Excellent pub - landlord may even buy you a pint if you've walked and not added to his parking headaches! Must have had about 9 bitters on in the 3 days we were there & after much consideration the Loweswater Gold gets the nod. Didn't make it to that Beatrix Potter place mind you

First visit: lovely exterior, and inside not overly tarty, hope they resist any further opening out and gentrification. Good choice of beers and mine was in good condition.

Having attempted too late to book a table, I arrived here as a party of six on Saturday evening and struck lucky with a big enough table in the bar (the better place to be in any case). Five local beers included Tag Lag and Laughing Gravy (also Hawkshead Bitter and Brodies Prime) both in fine condition.

My beef and ale casserole with dumplings was delicious although the chips were more of the small roast potato kind. Interesting cheeses.

A good fire at the far end (which can be too hot to be close to). Overall an excellent and friendly pub.

Pleasant village pub that trades off it's fame as part of the Jemima Puddleduck story, being located 100yds from Beatrix Potter's house. The interior is cosy, with a real fire burning in the bar room and a mixture of flagged and carpeted floors. A more formal restaurant room is behind the bar. Potter-ana abounds, with Peter Rabbits and Puddleducks and pictures from the book around the main bar room. The clock above the outside entrance (see picture)is interesting and a nice touch. Lots of tourists but not the regular sterile food-oriented Lakeland pub with boring beers- a great local selection included Loweswater Gold, Barngates Cracker & Pride of Westmorland, and Hawkshead Bitter and IPA. Resisted temptation of yet another Hawkshead Bitter to try the Loweswater Gold, a light beers that was excellent and very quaffable. Food was being served and played a role that didn't overshadow the drinks operation- a good balance. Had a bowl of soup too, very nice and warming on a rotten day. Service friendly and professional. Really liked it here, would return.

5 excellent local cask ales. Good (restaurant style) food too.

Well worth a visit!
