My partner & I booked a table at the Brown Horse after reading a positive review in a visitors guide at our B&B. When we arrived, the place was packed & the atmosphere buzzing - it had a very inviting, cozy feel & had nice, modern decor for an old country pub. They were a bit slow to get us...

Beautiful pub with great food however staff were a little scarce at this busy time of year. Perhaps to provide good service more staff this time of year would help. I would visit and book in advance and perhaps look to ordering food before you arrive as waiting time was over 30 mins.

If you are looking for a restaurant/pub with good atmosphere, nice staff and great food, then go no further. Excellent, looking forward to going back. We always love a visit to the Lake District and this will become a regular feature.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights. We have the following observations which may be of help to you. Our bedroom was in the old part of the hotel and was a good size, warm and with a decent en suite shower. The windows are not double glazed - and this maybe because it is not...

All-in-all a great country location with beautiful views the restaurant has a very good upmarket menu and reasonably priced too the included breakfast is second to none as well as all the staff.... i think the only thing missing is a bar area just to drink in as everywhere is taken up by diners (hence their good food)
