Lovely romantic interior, food bordering on the exquisite, friendly service, log fire... if the Eagle & Child served good beer then it would be a top pub. Unfortunately it's wanting in this respect, with five sessionable cask bitter/golds from local breweries. My partner and I choked down a couple of sulphur bombs while waiting for our meal. There are some decent basic bottles available (Punk, Franziskaner, etc.) so these may be a viable alternative to ticking the beer equivalent of a sulphur mine. Or maybe I got it on a bad night, and at any rate you can't fault the condition of the cask. Verdict: come for the food and the atmosphere and leave your ticking notebook at home!

Stayed here overnight because it’s a short walk from Hawkshead, which is well worth the trip by itself. It’s a two room pub, packed with lots of kitsch. Small bar with five casks and various other offerings. Friendly staff. Decent food. Has its own car park. Rooms were clean and quiet. Handful of picnic tables in the picturesque back garden, and a handful more across the street with a small brook running by. Very dog friendly. Worth a stop.

Superb village pub in the heart of the Lake District. Multi-roomed feel, with a great bar, the ceilings and walls adorned with past pumpclips. 5 pumps dispense beer in superb condition, locally brewed beers feature well, alongside those from further afield, Pilsner Urquell on draught, along with Erdinger, however, I did notice other European pump badges behind the bar. The food is freshly cooked and locally sourced and is excellent.
