Homely inn in Beatrix Potter village

At a glance

Bar menu
Beer festival
Open all year

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 mash and onion gravy, or evening meals along the lines of potted rabbit with pickled vegetables followed by steak and Hawkshead ale pie. Look out for the carved figure of a king in the bar. Cosy, thoughtfully equipped bedrooms are available.
