Good Pub Guide Recommended

Cheerful pub with good food and fair choice of drinks, and fine views from the upstairs verandah; bedrooms

A father and son team keep this bustling pub spic and span and there's always a good mix of regulars and visitors. The chatty main bar has sandstone flooring, stone walls, cushioned wheelback chairs around a mix of tables and an open fire in a raised stone fireplace. The downstairs eating area has more cushioned dining chairs around wooden tables on pale wooden floorboards, stone walls and ceiling joists, and a two-way fire in a raised stone fireplace that separates this room from the coffee lounge with its comfortable leather chairs and sofas. It's best to book to be sure of a table in the upstairs restaurant. Theakstons Black Bull and a guest such as Banks's Sunbeam on handpump, a dozen wines by the glass and 28 malt whiskies; background music, darts, pool and dominoes. The lovely views over the Eden Valley and the Pennines are best enjoyed from seats on the upstairs verandah; there are also seats on the back terrace. Bedrooms are comfortable and breakfasts are hearty. This is under the same ownership as the Cross Keys in Carleton.
