We stayed 2 nights while visiting the Lake District. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Food was amazing. Very large serves and wholesome. Inn keeper was very friendly and has great local advice about off the beaten track drives which was our personal highlight for the area. Recommended!

We stayed for 2 nights at the Old Posting House. The pub had an "olde worlde" atmosphere. Food was excellent both breakfast and evening meals. The portions were (too) generous. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious on the first floor. My only "complaint" would be that the bath towels are quite small. All in all a pleasant break in... More

Ate here twice in the last week. Excellent house pies with wonderful chips! (You CAN have an alternative!). Quite an extensive menu including for example fresh trout. Dining room is a teapot collector's paradise and full of interest, not least of which is the original old post sorting drawers. Everything held together by the really happy and welcoming landlord. Value... More

We were made very welcome by Mick, the owner, when we arrived and throughout our stay. Great conversationalist and a mine of local information. If you like your food this is the place to stay because you get a lot of it. Full English breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 slices of bacon, sausage, tomatoes, beans, black pudding and toast. I had... More
