This is a nice homely pub that serves a good selection of above average pub meals at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere is good, the service is friendly and the drinks pretty cheap too. Cheaper and busier than the more upmarket The Bridge next door.

A proper pub serving proper grub...the Cumberland sausage was superb and the chips homemade too. And if it's beer your after then you will not go thirsty...they sell my very favourite, Loweswater Gold, probably one of the finest pale ales in the country! Highly recommended!

Pleasant, relaxed atmosphere, enjoyed during the daytime with friends. I've had a few local ales here - none of which have disappointed.
