Fish was standard out of a freezer, not home made as were other dishes. Sadly not good enough to make another trip. Staff friendly and accomodating. Wish the electric pretend stove had been real as needed the warmth.

Called in for a pint after climbing the Cat Bells, nice beer but the atmosphere was awful. Would rather have a beer sat on the boot of my car. Landlord has even blocked the darts board with empty tables... huh?

Good selection of beers - surprised to see (a good) one all the way from Hampshire! Wholesome steaks and pies. Reasonable prices & good service. Busy landlord ensuring we were happy & well looked after by his staff. Recommended.
