The staff were amongst the best we have come across in our long experience. Plenty areas to relax in and lovely garden. Good location. We enjoy good food but found this a bit too conscious of being recherche . The placing of food on boards, although fashionable at present, is not so convenient for diners to manage.If weather had permitted we would have enjoyed putting and if energy had permitted also table tennis. Pool was also there and games so provision for all ages and weathers.
We stayed at the Black Bull for one night on our way to Scotland. The hotel and all the staff were very welcoming. We ate in the hotel and the food was very good and great value for money. The breakfast the next morning was also great. Thankyou for looking after us. Just to mention that we had our dog with us and she was also made welcome.
Very much enjoyed our stay at The Fat Lamb. The staff were very helpful. The room was comfortable and the linen was very clean, but an update to the room was needed. Like the rest of the hotel, everything was clean, but a little tired. This would not put us off staying there again because the staff were friendly and efficient. The food was excellent, not fine dining, but really very good home cooked meals and plenty to eat. Worth going for the food alone. There is a nature reserve, but this is not accessible for disabled visitors, but a nice garden for sitting out and taking meals.
Overall the Hotel was Excellent, Food and Staff Superb, and the Location of the Hotel was a plus being close to walks and sites to be visited
If you are not on EE or ORANGE, then at present you do not have a phone connection. The Internet was fine downstairs but not good in bedrooms, however, no phones or internet - A BONUS..... This is throughout the village and not just the Hotel - sadly, soon it will be all upgraded, just waiting on permissions

Eden Valley really is Cumbria's hidden gem. Rolling meadows and quiet country lanes weave through quaint villages, creating landscapes of breathtaking beauty. Situated on the path of Hadrien's Wall, Carlisle is a lively city, and a great location for exploring the surrounding fells. A wealth of historical landmarks lie on its doorstep, including the well-preserved Carlisle Castle and the Citadel.
