Good Hotel Guide Review
Becky and Ash Dewar’s popular village pub ‘with a modern twist’ is in a 16th-century coaching inn in the Lyth valley. Join locals in the beamed, slate-floored bar for cask ales, craft beers or a cocktail made with locally produced spirits. At any time of day, choose from a menu of burgers, pizzas and comfort food in the light-filled dining room. On a sunny day, the beer garden’s the place to be. Upstairs, smart, contemporary bedrooms have lovely extras: home-made brownies, freshly ground coffee and fresh milk, a digital radio, Cumbrian-made toiletries. There are fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt and locally baked bread at breakfast; cooked dishes include smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, and a full English.
