The dishes we enjoyed were of good quality, albeit with a price tag which only allows for moderate value for money. My party were not particularly impressed with being sat at a wonky table in the bar area (the wonky aspect was the worst), and we were also disappointed the roast dinner was not available, despite featuring on the specials board and in a menu insert. Being a mixed British-Japanese group, we did not want to cause a fuss by pointing this out, but it might be useful for you to know. Again, the food was enjoyable, particularly the well-presented cod and the range of deserts - the lemon tart and the mascarpone were definite highlights. Overall a three-star experience.

Excellent again. Simply always is. “Pub food” simply doesn’t get better. Staff know their stuff and have great attitude. Looked after our baby / toddler as though they were full meal paying guest. Always a great start or end to a lakes weekend.

Excellent as usual! Service attentive and efficient, food delicious (the roasted honey vegatables with goats cheese was delicious and beautiful presentation, the raspberry soufflé just perfect). This is our favourite place when visiting the Lakes at least 3 times year. Thank you to a well polished team!

We live locally and a fantastic meal on Saturday. We were warmly welcomed by Adam and looked after by the lovely girl recently returned from Portugal. The food was delicious and we'll certainly return.

Very nice place where the decor in the bedrooms is in need of refurbishment. The food is very over priced for what we regard as just ok, although the breakfasts are a good standard we would not eat there again on an evening.The staff are friendly and very helpful
