Fancy Ullswater? Good, because it's not far away from the 'Yat'. Now in new hands, this 17th-century coaching inn, originally a tollgate, provides top Cumbrian microbrewery ales, lunchtime snacks, light bites and evening meals. The dinner menu may come up trumps with mussels in Thai broth; pork fillet in pancetta; and sweet potato and chickpea curry. The sunlit cottage garden is well furnished with seating.
