Will Larter left this review about Brook House Inn

Eskdale has become my most often visited Lake District valley in the last two or three years, so I have, as you'd expect, visited this and the other pubs quite a lot. The beer here, in my experience, is always good and often a bit less pricey than at the Woolpack up the road. They often have a Barngates beer (brewed at the Drunken Duck outside Hawkshead): Cracker, Tag Lag or the excellent Goodhew's Dry Stout. Although the interior of the pub strikes me as being a little too food oriented (each table, made from a slice of tree trunk, has its own place mats especially designed to cope with the distorted surface), there is a pleasant sun trap at the front for those magical days of unexpected sunshine. Eskdale is a beautiful valley with high level walks not far away, but the woodland walks near the river and the nearby falls are very relaxing, with the prospect of a beer adding to their charms.

Probably the pick of the pubs in Boot - mainly because of the Whisky collection and sampler menu.

Its also in the Good Beer Guide 2017, so the ales were in fine condition to.

Ghoulash was on the menu. Wish I had saved myself to eat here :-)

I have to take issue here with Graham. I went in here yesterday and although it serves food it was full of hikers & drinkers and definitely heavily biased towards good real ale. The pub is an absolute must for real ale fans. I only wished I didn't have to get the last train back to Ravenglass a half hour later.
