Utterly unspoilt local, serving seriously good food with cask ales and cider in the summer when the terrace is in full flower

In the land of rugged hills and wooded valleys, you approach down a winding lane between high hedges; once round the final bend, the low-slung farmhouse-inn comes into view. Welcome to an utterly unspoilt little local. Inside: four small slate-floored rooms with beams and low ceilings, long settles and log fires, and a bar that is strictly for drinking – there's little room for anything else. Find three cask ales (two local, one guest) and traditional cider in summer. Across the passage: a room serving proper fresh food – snacks or full meals – and two dining rooms sparkling with glass and cutlery. The blackboard advertises dishes with a contemporary slant, and beef and Herdwick lamb reared in the valley. The food is so good it gets busy; in summer you can wander onto a flowery terrace.
