In the charming square at the heart of this Lakeland village, made famous by Beatrix Potter who lived nearby, this 16th-century inn throngs in summer. In colder weather, bag a table by the fire in the traditional carpeted bar, quaff a pint of Hawkshead Bitter and tuck into lunchtime food such as hot Cumberland sausage with a jacket potato and gravy, or evening meals along the lines of Morecambe Bay potted shrimps; or Lakeland tapas followed by baked chicken supreme; or lamb, black pudding and chunky vegetable casserole. Look out for the carved figure of a king in the bar. Cosy, thoughtfully equipped bedrooms are available.
