        After a fell walk in the lakes we were all very hungry the food ordered came quickly and was good quality and nice big portions. It was a nice friendly pub with a mixture of walkers and locals. The beer was also very nice.

        I saw some t shirts for sale at the Wallsend B&B (in Bowness on Solway) they said 'I walked the wall', I think they had 2/3 different designs but I didn't notice any polo shirts. The Kings Arms probably sell them too. You... More
