user reviews of the Highland Drove, Great Salkeld

It was dark by the time we got to this village. But you could tell it is an archetypal English village with a lovely stone church and this pub. We'd hoped to eat here. They advertise that they serve food from 6pm until 9pm. But shortly after 8pm, they had decided that they didn't want any customers. After failing to find food in the previous 3 pubs, we'd hoped to get something to eat here. The food smelt good, which only made us feel worse. Onto the beer - Theakston Black Bull Bitter & Eden Kyloe's Kushie were supplemented by Keswick Gold. A nice pub in a lovely village. But they need to get their act together where food is concerned.

Stayed at the pub recently and give it a big thumbs up.
The food was excellent, we had a slight problem with the steak but this was resolved very quickly and without any fuss whatsoever. The pie that I had was just like Ma used to make (from County Durham).
The beer was also very good (we found the pub using the GBG). A mild was on tap as were three other guest ales. All very well kept.
The room was clean and tidy when we arrived and can recommend the hearty English breakfast.
We left full of good food and beer.
The owbers also have a second pub close by, must be good too I imagine.
Don't miss out on a visit here. We will be back when we can, we live near Bath.

This is a great country pub that also does food and has some rooms.

There are 3 real ales (two regulars and one guest)

The only reason it doesn't get 10 is because the guest is not always a local beer (there are over 20 breweries in Cumbria to choose from these days)

Good atmosphere, sandstone floor (the traditional local material) real fire in winter, pool table.

Super pub, real ales, First class restaurant attached,but a locals pub as well. Landlord definitely a character.
Off the beaten track but well worth seeking out.
