I took my mum out for dinner here. The food was great and the outdoor area looked really lovely even if it was a bit cold when we went. Apparently the view during the day is really nice, I hope to see it next time I'm back in the area.

We had a wonderful time in the mason Arms, returning for our 7 year wedding anniversary after spending our honeymoon here also. We had a lovely mini break away and look forward to returning in the future.

Had a lovely lunch here, staff were friendly and the food was very good, very nice atmosphere, old country pub with nice walks around, you can get a walk leaflet from the bar for a donation to the local hospice but if you do the walks from the pub it adds a couple of miles, we left our car in...

Amazing roast beef Sunday dinner. Only beaten by the amazing view, whilst we sat outside in the early evening sunshine. The mushroom soup looked a little strange / very watery, but was so very tasty. I'd definitely have it again. All in all this is probably the best Sunday lunch experience ever (weather permitting). This pub is located in such... More

Lovely historic building serving local, fresh produce. The quintessential Lake District pub serving fabulous food in a friendly atmosphere. We had a family celebration in one of the dining alcoves upstairs. Both the service and food were top notch. Parking is available to the side of the pub. Worth the winding drive to reach.

We visited on the hottest day of the year. It was early evening and the terrace was in the shade, which was delightful. The menu was interesting and food well cooked. It was very busy, but food was served promptly.

Called in for an evening meal and got told no tables inside only outside and it's raining. A man came in and pulled a member of staff to one side and asked for a table for 4 to which he replies no problem! Obviously his mate! Cheers

Have eaten here a few times over the years (about 25yrs!). Called in last Sunday and had the most amazing roast beef dinner. Best meal we had whilst in lakes. We sat outside as the weather was good and the view is beautiful.
