An excellent foodie pub, certainly making the picturesque drive here, including views of Cartmel Fell, worthwhile. It's still very much the village local.
Expect a building largely dating from the 17th century, with oak beams, flagstone floors an open fires.
On the food front, starters such as 'Homemade Soup of the Day with Warm Rustic Bread'; 'Potted Crab Marinated in Lemon & Chili'; 'Fell House Farm Pork, Sweet Chili & Black Pudding Terrine with Apple & Tomato Chutney'; 'Garlic-Baked Field Mushrooms with Caramelised Red Onion & Goats Cheese' and 'Lancashire Haggis with a Wild Mushroom Fricassée & Smoked Parmesan Cream'.
Dishes such as 'Beer-Battered Haddock with Hand-Cut Chunky Chips & Marrow Fat Mushy Peas'; 'Vegetable Potato Cake with Creamy Leek Fondue & Topped with a Poached Duck Egg'; 'Homemade Local Beef & Ale Pie'; 'Lamb House Farm Lamb Cutlets with Mint & Red Wine Gravy' and 'Local Sirloin Steak with Battered Onion Rings, Roasted Tomato & Grilled Field Mushroom' might follow.
If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce'; 'Crème Brulée with Damson & Plum Sorbet' or 'Chocolate Terrine with Raspberry Coulis'.
