A dog-friendly local with merry log fires, great microbrewery ales and local homemade food - civilised but laid-back and great for walkers

Step into a welcoming series of candlelit rooms with rug-strewn floors, cream and red walls, polished period furniture, old stone fireplaces, some rather grand paintings and dogs and booted walkers. The central bar heaves with hand pumps dispensing Cumbrian microbrewery ales (including Dent Aviator), hand-pressed juices from Witherslack, and many wines by the glass. Bag a seat by the fire and settle in for supper; the changing menu announces a crowd-pleasing selection of pub dishes, much prepared from fresh local produce. Start with roasted tomato and goat's cheese tart, follow with Galloway beef and ale pie. It's with chips and in-season vegetables, or whole-tail battered scampi. It's super civilised yet nicely laid-back.
