We had walked from the other end of the valley up to the fort on Hardknott pass, then to the pub for late lunch and too many beers. Great food and service: the barman gave us a lift back to Stanley House.

We weren't impressed with the vast amount of tables and chairs crammed into every space (made all the more obvious due to the emptiness, despite it being a warm Friday evening). We weren't sure who they are catering fir but tapas, pizzas and burgers are...More
