“Such a welcome sight!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

After a very arduous walk in terrible weather, we were greatly relieved to arrive at this pub. They kept the kitchen open as we were very hungry. Allowed facilities to dry out our clothes, and enjoyed a great meal, which was much needed.
Comfy room with good sized bathroom All very clean, and up to date in terms of furnishings.

Very helpful staff and even had newspapers at the breakfast table. (Nowhere else did we have his service)!

The next day, only had to cross the road to restart the C2C.

Could not really fault.

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend to do some walking in the Eastern Lakes. In some ways this is more of a pub with rooms than a hotel. Downstairs it is mostly bar and games room with no lounge. The deal we got was very good value and I was a little apprehensive of the quality of the place but we were pleasantly surprised. The en suite room was fine and the bathroom and shower excellent. The couple who ran the place were very friendly and the food was pretty good. Not cordon bleu but an extensive menu and very tasty pub fare and extremely good value. The breakfast and service were excellent too. Shap is basically a large village which has long been by-passed by the M6, not especially attractive but we found it a good base for doing some walking in the eastern fells. The only criticism I have is that they didn't have any decent beer on which, given the quality of beer available around the Lakes, was disappointing.

"Well you can stay - but we have a loud party tonight"
I was warned!! - but they were good enough to put me in the furthest room from the noise - and although I could hear the 'boom boom boom' base beat, it didn't actually disturb me. And they don't have a party every night!!
But it does demonstrate the genuine honesty in the set-up.
The beer was welcome. The room was fab. The shower was great. The breakfast was endless. All-in-all a perfect place to stay if you're trying to cycle the JoGLE route to Land's End.

Had a cracking stop over on the 5th day of the C2C. The landlord kept the kitchen open for us to arrive in as they stopped serving meals at 8.00pm. Served up a welcome meal that was pretty good. The room was spot on, very clean and the bathroom/shower was well needed and looked to have been recently refurbed. The breakfast in the morning was really good to the point we didn't want to walk afterwards, and the landlord couldn't have been more helpful. Good stop over.
