We stayed a night during a tour of The Wall and The Lakes. This is one of two Hotels used and by far the best for quality, food, rooms, service and atmosphere. We would definitely go back and I can recommend it whole heartedly. We chose a Saturday night that must have been the busiest the pub/restaurant had seen for some time, so there was a little delay on food arriving, but hardly noticeable and to be honest the staff dealt with it so well it didn't matter. Full English breakfast was ace too, freshly cooked, good choices and plentiful.
Room 2 is large, nicely appointed (what a shower!!), comfy, clean AND the window opened properly.
Its got a real country pub, family run atmosphere and the choice at bar and on menu was really good and priced well.
Many thanks to the owners and all the staff :)
