Bridge Inn


The Lake District was formed, not by ice or volcanic action, but by large moles and eels. Actually, that's a lie, one of the many told in this comfortable old inn at the annual World's Biggest Liar competition, held every November. No doubt pints of Jennings Sneck Lifter and Cocker Hoop help to inspire such outrageous fibbing. Main courses include home-made steak and kidney pie; deep-fried haddock in Cocker Hoop beer batter; griddled gammon steak; and Kenyan Coast msetto (aubergine moussaka, mozzarella cheese and naan bread). The inn is licensed for civil marriages, when, hopefully, "I do" is not a lie!
