“The meals were just perfect after a day out walking in the wind and rain.”

Whether you have just walked 15 miles, been paddling with the children, or photographing the wildlife, there will be something here to suit you, and food is served all day between 12 and 9 in the holiday season.

We are proud of our reputation for good, wholesome, homemade food and have always emphasised local produce, whether Lakeland lamb and beef, fresh lobster from St Bees, or free range eggs from Frizington, and we were the first outlet in the area to introduce vegan dishes as a permanent feature of our standard menu.

Our bar too is stocked with only local ales, and carries a range of Cumbrian spirits and lager, while we offer a variety of carefully selected wines to complement our menu.

For most of our residents about to set out on the next stage of their Coast to Coast walk breakfast too is an important meal, and we make sure they have a good choice of wholesome dishes to set themselves up for the day ahead.

We provide packed lunches as well, which are also available to non-residents.
