Discovered the Featherston Arms last year whilst driving around the Eden Valley. Kirkoswald is so pretty and quaint we decided to return. The food is the best pub food I have ever eaten. The pies are incredible and the pub itself is cosy.

First visit to the Fetherston and will certainly go back. The meal was top notch - couldn't fault anything. Started with the Whitebait followed by what can only be described as a whale on a plate with noodles! (Sea Bream). Everything cooked to perfection. Friendly staff :-)
