About The Brown Horse Inn
The Brown Horse Inn offers the cosy ambience of a rustic country inn, featuring beautiful beams, real fires and friendly waiting staff.
Our sophisticated menu has a contemporary take on traditional local fare, with the majority of the meats and vegetables reared and grown on the Brown Horse Estate. Anything that is not direct from The Brown Horse Estate is sourced locally.
We also offer an extensive collection of wines, hand-pulled, Home Brewed, and Traditional Ales and a vast Gin menu.
Our restaurant can seat up to 40 guests with table sizes varying from 2 persons up to 12 persons, however, we can cater for larger parties when booked in advance.
Adjacent to the Restaurant is the traditional country bar which offers a lovely relaxed atmosphere, serving exactly the same menu as the restaurant. The bar can seat up to 30 guest with table sizes varying from 2 persons up to 8 persons.
Loved it. Pity about the circumstances but didn’t spoil a thing. Hope to see you soon.
Had a lovely stay. Great food!
Excellent food (with very generous portions!) in a relaxed atmosphere. Great service from polite and friendly staff. Would highly recommend.
Fabulous food and service in the most beautiful setting. A real Lake District find
Lovely food but the pub lacked ambience. Cheesy music playing and then they put battery operated tea lights on the table. What on earth.??. This pub needed a roaring fire and a few more pub food classic dishes on the menu too which wasn’t particularly inspiring. The service was lacking too, had to ask twice for the wine menu and then a further 10 minutes for the wine to arrive and they were far from busy. Had high hopes for this pub, based on the reviews. Food was enjoyable but that was the best of it, won’t be returning.
Dear Victoria, We are sorry you felt the pub lacked ambiance, it is difficult to have a playlist to suit all tastes in music. We do have a wood burning fire (which you were sat not far from), however we often let this burn out in the evening due to a full restaurant & bar guests often become to hot if it is left to burn. Regarding our LED tea lights, we now use these to reduce the use of single use disposable materials in our business, contributing to less waste disposal. We are also a very family friendly pub and this is less of a fire hazard for children. I must apologies you had to wait a short time for your wine, you may have notices the restaurant was almost full but again this is no excuse and our greatest apologies. I am very sorry to hear you will not be returning to dine with us however thank you for your feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed your food on the evening. Craig Edmondson General manager
Please see TripAdvisor entry which is not uncomplimentary! My thanks for an enjoyable stay.
Delicious, beautifully presented food in a cosy welcoming atmosphere with friendly attentive staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening here for my husband's birthday, so much so we've booked again for tonight!
Superb service and fantastic food!
The food was good but the service a little lacking. There was a large party and it was very noisy and somewhat chaotic! I have no problem with people having a good time but we were unable to hear our own conversation .
Thank you for your review. We are sorry you felt the service was lacking and will ensure this is looked in to as this is usually not an issue. Also I would like to apologies that you found the restaurant to loud, as we do allow larger parties and are unable to always keep the noise down. We do hope to welcome you again in the future.
This was our first visit for many years but we will be back soon.
Can’t praise enough. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel special. The staff were amazing, the room was very clean and comfortable and stylish. We will certainly return. Keep doing exactly what you are doing we found it perfect. ( No we are not related to the Inn or staff )
Great choice of gins & gluten free menu options too!
Fabulous meal, absolutely delicious, fantastic customer service, would definitely recommend!
