We had an excellent meal at The Shepherd's Arms. We both ordered from the Specials Menu - I had lobster tagliatelle and my partner had duck. I also had a Baileys cheesecake for dessert which was also excellent. Highly recommended.

I'd just finished my first day on the C2C walk. It had been hot. I was meeting a mate in a pub in Ennerdale Bridge and I then realised there were two. Lovely beer, friendly staff, lovely beer garden at the back. Really enjoyed it.

This is a great hotel - clean, well maintained and very comfortable, with a very good restaurant/bar. The food was well cooked and had a choice of local dishes. Breakfast was exceptional, especially the porridge. I wholeheartedly recommend it and hope to stay again

You can be guaranteed an excellent meal At The Shepherds Arms. We eat there about twice a month. Really fresh local ingredients, cooked fresh every day. The team of two chefs work very hard to satisfy our taste buds. There's always a varied selection of...More

Lovely beer in a friendly environment. The pub has a highly reputable restaurant but we didn't try it.

We have enjoyed Sunday lunch here twice recently. The roast beef just melts in your mouth and the proper homemade Yorkshire pudding is really fluffy inside. The vegetables which are served separately are cooked to perfection. We look forward to returning soon.
