At this 500-year-old pub, restaurant, and inn in the heart of superb walking country, antiques, comfortable chairs, and prints and oil paintings furnish the cozy, beamed public rooms. The whole family can relax with a bar meal and Cumbrian ale on the terrace while taking in the village green and the rolling scenery beyond. The hearty traditional British food—from grilled sea bass fillet to thyme-breaded Brie—is popular with locals, as are the many whiskies and ales,
including a specially brewed Britannia Gold beer. The nine simple guest rooms (eight of which are en suite) are more modern in style, with large, comfy beds. Accommodation includes use of the nearby Langdale Spa's pool, sauna, and fitness room.
