we booked in for 5 days for a walking holiday. The location is great in the centre of the lakes with many wainwrights on your doorstep. The friendly welcome we received when we arrived continued through the holiday. The staff were always chatty and helpful. We had rooms 1 and 2 which suffer from the road noise but then if... More

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend at the beginning of June and must say that we found the room clean and comfortable and the staff very pleasant and accommodating.

Only a 10 minute walk from Grasmere centre and public bridle ways up to the Lion and the Lamb directly across the road for easy walking. Superb friendly service with a bar manager very knowledgeable about spirits (although the selection was a little basic). Very comfortable in atmosphere with a good food menu. Rooms work well although are very very... More

Whilst staying at a fab cottage in Grasmere recently, we were told about this place and duly took the 20 minute walk to go and see what the fuss was all about. Grasmere has quite a few pubs and restaurants, but they tend to be pricey..one pub charged us £8 for a pint of bitter and half a lager, which,... More

We visited here after a long walk. The pub is dog friendly which is great. The food we had was lovely but a shame they had run out of rice so we couldn't have the chilli or curry. Service was great. Beer was also good and the waitress had a treat for our dog. Very sweet. Will be going back.

This Inn is on the main road to Keswick about half a mile outside Grasmere.
