Customer Comments

Wonderful relaxing break

Very friendly and welcoming, family run pub with rooms. Really excellent food. The rooms were cosy with a great view over the Winster Valley. Easily accessible from Lancaster or Windermere I would thoroughly recommend a stay and/dine there


‘Great Place To Stay’

We enjoyed a great weekend stay here. The location is pretty much idyllic. The food was fabulous and the staff were friendly and very attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. The room had great views over the countryside. All in all, a great place to escape for a few days.



It exceeded expectations, every member of staff was an absolute pleasure to come into contact with. And the outside courtyard rooms was a massive surprise and bonus. we loved it. The food at breakfast and during the evening was some of the best I’ve ever eaten.

Lovely meal

Four of us ate here on Wednesday night. Very friendly service and the food was lovely. Plenty of choice especially on whiskey and gins and beers and the servicein the restaurant was spot on. The steak and kidney pudding was excellent as was all four meals and the desserts to die for. Highly recommended. Another visit is definable called for.
