There are only two pubs in Buttermere where you can eat in the evenings. At our B&B they recommended this one because 'the prices were lower and the portions were bigger'. At £8 for half a chicken and chips, you can't disagree with that.
We went mid-week and out of season, but despite being in our 40s were the youngest in the pub. The decor, it has to be said, was probably older than us.
Don't let that put you off, though. The two beers we tried, Crag Rat and Thirst Out, were good local brews and they had another half a dozen on tap. If you're lucky enough to visit the Lakes when it's not raining, save enough energy to walk to the pub so you can sample a few more.
