Ian Mapp left this review about Sticklebarn Tavern

Was surprised to see that I would have a choice of three boozers in the area. Was looking forward to this but not sure what put us off first.

Was it the middle class, yet unsupervised kids throwing the cushions around and running riot? Was it the real ales at £3.90 a pint.

Probably the latter, as they had little control of the former.

Not really for me - more for the glamping families over the road.

After a horrendous experience at the ODG we walked here. What a lovely change, friendly , dog friendly too. Beer was excellent and food very good. I will always use this when in this neck of the woods .

Will Larter left this review about The Stickle Barn Tavern

When this place first opened it was very much a barn: soulless, noisy and completely out of character for the Lake District. In recent years it has improved quite a bit, and the previous reviewer's experience with poor quality ales is not what I have found. In fact I stayed for a week at the cottage next door this summer and was in the Stickle Barn most nights, when I found the beer to be always in good condition. I usually had the Barngates Tag Lag, but there were alternative beers available from other local breweries, including Coniston.

The interior has been split up into distinct areas, to reduce that barn-like atmosphere and make it more like a proper pub. At busy times the benches at the front take the overspill. For a traditional lakeland pub, you still can't beat the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel further up the valley, or the Britannia down the road in Elterwater. But if you want to slake your thirst after a day on the fells, there's no need to by-pass this one, in my opinion.
