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, Cocker Hoop and Thatchers Gold help to inspire such outrageous fibbing. The chef's specials are chalked up on the board. The inn, in the beautiful valley of Wasdale, is licensed for civil marriages, when, hopefully, “I do” is not a lie!
