The food was lovely and came quickly despite the pub being quite full. One of our party had wine and she said it was not nice at all. The main problem is that there were loads of dogs in the pub. More than we have ever seen before at a pub. This wasn't too bad for us ( we are...

We had a good break staying at the Watermill Inn. This is not a traditional hotel but an Inn with a brewery attached. However, the facilities were of good hotel standard, clean, modern and comfortable. The food, beer and ambience of the Inn were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was fortunate to meet the brewer as I...

Great to revisit now the refurb is finished thanks to the floods. The beer is still on top form and the food was lovely with good portion sizes. The price is still good and the atmosphere is relax and cosy.

We stayed here for a one night break. The room was comfortable once we turned the radiator thermostat down. We enjoyed an excellent evening meal and good local ales. The breakfast was excellent. Service was professional and helpful.

Having spent a weekend in the Lakes we called in The Watermill, on our way home, as we have several times in the past. The food, service & friendliness are excellent, & yet again did not disappoint. The steak pie was amazing.

Me and my "boss" :-) stayed over for one January Friday night. We have visited the pub several times before and always fancied staying the night so we could sample the beers properly. There is good and not so good to report: Good - the pub itself is really great. The condition of the building (recently refurbished due to the...

We walked in the door and were treated like we were regulars by both the staff and the regulars. We love the fact that "dog friendly" means all canines are welcome as long as their owners behave. A comfortable afternoon having a place not by the fire led to an evening dinner that was both delicious and generous in the...
