We took a walk around the Dalegarth area from the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway. The scenery was great but rain for most of the day rather dampened our spirits. As we came back towards the road from Gill Force we saw Brook House and realised...More

Brook House Inn is a fairly traditional pub which offers dining in the bar area, a 'snug' and a restaurant area. Dogs are allowed in the bar but nowhere else. It is in a fairly isolated location but is a good place to stop for...More

We ate here this week while staying locally? The food was very well cooked and extremely tasty! I especially loaded the choice of vegetarian dishes! My husband loved the Haddock!

Very little to complain about other than the price. The food was nice and good portions. The price slightly higher than you'd pay elsewhere in the county but this is reflective of the isolated location and little places to eat. No real complaints. Decent selection...More

Staff were friendly and welcoming. The place was comfortable, clean and pleasant. They had a good selection of interesting gins and tonics. Perfectly located near the Dalegarth stop of the R&E train. It’s a shame there wasn’t a later train back towards Ravenglass!

Our imaginative menu, including vegetarian options and scrumptious puddings, is complemented by blackboard specials and a varied wine list. Delicious home-made food is available all day. Dining in our restaurant, bar or snug is always a pleasure. We serve real ales, treated on their journey from barrel to bar with tender loving care. These include Cumbria Legendary Ales Langdale, Hawkshead and a range of guest beers from Local Brewers such as Yates, Barngates and Ennerdale. We also have beers from many others brewers around the Country.Brook House Inn is one of the 3 hosts of the Boot Beer Festival, Boot Beer Festival is held in June every year and is one of the biggest beer festivals in the Lake District. Don't forget we also have 180 Malt Whiskies to try!
