A 'proper' Lakeland pub

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

If, when heading for The Lakes, your route involves leaving the M6 at junction 36, this is the first pub you'll encounter. In the inviting bar the real ales change frequently, and you can play pool, darts and dominoes. Committed to local sourcing, the kitchen has a mantra: "Proud to serve proper pub food in decent portions". Expect cheesy leek-stuffed chicken; steak and Theakston's ale pie; gently baked salmon fillet; roasted and stuffed bell pepper; chargrills and gourmet burgers. Expect good wines: the three top men at the pub's wine merchant have knocked up 100 years' experience between them.
