wonderful atmosphere and food in this gorgeous pub/restaurant. The service and food was very excellent and the walk from our flat in Hawkshead was ideal as this was just across the small village. Definitely the best in the area.More

We weren't very hungry as we'd had a cream tea earlier. We sat down outside in the sunshine and ordered a bowl of chips. Every time we have eaten here the food is always superb.The best chips I have eaten for ages.
