“Enjoyable home-made food and Lakeland ales” - AA Inspector
Ash and Becky Dewar bought this busy Lakeland free house in 2013 and they have quickly put their stamp on the place. It’s now very much the village hub where locals can pop in for foaming pints of Loweswater Gold or one of 15 wines served by the glass. From the dough for the popular pizzas to the home-made burgers, everything is made from scratch. A typical meal might start with seafood pot with crusty bread and move on to game pie with braised red cabbage and mash. Leave room for sticky toffee pudding and gingerbread ice cream.

About The area
Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.
Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
