Winter is here and the peaks will soon be covered with snow…… pop in for a pint or something to eat after a day out on the fells. Walkers and dogs more than welcome. Blazing open fires await…..
The Joys of Spring
Posted: March 3rd, 2021
At last, something to feel positive about. The weather is warming up, the daffodils are emerging and most importantly, you will soon be able to buy a proper pint and travel beyond the end of your garden path. We are really looking forward to welcoming you back. Bookings are coming in fast now, including for our unique room-only offer from 12th April, and our B&B rooms are filling up for 17th May and beyond. We expect to be full right through the year now, so don't miss out, and make sure you book. See you soon!

Still open for now...

Not quite the festive season we hoped for! We are still open for rooms and food. Please ring or email to reserve. If you have a booking already, please do check before travelling because we may be forced to close at short notice. Apart from that, Merry Christmas!

We all need a break in this strange year, and where better than the Lakes? We are now taking bookings to stay over the festive period, or book our delicious 3 course Christmas Dinner on the 25th. Details on the Christmas and Food pages
Opening 2nd December

LAKE DISTRICT is TIER 2
We are pleased to re-open and would love to welcome you back for a bit of much needed seasonal cheer. As well as food and drink you can stay for B&B. Book in confidence - if we have to shut at short notice we will happily refund you. You can book B&B rooms for Christmas and New Year at the Badger Bar on our website, and further details will follow shortly. All customers must have a substantial meal and you cannot just buy drinks. A pint and a pack of crisps does not count, sorry ;) We will definitely be open at lunchtime and in the evening, with bookings recommended. To all our friends in Tier 3 areas, sorry not to see you, come and visit next year.
Re-opening on 2nd December?

It looks likely that we will be allowed to open on the 2nd. Provided we are not in Tier 3...fingers crossed! We would love to welcome you back for a bit of much needed seasonal cheer. As well as food and drink we expect to be able to offer B&B. Book in confidence - if we have to shut at short notice we will happily refund you.

CLOSED from 4th November

Here we go again...
We are closed from 10am Wednesday 4th November for at least 4 weeks. If you have booked a room directly with us within this period, please email us and we will be happy to either offer a refund or defer any deposit paid for a future visit. Any Booking.com bookings, please cancel via them, we cannot do this for you. If you have booked to dine with us on the 4th or after, we are sorry but we cannot now stay open for you.
During lockdown we may not be able to answer the phone. Please email us for a quicker response.
If the government had any competence, they would have had a two week lockdown in October, but because they are the most useless bunch in a very long time, they ignored advice, and we now have to shut for much longer, and more people will die. Thanks guys!
COVID TIER ONE
Posted: October 13th, 2020
13th October. TIER ONE.
Cumbria and the Lake District is in the lowest category, so you can still visit. We have strict systems to keep you safe.
Tables are spaced out and separated by barriers and there is table service only now, which is an interesting idea in a pub! We are making it work, even if it does slow everything down. Thanks for your patience. Because of the extra demands on our staff, answering the phone is sometimes not possible. PLEASE EMAIL any enquiries if possible. You will get a quicker response!
Room bookings are busier than normal, so please book using our website to get the room you would like. Table reservations are advised in the evening and for weekend lunches, because we now only have limited space. Please send us an email with your table request for lunch (choose 12, 12.30, 1pm or 2pm) or evening meal (5.30pm, 6.30pm or 7.30pm). With the exception of the 6.30pm sitting which is in our "no pets" dining room, dogs are more than welcome at other times but please let us know so that we can allocate a table in the bar area. firstname.lastname@example.org
