Had lunch twice while we were on our second honey moon walking the lakes. Lovely food and service. Log burning fire was a lovely, welcoming sight and atmosphere after a hard walk along the Esk Trail.

This is a REAL Lakeland pub in every sense. Great real ales and the best real chips ever ..served by real genuine people. Unfussy decor but warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean bedroom with very welcome bath. Amazing breakfast...didn't eat again that day! We'll be back! Xx

I met up with family recently at The King George IV for lunch and we had a great afternoon. The staff are fantastic and the food was lovely. Lovely log fire in the bar was very welcoming. Would highly recommend.

Traditional low beams stone flagged floors, good selection of local beers. Friendly staff serving good sized portions of tasty food including home made burgers & lasagne. Good place to eat after a walk in the beautiful Eskdale valley.
