AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu

A slate-built Lake District hostelry sitting comfortably amidst the dry-stone walls and thick hedges along the winding lane to the Wrynose and Hardknott Passes. The pub is Lakeland through and through, from its Cumbrian-sourced food to real ales. Everyone, including dogs, is made welcome in the beamed bar. When it’s cold there’s a fire; when it’s warm the place to settle is in the landscaped garden, where fell views are a bonus.
