About the Pub

This inn has many attractions in addition to its four varying, well-kept, usually Cumbrian beers and a popular beer festival in May. (Show your card for a CAMRA discount). For the hungry, Rod's pies satisfy the heartiest of fell walkers' appetites. The former 17th century farm house is grade II listed and boasts a priest's hole, a spiral staircase to the upper floors and the widest single-span, sandstone hearth in England. There is a boules pitch in the large landscaped garden and the adjacent St Mary's church is famous for its Viking cross and other early Viking/Christian artefacts.

Gosforth is a nice large village with a good local bakery, a church with its Viking Cross and 4 real ale pubs in total. Local Tourist attractions and a short drive in several different directions include Wasdale Head, Wastwater, Great Gable, Sca Fell, Muncaster Castle, Ravenglass and Eskdale steam railway (9 miles into the most lovely valley);seaside at Seascale, St Bees and Ravenglass; Ravenglass nature reserve; the spectacular Cumbrian coastal railway, and lots and lots of lovely walks, some gentle and some strenuous! There is a strong art and craft tradition in the area and the outlets are worth seeking out. There are campsites in the area and plenty of pub, hotel and B&B accommodations. The pub is an hour's walk (2.9 miles) to the nearest Station (Seascale) but there is a local taxi firm in the village (Gosforth Taxis) charging reasonable rates. West Cumbria Pub of the Year 2017
