Room & Suite (8)


Built in 1688 this traditional Lakeland Inn with its slate flagged floors, beamed ceilings and open fire retains all the character you would expect from this popular village pub. Situated at the foot of Blencathra in the beautiful village of Threlkeld with views towards Skiddaw & Helvellyn this really is the place relax and enjoy the beauty of the Northern Lake district. The Horse & Farrier is committed to serving food and drink of excellent quality amidst informal surroundings. We have an excellent reputation in the Lake district for serving home cooked Fayre either in our intimate restaurant or cosy bar. Our menus are interesting and varied with vegetarians well catered for. We have two pubs in the village which cater for every occasion,two cottages and 14 well appointed bedrooms. Jooles & the team look forward to welcoming you to The Horse & Farrier & The Salutation Inn.

Food is always good here with efficient and friendly service. Lovely interior. We came in March and had the nicest steak and ale pie with proper chips we had ever had. We can highly recommend here for a lunch or a special evening meal.

We visited here as it was near to the cottage we were staying in and sounded worth a visit. The staff were friendly, the service was efficient but the food was absolutely first class. Every one of us was impressed. I would highly recommend it.

"'Blencathra' room was superb."
"didn't stay, only used the restaurant as we were staying in Keswick"
"Rooms also available at their sister pub, the Salutation, nearby, more cheaply, but worth paying more for the refurbished bedrooms."
