We had walked up plenty of hills, so the 5 minutes upto the pub from the station did not put us off before our return journey home to Manchester.
Healthy number of people in during our Monday evening visit with a mix of diners and drinkers. Choice was Hawkshead Bitter, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Moorhouses Blond Witch. The Hawkshead was a fine pint, I had sampled a number of ales around the Lakes and wish I had chosen this one earlier!

A pub with potential, sadly lacking atmosphere.

Some good points are the childrens playground (Kendal is notorious for being anti-child, so a childrens playground is a bonus) and the views from the nearby Helm.

Bad points are bar prices and dire service from the barmaid. I won't be returning here after being ignored and then having to drink my drink in silence while the barmaid sat there texting away and completely blanking me.
A much better pub is the nearby Punchbowl. Just a shame they don't have a childrens playground :(

First of all, what a fantastic location. The steady climb up The Helm begins quite literally across from the pub.

15 minutes takes you to some fantastic views over the hills and dales. Another 15 minutes and you've reached the highest point of The Helm, with a view over Morecombe Bay.

We were booked in for one night B & B. The room was a decent size located within a farmhouse style building behind the pub.

We chose to eat in the locals part of the pub rather than the sterile restaurant and were kept entertained by the lighthearted Cumbria / Yorkshire banter.

The breakfast choice was extensive and very well served.

Only Wrongbow Cider on draught (nothing unusual there), but the Moorhouse's Blonde Witch was very tasty.

There is absolutely nothing in Oxenholme, besides the train station and this pub, but if you enjoy a bit of not too energy sapping hill walking with great views, this is well worth a one night stopover.

A brisk walk up from the station in the drizzle.Lots of literature in the pub about Tirral and other local breweries,but the beers on offer didnot include any local ales just rather boring Adnams,Charles Wells and Black Sheep.No food late afternoon,as the chef was out.Overall it looks nice,but not terribly impressed.Mind you better than sitting in the station.

Large, typical countryside pub a short walk from Oxenholme station, despite the name. It's pretty opened out although it has retained the feel of separate areas, these are traditionally furnished but are pretty spacious and not of particular architectural note. Also a more upmarket
Food plays a large role, with a menu served all day, but it's not a gastropub and you wouldn't feel out of place popping in for a pint.
Beer wise, Black Sheep, Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Landlord and Theakston's XB were available on my visit- a solid selection of nothing spectacular. Landlord reliable as ever and much enjoyed on my visit.
All in all, a perfectly decent pub and definitely worth a punt if you're in the area, but nothing in particular to go out of your way for.
