Brook House Inn

Tranquil location for tempting, home-made food

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Beer festival

Few locations can rival this: Lakeland fells rise behind the inn to England’s highest peak, while golden sunsets illuminate tranquil Eskdale. Footpaths wind to nearby Stanley Ghyll’s wooded gorge with its falls and red squirrels, and the charming La’al Ratty narrow-gauge railway steams to and from the coast. It’s a magnet for ramblers and cyclists, so a small drying room is greatly appreciated by them. Up to seven real ales are kept, including Langdale from Cumbrian Legendary Ales, and an amazing selection of 175 malt whiskies, plus 25 gins. Home-made food prepared from Cumbria’s finest showcases the menus, so temper the drizzle with a warming bowl of home-made soup, or grilled goats' cheese rarebit with Eskdale relish, followed by local Cumberland sausage; beef and beer pie; or smoked haddock on mashed potato with leeks. Raspberry meringues or chocolate fudge cake with hot berry sauce, make a fine finish. This great community pub also takes a full role in the famous Boot Beer Festival each June.
