Really excellent. From the start everything was so good, always exceeding expectations. Lynn and staff were so accommodating, really valuing my stay. The bedroom was very comfortable with a great shower room. A little bit of road noise in the morning. The cooked breakfast was great, dinner was a Cajun chicken salad which was moist and tender with good flavours. Really enjoyed my stay.

Having dropped in here without prior booking for a late afternoon lunch, my husband and I were not disappointed . With a friendly greeting, we were ushered to a table where our drinks order was taken while we pondered over the menu. My husband chose the lamb Henry while I chose two smaller meals of cheesy garlic bread and prawn baguette and side salad. The portions were plentiful and in my Husbands own words “ one of the best lamb Henry’s I’ve ever tasted” He finished every morsel on his plate with gusto . I on the other hand, thoroughly enjoyed every morsel of my cheesy garlic bread and a very juicy prawn baguette. My husband had a lager while I had a large Diet Pepsi. The bill was less than we expected. We were over the moon with the food and we will definitely be back soon for more delicious food. Well done to all the staff and management on providing fabulous food at great prices.

Fantastic location for south Lakes and Kendal. The rooms are gorgeous and clean with good sized showers, everything you would need is catered for. We were welcomed from the word go and nothing was too much trouble Being in a pub is so convenient as you don’t have to drive out for a drink or to eat as everything is just downstairs meaning no one has to be the designated driver so everyone can enjoy their break The menu has a good choice of dishes with specials to compliment the choice a real bonus if you are staying more than a couple of days, there is also a singing and dancing coffee machine so you can finish your meal with a fantastic coffee The bar is well stocked with all the favourite beers as well as a couple of cask local ales We booked. Bed & Breakfast and the breakfast was cooked to perfection exactly as we asked for and freshly prepared We have stayed in many venues of varying styles but this one is a real gem and we would highly recommend it to anyone

An excellent vegetarian meal with friends and my Bearded Collie who was made most welcome. The staff are always helpful and pleasant and the food piping hot and delicious. The vegetarian burger was tasty as was the food ordered by the non vegetarians. Always a great place to stop for a meal.
