Herdwick Inn, Penruddock

England CA11 0QU
Tel: 44 176 848 3007's insider take:

Unprepossessing from the outside and rather near the highway, this 18th-century inn has a cozy interior and an impressive pub/restaurant. Dishes run from the refined (pork liver pâté, baked local salmon with chive and lemon white wine sauce) to the hearty and veddy British (lamb shoulder braised in Jennings Cumberland Ale, pan-fried steaks, roasted crispy half-duckling). When the inn changed ownership in June 2006, vegetarian selections were added to the menu, including a braised leek and creamed mushroom crumble and spiced vegetable curry with broccoli, cauliflour, carrots, and potatoes. To tipple, there's a good range of single malt Scotch whiskeys, Jennings real ales, and a fine selection of wines. Upstairs are five comfortable bedrooms under wood beams.
