Bustling hotel with thriving bar, several real ales, enjoyable food and good surrounding walks; comfortable bedrooms

There are walks straight from the front door here and they have leaflets describing some of the routes; many customers then come to this well run inn for lunch. The popular U-shaped bar has hops on the gantry, quite a few original period features, stripped-stone walls, high wooden stools by the counter, a comfortable tweed banquette, various dining chairs and little stools around a mix of tables and fresh flowers; the cosy small lounge has armchairs and an open fire. You can eat in the bar or in two separate restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff serve Black Sheep Bitter and four guests from breweries such as Hawkshead, Kirkby Lonsdale, Pennine and Tirril on handpump, 11 wines by the glass, more than 30 malt whiskies, 25 gins and a good choice of fruit juices and pressés; background music, TV, darts, board games, newspapers and magazines. The tree-sheltered streamside garden across the road has picnic-sets. Bedrooms are well appointed and very comfortable (some have disabled access, others are dog-friendly) and breakfasts are excellent. Disabled access.
