In 1799, when Temple Sowerby was known as 'The Queen of Westmorland Villages', Romantic poets William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge began their tour of the Lake District here at this 17th-century coaching inn on the Penrith to Appleby turnpike. The kitchen serves a mix of old favourites and more modern options, from soup and sandwiches to cod and hand cut chips; or slow-braised double lamb shank with minted mash and rosemary gravy.
