Staying close by on a camp site this was a welcome stop off for dinner. The setting is a little "dated" could do with a lick of paint and update - same with the menu. The food was ok, the steak pie was very tender. Unfortunately the cheese was a little hard on the cheese board. Pretty average all round.

We were staying at a farmhouse in Braithwaite and went to the Middle Ruddings for dinner. We had our two Springer Spaniels who were not only made very welcome, but were given a bowl of water and a complimentary pork sausage!! Staff was excellent, meal was tremendous and the waiter Sam was outstanding. We will be back to Braithwaite and...

It was a pleasure to spend two nights in this friendly hotel, where the staff were helpful and the food excellent. It was good to be away from busy Keswick, and surrounded by beautiful countryside - accessible without having to use the car.

Had a film crew of six people stay for two nights in August while they were working in and around the local area. From the initial booking, to the final check-out the staff were fantastic. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well presented and the whole hotel had a very welcome and cosy feel about it. We ate both nights...

We had eaten here before but we're quite disappointed this visit.We were given a smallish table almost completely covered with crockery,cutlery,glasses,flower vase cruet, mats etc. There was almost no room for plates, let alone dishes for veg, so it was extremely cluttered . I ordered lamb which was very tender,but my husband ordered steak which was tough and grissly.This was...

We needed two nights in the Lake District and the Inn was able to help with one and we would have stayed for a second. The room met our needs and breakfast was good with lots on offer. We would come back as handy to Keswick and the surrounding area.
