Stylish little bar, several restaurant areas, own-brewed beers and bar meals as well as innovative restaurant choices; stunning views and lovely bedrooms

Of course, many customers are here to stay in the beautifully furnished bedrooms or enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant, but at lunchtime it's the smart little bar that walkers head for. The star attraction then are their own-brewed ales on handpump from the Barngates brewery, including Brathay Gold, Cat Nap, Cracker Ale, Goodhews Dry Stout, Pale, Red Bull Terrier and Tag Lag, plus their own weiss beer. They also offer 16 wines by the glass (including pudding wines) from a fine list, 25 malt whiskies and 17 gins (including ones to which they add their own botanicals). There are leather bar stools by the slate-topped counter, leather club chairs, beams and oak floorboards, and old Lake District photographs on the walls. The three restaurant areas are elegant; there are plans to open a coffee lounge. Sit at the wooden tables and benches on grass opposite the building for spectacular views across the fells, and if you come in spring or summer the flowering bulbs are lovely. Please note: dogs are allowed in the bar only.
