Stopped here with my Husband on the spur of the moment. The pub and rooms have recently been done up and the place looks really quirky. We had a lovely meal of local cumberland sausage and tried the local ales and lake district Gin. Will definitely be back

I was expecting the pub to be on top form after receiving flyers through the letter box...only to be disappointed. There were only 3 main courses to choose from and only 2 desserts. I find if there is a limited menu, the dishes are good quality, however, my friends steak and chips looked very greasy and my curry was very...

Great interior, friendly service and good food. the steak was tender, flavorful and very reasonably priced. The new owner is friendly and helpful and the service staff attentive. We are delighted to see this lovely old world pub reopened and with a fresh take.

The food was OK but very overpriced for very basic pub grub and the menue had very few choices. We were surprised to find that dogs are allowed into the eating area which...

Stopped in the lovely village of Askham for lunch at this pub. Very friendly service. Nice to find a good selection of vegetarian food. We had the sharing platter, halloumi cheese, hummus, crusty bread, salad, olives, butternut squash - delicious. We sat outside enjoying the sun and a nice beer.

Now under new management, tried some of their new sample menu as full one not out yet, and food was excellent, well presented and tasty. Will definitely be visiting again on my next trip to the village! New owners seem to be friendly and welcoming.
