The Black Bull Inn & Hotel

1 Yewdale Road, CONISTON, LA21 8DU

Beside a stream, or beck as they say round here, stands this traditional Lakeland pub. Its bare stone walls, oak beams, log-burning stove and part-slate floor all contribute to its appeal, while of further interest, at least to beer drinkers, is its own microbrewery's Bluebird Bitter, commemorating Donald Campbell's attempts on the world water speed record; it also brews Old Man Ale, named for the local 2,634-ft mountain. Those out walking all morning or all day can look forward to sandwiches or filled jacket potatoes. Chances are they'll want something heartier, such as roast rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding and gravy; poached sole fillets with dill and cucumber cream; or roast loin and belly of pork with sage and onion stuffing, crackling and gravy.
