Wonderful Inn in a perfect location. Great food and super service.
Comfortable, clean accommodation; pleasant and helpful staff; really good food.
Ambience, friendliness of staff and good food.
Pub ambience. High quality walking at all levels.Weather was superb.Staff all v good and friendly
Bar meals little pricey even for central Lakes,but quality good
Couldn't fault the location, room or price. Room 5 was cosy and quiet. Would highly recommend and return!
The room and bathroom.The beds were very comfortable.The bars were proper old pub,rather than a cold wine bar type place.The staff were very pleasant and helpful.The evening meal was first class,as was the breakfast.
The noisy neighbour,who must have come in and out of his room,slamming the door at least 7 times in half an hour,but that's the luck of the draw ! Also the constant humming from what I assume was an extractor fan or something,outside.
Beautiful location. Cosy and welcoming inn. Staff friendly and food excellent. Definitely stay again.
Nothing not to like really. Bed too firm for me but that is just my opinion.
The place and our room was lovely. The staff made us feel welcome, the food and service was very good.
My only comment would be that there was a generator or air con unit outside our room that hummed all night, as a light sleeper it disturbed me. My partner was not troubled by the noise.

Location and ambience
Evening meal over priced
Excellent location - we did not use the car for our stay because of the good walks from the door.
The place was overcrowded especially in the evening . The dining room was too packed so we went to a nearby pub for our evening meal.
Super village location and feeling of a proper English pub with good food and good beer
Rooms a bit small but this is a very old pub
Comfortable room, great breakfast, lovely bar (we are regular visitors)

having to go home.
Location, friendliness of staff, quality of food and good variety of real ales in the bar
The Pub could do with a bit of upgrading without losing its atmosphere. Bed a bit hard.
The staff, accommodation, and food excellent and the inn is perfectly situated for gentle or strenuous walking. Weather was perfect too during our stay.
Whenever we come to the Lakes we always visit Elterwater and the Britannia Inn, but we have never stayed until now. We stayed 2 x nights Bank holiday Monday 25.08.4 and Tuesday 26.08.14. Couldn't fault a thing. Lovely staff, especially the irish barman! Even the weather was excellent.
the whole inn is bursting with history and we loved the old rooms, the tiny bar and the beautiful flower boxes outside all the windows. the staff were extremely friendly, our room was cleaned each day and the wonderful Lake District Farrer tea replenished! Breakfast was great and the night we ate in, the food delicious. although we had a room at the front just above the bar, we were amazed at how quiet it was after around 9.30pm.
