A hearty pub meal can really warm the cockles of the soul; particularly if you’ve been out climbing up a mountain or jumping into a stream all day. The pubs around Ullswater offer a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike and you won’t look out of place in your wellington boots, sat by a roaring fire with your dog, or chilling out in the beer garden eating an ice cream in the sun.
For a true glimpse of Cumbrian spirit (and the finest real ale) a trip to the local pub will tick all the boxes.
The Queen’s Head Inn set in the centre of the village of Tirril, which nestles on the edge of the Lake District National Park, is the epitome of an English Country Inn.
A country estate inn with a restaurant, bar and bedrooms. A comfortable and relaxing place where “the food is as delectable as the surroundings”, The independent. We grow and rear much of our own produce in our gardens and fields at our nearby sister establishment Askham Hall and on our family estate – the Lowther Estate in Cumbria.
Opened in April 2019, The Queen’s Head is a village pub with a difference just a two-minute walk from Askham Hall.
