This was our first trip to the Lake District and being clueless Londoners we took a guess of where to base ourselves and where to stay. Strands Inn came up in a search and I was instantly drawn to the place, mainly as I'd seen so many dreary B&Bs... Didn't know anything about Wast Water but was drawn to the...

Great weekend - lovely staff, cracking food, good beer, open fires, fabulous area. What more do you want? Wasdale and Eskdale right on the door step and numerous walks etc to have a go at. Thanks to all the Strands Inn staff. Chris and Kate - room 3

After 93 years years of independant living, I moved my Grandad close to me and into a retirement home at Gosforth. Today was his first trip out for a few months and I thought where would be best to take him for lunch. 5 minutes away is the beautiful Wasdale valley and the local pubs at Nether Wasdale including the...

What a brilliant place to stay. Really attentive staff but not overbearing. Rooms clean and comfortable. Food and beer brilliant . If you can ask for a tour of their micro brewery much more interesting then a big brewery. The owners are very nice and they couldn't do enough for our group. We booked 12 of the 14 rooms and...

Glad we stumbled upon this place and had a great lunch! The waiters are amiable and the service is remarkably fast for what is offered. Their Sunday special lamb is incredible. This is a must visit when travelling to Wastwater!

Great find during a bike ride. Lunch was a well made sausage sandwich and a very nice Ploughmans, supported by some sensational beers. Lunch was finished off with a very informative Brewery tour before we trundled off on our way. Thank you!

Drove past on my way to Wastwater, and noted that it was the CAMRA West Cumbria Pub of The Year 2016, so decided to check it out in the evening. They had a good range of beer available, I tried several on draft, but noted they had bottles of their other brews available at the bar. All the beer I...

We visited at the end of a few days in the Lake District. The area is remote, and if you want brick and mortar accommodation there isn't much choice. I'd happily return to the Strands. The staff make you feel very welcome and both breakfast and pub meals are to a good standard. The rooms are a little dated and...

We arrived on Sunday lunchtime for a two night stay. The pub was very welcoming and the staff are great. A fantastic range of real ales brewed in the brewery in the car park. We are Sunday lunch, three course on the Sunday special and the food is excellent, fresh and very well cooked. Sunday night was quiz night and...
