The King George IV Inn
Offering a warm welcome, good food and accommodation in Eskdale
We are a traditional Inn dating back to the 15th century, where our aim is to provide our customers with a warm and friendly service and atmosphere. Where local really means local, from the owner and staff, to the locally sourced great real ales and produce.
We are both dog and child friendly and have a range of eating areas such as the bar, where you can enjoy the cosy log fire and a craic [chat] with the locals; the restaurant, with lovely views of Brantrake Crags, Cropple How, Raven Crag and Latter Barrow, or outside in the beer garden (if the weather's right!) where you can look out for The La'al Ratty, the miniature steam railway. There is also a Games room to keep the kids entertained and lots of info on where to go and visit on your holidays. The King also offers recently refurbished self-catering accommodation with all the mod-cons. These sleep from a range of 2 to 8 people. As well as our self-catering accommodation we have two double en-suite letting rooms in the inn.
At The King George we offer a range of high quality meals as well as pub grub. Our chefs make as much as they can on the premises including our popular steak & ale pie and smoked haddock fishcakes. We try to keep the food miles down by sourcing many of our produce locally including Cumberland sausage from Bewley's of Bootle, Taw House Beef-Sunday Roast and King George burger other suppliers include Wilson's of Egremont and Donan's fish of Whitehaven.
Again, as with the food we try our best to supply many of our real ales from local northern breweries, and through the busy periods frequently having up to nine on at any one time means that there's a wide selection from lights, to mild's and stouts. With over 150 different real ales in the area, our nine hand pulls change daily. Our nearest breweries are Strands Brewery in Nether Wasdale, with great beers such as Red Screes and Errmmm..., then Great Gable, (their Wastwater Gold is lush), and then there is Yates Brewery, Ulverston, Coniston and Foxfield Brewery to name just a few. Plus our Guest ales from Moorhouses Brewery in Burnley, Bank Top Brewery in Bolton, Prospect Brewery in Wigan, and Partners in Dewsbury. We're not "best inn the west" for nowt. As well as our selection of real ales we also boast a wide selection of wines sold by the bottle or glass, over 100 single and highland malt whiskies and a variety of soft drinks and juices for children and drivers.
If real ale is your thing, then come to The King!
