtime with our 3 year old and baby. The staff were wonderful and our little boy was treated like royalty. The food was delicious and the setting really lovely...the roaring fire made it especially cosy. We'll definitely be back.

Gorgeous pub we went to two nights on our recent holiday. They had a huge selection of specials, (everything was super tasty!) and the staff were great. No request was too big and kindly we were allowed to try some of their new wines. Beautiful pub.

I met up with members of my family there for... More

The décor and furnishings are absolutely spot on for a village inn.The atmosphere, the ambience, the log fire, the table settings, the amazing menu, the friendly locals, the fantastic choice of beers.

Spent a long weekend with the family in Castle Carrock and visited the Duke of Cumberland pub twice. On both nights we had a fantastic meal with great food and excellent service.

The other had the burger and again he thoroughly enjoyed it! The Spanish chef definetly exceeded our expectations... More

My husband and I live in a neighbouring village near The Duke. It is now under new management and the improvements are noteworthy. Before, the food was just your average pub fare, but now it is at a standard well above the norm. Additionally, the decor has changed and is more upscale. Another point worth considering if you have a... More
