This was our second visit to the Horse and Farrier and we booked a table online a few hours before we arrived. Staff were very accommodating upon arrival and we were shown to our reserved table by the fireplace. The atmosphere was cosy and appropriate to the setting. When ordering food, I was told that the item on the specials... More

Had lunch mid week. Very quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lunches were very tasty and the general ambience was good. We will visit again in the future.

We'd reserved a table for 8 of us, sadly some of the party were stuck in traffic. The staff could not be better! They didn't rush us to order... Happily said they could wait for our late comers and even as time was ticking explained they could even do some dishes past last service. The food was amazing and the... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Horse & Farrier Inn in Threlkeld on our recent visit to the Lake District. Warm and friendly people greeted us and took us to our table. It all came with courteous table service; the meals we had were very good, we tried the Steak & Ale Pie, Scampi and Chicken Curry and all... More

I had been out for the morning visiting Castlerigg stone circle and had been out for a long walk and needed some lunch. Found this pub purely by accident and was so glad I did, the food was fantastic, the staff friendly and the beer tasty. What more could you want for a country pub lunch.

We have eaten here several times when on holiday in the Lake District and have always found the food to be excellent and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is great and the staff are friendly and genuinely interested. As on previous visits, it was very busy, so it is always wise to book - even mid-week. I would definitely recommend for...

I'm on my hols, a week in Cumbria. I like to have a little treat on my hols. This village was the nearest to my 'campsite' (see other reviews), and looked charming. A quick check of the menu cabinet confirmed I was right. Going inside it became obvious I might need to change my shirt tonight and booked a table... More

As usual this is an excellent pub with food above average in quality of sourcing, cooking, presentation and value for money. Good range and good service. Beer real and looked after. Dog friendly in one part of pub. Consistently good.

Stopped here for dinner, as the reviews looked pretty good. Well I wasn't impressed. My husband had fish and chips. While the fish was nice, the chips were awful. Frozen chips, and not very good ones. I had the burger which again just tasted like a cheap burger. I won't be going back.

Staying at the Horse and Farrier Inn is an experience in itself, but one I would rather not repeat. Upon arrival we were welcomed and shown to room no 1. Getting up the stairs in itself is something not to be desired. If you make it past the kitchen door without being smacked in the face with the cooking and... More
