Below Farleton Knott, a hill from which locals once warned of Scottish unrest, stands this apparently simple roadside pub. Any notion of simplicity, however, is quickly dispelled on entering this stylish 1760s inn. Oak beams, leather sofas, colourful rugs and antique furniture impart a farmhouse feel. Brathay slate tops the bar, where Lakeland brewers such as Tirril and Bowness Bay augment Kirkby Lonsdale’s own Monumental ale; more than a dozen wines are served by the glass. Polished oak floors lead into the restaurant, where open fires and wood-burning stoves do a sterling job when needed. Beautifully presented food is served from noon through to 9pm, with quality and local provenance the keynotes. Wild flower sourdough with bacon butter; or baby beetroots, grilled Ragstone goat's cheese and candied walnuts may kick things off, then continue with chicken, ham and cider pie; or Himalayan salt chamber aged Cumbrian pork cutlet, with smoked mash, Hispi cabbage and parsley liquor.
