Set at the junction of two mountain passes alongside the pristine setting of Buttermere this place has the draw of being situated within Englandís best natural setting. The area is stunning and on a sunny day the terrace is a fantastic place to have a drink, despite being a slapdash concrete construction - the views however are amazing. The only piece of grass the pub owns is out of bounds to the public, as are dogs within the bar so on a lesser day the Bridge Hotel next door might be a better choice. The pub offers a good menu, but as options in this area are limited the prices are high. The same can be said for the drinks, but they do have a range of local real ales to choose from. The decor is traditional modern and comfortable enough.
