A stones throw from the M6 making this an ideal place for us to stop on a trip up to the far north of Scotland. Clean room with space for our dog cage. Excellent meat pie for dinner.

Yet again another lovely meal. The food is home cooked and proper pub food. This place is just how a pub should be, a friendly welcome, wonderful food and dog friendly.

I Was biking with a friend around these places with very little villages. We were looking for a place to have lunch and we discovered this place with a nice owner and good meals. A mention for the fantastic Cumbria Ale, it's worth a try.
