Good Hotel Guide Review
Guests receive a “friendly welcome” at this “lovely” country hotel, once a Lakeland staging post and coaching inn. It stands in “well-kept, peaceful” gardens that extend towards the surrounding woodland. “It is nice and quiet despite the nearby main road, which cannot be seen,” said a visitor this year. The traditionally styled bedrooms have a china tea service and a Roberts radio; each has views of the gardens or woodland. “Our good-sized room had a large canopied bed and two comfy chairs; the bathroom had natural light and lots of instant hot water.” There is a choice of places to eat: the bar provides light lunches, real ales and 70 malt whiskies; the bistro serves “ample and tasty” meals; in the Fell restaurant, Malcolm Ennis, the head chef, cooks traditional French/English dishes. “We ate in the bistro both evenings and found the plainer dishes, such as fish and chips, and pie of the day, to be the best.” A residents” lounge with a log fire is “a bonus” when the pub, open to locals, is busy.
