Visited this lovely pub for Sunday lunch. We were pleasantly surprised with the very good service and great food. The Sunday lunch menu is very good value and the various roasts appreciated by us all. We'll return if we're in the area again.

Response from Jonathan R | Reviewed this property |
Wouldn't walk it after dark, great walk in the summer months takes me just under an hour. Taxis varies on time. I can get a taxi to Keswick at 7pm for around £10 and that was a 6 seater. But then at 1-2am it's about £13-15.
