Possibly my favourite pub in a week's worth of the Inn Way to the Lake District.

At the end of a beautful mountain route from Barrow Door, it sits in an elevate position over the village with stunning views.

The Yates Bitter was absolutely first class.

An unforgettable afternoon blogged at

Perched on a hill above the village, the view is surprisingly not as good as might be expected. Take the road towards Whinlatter Pass and turn left just as it leaves the back of the village, winding up hill to the car park in front of the pub. There are two bars, a lounge and dining room to the right, a rather nice public bar to the left. In the latter, three hand pumps had local Yates Bitter and Cumberland Corby Blonde. The bar is a recent installation, with crude hand carving (reminiscent of misericords) in blackened wood reputedly recycled from a snooker table. Seating - benches and low stools - is upholstered in crimson throughout.

There's a high arch through to the front part of the room, with a bay window, disconcertingly below ground level, looking across the car park to the small garden. On the walls are some great engravings of Lake District scenery, and some old photos of the village. On the sound system: some R&B at a tolerable level.
