We were a party of 6 staying in Threlkeld and had dinner on 2 separate occasions also stopping off once for a drink. The staff were extremely friendly, a good selection of beers and a varied menu. The food was very good, however what I found unacceptable was the way sauces were served in small paper cups on the plates....

Large but cosy country pub in my favourite part of the world...the Lake District. Good food, efficiently prepared and presented. Lovely sincere welcoming staff. Welcoming warm fireplaces enable you to look at the shivering mountains through the windows

This took 40 minutes to arrive, a few sandwiches and a salad which were nothing out of the ordinary, but were pricey. Said before...

Called in for an evening meal having heard good reports. The food was the wrong side of average. There were three of us, we each had adifferent dish and were not impressed. A medium steak was cooked right through , but no sign of searing on the outside? Even the chips were poor. Sorry, won't be back.

Like a previous reviewer, we stayed at a nearby cottage with 2 dogs and enjoyed two meals at this pub. We popped in for a drink one afternoon with the dogs but didn't take them with us for the meals (although we could have done). The food was excellent (hot, tasty, good-sized portions for hungry eaters), and the staff were...

Had an afternoon in the lakes and fancied going for some early dinner - trying to find somewhere that serves meals all day on a Tuesday isn't easy but we came across this one and the menu looked good. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly waiter who served us throughout. He was very polite and offered his...

First weekend in September we was in the Lakes for a weekend away. We had brought our two big dogs with us and we was struggling to find somewhere that we would be comfortable taking the dogs inside to eat.
