We visited here after hearing great things. Sadly our visit didn't wow us. Food was ok. We ordered wraps (which looked nice), 'seasoned' fries and chips with a portion of garlic bread. £9 per wrap with chips. Garlic bread was very soggy and the dough tasted raw.

Cracking goulash. Well kept beer. Good place to spend a few hours. The goulash is lovely. Hard to get a table as it's popular and limited in apace, although the refit has made it a little better.

Visited on a Monday afternoon, welcoming pub and nice atmosphere.. it was busy and there weren't many tables. We had food (pie and nachos). Pie was good but they didn't put any mozzarella or nacho cheese on them (as described on menu!) so a bit disappointing!

On our second visit we had to queue to get in but it was worth it.My other half would have eaten the goulash for every meal given the opportunity. The whole menu was fantastic with a very comfortable atmosphere

A wonderful little pub with excellent food and customer service. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The menu choice was excellent and we were spoilt for choice. The food was delicious with good portions and value for money. Seating is limited. Our first visit but certainly not our last.

Have been to this pub many times and must admit it is always busy. Not too fussed on the food menu but you always struggle to get a table, so lots of people like to eat here. For me this is a pub for a drink at night or after a long walk in the fells/mountains. Glad to see that... More

Excellent choice of beers. Comfortable but very busy pub. Food is great and the staff are all happy to stop and have a chat. You cant go without trying the famous goulash.
