About the Pub

Located beside a watersports centre at Stithians reservoir, this old granite single-bar inn has become more food-led in recent years, but still functions as a welcoming local for those who simply want a drink ot two. The bar area is beamed with slate floors and high-backed settles, and a few round tables constructed out of old wooden barrels. There is a cosy snug to one side which can seat around 15 people. A huge granite firplace provides real fire warmth in winter. The beer garden is extensive. The pub hosts a great variety of events including themed food nights. Accommodation is in a self-catering cottage; there is also a small campsite adjacent. Free wireless broadband is available in the bar, and there is occasional live entertainment. There are no noisy machines in the bar, although there is often continuous 'musak' in the background. The pub is open all day during school holidays, otherwise as indicated. The weekday bus service is very limited but allows of a lunchtime pint or two.
