We had a gorgeous walk over Coniston Coppermines and finished off with a delicious pub lunch at the Black Bull. Servings were hearty, prices reasonable, staff helpful and friendly. Good choice of veggie options including a really tasty lasagne. Recommend the bluebird ale.

Was not keen on the noises (not sure what it was)...

Who can resist a pub with its own micro brewery attached ?.Food was tasty and good choices with local content washed down with local beers and good service And you can probably park up your car and walk there and back to where you're staying.

This has got to be one of the best pubs in England. We didn't stay in the hotel, so ours is only an overview of the bar and it's facilities. The bar not only provides the full range of Coniston Brewing Company's' finest beers, but is a welcoming, relaxing, and extremely friendly place to spend a few hours.The staff are...
