Winter opening - food served from midday until 8.30pm every day. Short days and dark long nights mean we are quiet at this time of year so the bar will close at 9.30pm unless you are in it drinking!

Next Quiz will be on the 16th Feb 2020

Winter is a great time to visit Eskdale, the valley is quiet, and the fells have a remote feel which is hard to find outside Scotland. The Lake District splendor is all around, from the ever changing autumn leaves, to the often snow capped Scafell range reflected in Wastwater, which is only a short drive or couple of hours walk away.

To help you enjoy your time here we have:-

25 Gins

180 Malt Whiskies

Up to 10 real ales in summer, 3 or more winter

Food served all day, hot drinks, including great coffee, hot chocolate and mulled wine


Brook House Inn, owned and run by the Thornley Family since the last century, offers you the opportunity to stay in hotel style bedrooms with ensuite baths in all rooms whilst having the convenience of a real Lake District pub with real ales and a fantastic malt whisky collection. Friendly staff with local knowledge help make your stay just right. Oh and did I mention the 180 whiskies to try? It will take a few visits to Eskdale to sample them all!

Our imaginative menu, including vegetarian options and scrumptious puddings, is complemented by blackboard specials and a varied wine list. Delicious home-made food is available all day. Dining in our restaurant, bar or snug is always a pleasure.

We serve real ales, treated on their journey from barrel to bar with tender loving care. These include Cumbria Legendary Ales Langdale, Hawkshead Windermere Pale and a range of guest beers from Local Brewers such as Fell, Barngates and Foxfield. We also have beers from many others brewers around the Country such as semi local Crossbay at Morecambe and Small World over in Yorkshire. Brook House Inn is one of the 3 hosts of the Boot Beer Festival, Boot Beer Festival is held in June every year and is one of the biggest beer festivals in the Lake District
