Hare & Hounds Country Inn

Very much a typical Lakeland pub

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu

Just three miles from Lake Windermere with exceptional views of the surrounding fells, this 17th-century coaching inn's traditional Lakeland atmosphere is generated by the black slate floors, stacked logs, old pine tables and mis-matched chairs. Frequently changing real ales come from local breweries, while the home-cooked menu and daily specials owe much to the surrounding Lake District National Park. For something simple try Cartmel Valley burger and fries, or beer-battered haddock and chunky chips, or for something more, shall we say, sophisticated, consider grilled sirloin steak with green peppercorn sauce, or beetroot and red wine risotto with grilled goats’ cheese. Homely desserts include Bramley apple crumble with vanilla ice cream. The terrace or garden will beckon on fine days.
