About the Pub

**More beer scores please!**

Great atmosphere and great beers - featuring Langdale Brewing (the sister business) and other local ales. Hearty Lakeland food for hungry hunters. Residents can recover after their exertions in the nearby spa with large indoor pool. Autumn beer festival.
