Other pubs in Ullswater, Eden Valley and the North Pennines

Anyone familiar with Askham Hall (hotel), a few minutes walk away, and the George & Dragon pub at nearby Clifton will sense the same mix of informality, quirkiness and love of countryside when they step through the doors of this 17th century inn.

The George & Dragon is closed for the time being because of a fire in June 2022 but its sister pub, the Queen’s Head at Askham’ (see above), under four miles (6.4km) away, is offering an expanded lunch service. Both pubs and Askham Hall (hotel) are part of the Askham Collection. 

One pub awarded with a Michelin star in early 2022, another one with all sorts of accolades, a bar belonging to a Cumbrian brewery and a couple of pubs owned by the community (one of them open in July 2022) are amongst the places in this north eastern part of the county.
