Stayed at the Mortal Man for 1 night at the end of November. Room was very comfortable & clean. The bar/restaurant was very busy in the evening with diners, it was a Saturday mind. However, this did not leave much room for drinkers if you did not want a table for dinner. The actual bar area is pretty small so felt a bit in the way standing at it having my pint. I did manage to sit on 1 of 2 bar stools to one side after a while so ok in the end. They had 4 ales on, all local from Cumbria, good condition and tried them all - couldn't decide between Hawkshead Sally Birkett's Ale or Loweswater Gold as my favourite. Both excellent. Took a 6 mile walk round the valley with beautiful scenery the next morning. This place is well worth a visit. Oh, be warned, if travelling up by car and using satnav, beware of huge potholes in the little lane it sends you on up to the pub - especially on the sharp right hand bend! There is a better way in as I found the next day but I did arrive in the dark.

Beer choice and quality was top notch - 4 Cumbrian ales to choose from including Coniston Bluebird, Loweswater Gold, a Hesket Newmarket Ale and a Hawkshead. Great beer garden as well - also, had the vegetable Tagine along with Tzatziki as side dish, all homemade and delicious - no issue with paying slightly higher prices for quality and location.

great for a pint in the garden or the bar, but for a meal, totally hit and miss. You might get what you ordered, if not, check your neighbours table. Same goes for the bill. Fine if it works in your favour. otherwise, a shambles. Avoid the garden room, looks nice but nobody comes to serve you. Understaffed. The manager must know how many bookings they have taken for the evening. Shame for such a nice location.

Very handy for a refreshment after the walk from Ambleside. Good selection of real ales and flavoured hot drinks for the tee totalers in your party. A little pricey but a nice old fashioned country pub.

Came in on the strength of "CAMRA's Lake District pub walks".
Good range of beer and excellent garden as the book says. However, and I don't blame the author of the book (!) we were a bit hacked off, as a group, that the tables in the main bar were occupied by a family consisting of about four small children (aged under ten) who had a large chair each and a pair of tables to themselves forcing us outside. Parents, needless to say, seemed not a jot embarrassed let alone apologetic. Pubs have to decide if they are catering for paying adults or acting as creches!
