Former coaching inn with local ales, well chosen wines, smashing food and seats outside; smart bedrooms

The attractive bars and sizeable restaurant here are civilised and friendly. The relaxed reception room has bright rugs on flagstones, leather chairs around a low table in front of an open fire, and a table in a private nook to one side of the reception desk. The main bar area, through wrought-iron gates, has more cheerful rugs, assorted wooden farmhouse chairs and tables, grey panelling topped with yellow-painted walls, photographs of the Estate and of the family with hunting dogs, various sheep and fell pictures and some high bar stools by the bar counter. Eden Gold, Hawkshead Bitter and a changing guest beer such as Cumberland Great Corby Blonde on handpump, 20 wines by the glass from a well chosen list and interesting local liqueurs; background music and TV. To the left of the entrance the sizeable restaurant consists of four open-plan rooms: there are plenty of old pews and church chairs around tables set for dining, a woodburning stove and a contemporary open kitchen. Outside, chunky tables and chairs are set in a decoratively paved front area and in a high-walled enclosed suntrap courtyard. Bedrooms are stylish and comfortable and breakfasts very good. Partial disabled access.
