We went here for our works Christmas meal. Unfortunately we were all disappointed. Turkey didn't taste good, overdone Yorkshire puds, disappointing starters, vegetables and puddings. Wouldn't return based on this meal. Sorry!

Quick service and yet fresh really good meals would definitely recommend. Chips are really nice as we're the hot and spicy chicken wings my son had. Friendly staff as well.

Sitting watching the world go by with one eye, and through the kitchen door with the other is an interesting pass time. Been a bit of a foodie carries its own problems, it makes one a bit fussy what passes through the lips on the way south. Well, listening to the chorus of pings as the wall of microwaves does...

An example of what you see is what you get. An old, traditional hotel, originally serving the cattle market, which is now moved. Simple UK pub menu. Very dated, but huge open fires are very welcoming when it is freezing outside. Friendly competent staff. Food comes in quantity, but seems to be from a catering supplier. Nice chips. Standard-portion fish.... More

Stopped here on a brief visit to Penrith on our way to Carlisle. The service was excellent! I had the Whitby scampi and it was fantastic. By far my favourite meal since arriving in the UK! My husband had the steak and ale pie and found the gravy bland although the portion size was good.

We had a very good portion of 'feathered steak' served piping hot with good quality vegetables and a delicious sauce. Quite a few things on the menu and Specials board appealed and we'd dine there again. The only grumble was the rather unwelcoming barmaid who could do with a lesson in how to smile - although the food waitress was... More

I went with my parents on a Sunday evening. They had run out of roasts which was a good sign meaning they had been busy. Dad ordered sweet and sour chicken, and didn't complain. Mum ordered some beef which she said was delicious. I ordered Thai fish cakes which were very nice. There weren't really many veg options, although Gluten... More
