Good Pub Guide Recommended

White-painted stone inn on cobbled alley with character bar, local ales and good wines and enjoyable food; lovely bedrooms

This is a particularly pretty village surrounded by fells including the Langdale Pikes flanking the Dungeon Ghyll Force waterfall. The inn backs on to the churchyard and dates back to the 17th c and there's plenty of history to the place. The rambling beamed bar has flagstones and stripped oak boards, pews, armchairs and cosy window seats, paintings on cream walls and a woodburning stove. Hawkshead Bitter, Kirkby Lonsdale Monumental Blonde and Marstons Wainwright on handpump served by helpful, friendly staff. There are a couple of dining rooms (one is red-walled) with a two-way woodburning stove and leather banquettes; background music. Bedrooms are attractive, comfortable and warm and several are dog-friendly; dogs get a welcome pack and they offer dog walking and sitting too. Disabled access. Turner stayed here in 1818 when painting the picture known as 'Ruskin's View'. Thursday is market day.
