It is six years since we last stayed at the Brook House Inn. Far too long! Aided by glorious weather we have had another 2 fantastic days in the Eskdale Valley which in our view is the nicest part of Cumbria. Food, drink and service...More

We visited on Good Friday and just arrived without a booking. They were happy to fit us in (a group of 8, four adults and 4 children) but we would have to wait. The bar area was very busy, but we eventually got a table....More

Imagine the scene: we're walking in the beautiful Western Lakes, it's a fresh spring day and the pub in the centre of the village is packed. We elect to find a table at the Book House. Dogs are welcome so that's a bonus. The place...More

A cold miserable Thursday night I really didn't want to drive far but I keep reading and hearing good reviews regarding this pub/restaurant. The wife and I arrived around 6 pm to find the pub quite quiet to be expected this time of year. We...More

Our imaginative menu, including vegetarian options and scrumptious puddings, is complemented by blackboard specials and a varied wine list. Delicious home-made food is available all day. Dining in our restaurant, bar or snug is always a pleasure. We serve real ales, treated on their journey from barrel to bar with tender loving care. These include Cumbria Legendary Ales Langdale, Hawkshead and a range of guest beers from Local Brewers such as Yates, Barngates and Ennerdale. We also have beers from many others brewers around the Country.Brook House Inn is one of the 3 hosts of the Boot Beer Festival, Boot Beer Festival is held in June every year and is one of the biggest beer festivals in the Lake District. Don't forget we also have 180 Malt Whiskies to try!
