It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to close at 2pm on Christmas Eve, not re-opening again until the country is in a better place, I don't mean like the tropics! Just with Covid under control, the tiers gone, restrictions on the drinking classes lifted etc. We are not here to police where you are from, how much you eat and drink or even decide if you should travel. We are here to make you happy, enjoy your evening out or holiday in the hills.
Stay safe and have the best festive season you can.
Our booking system is open for next year, so please get your next break booked in. We will not be taking deposits at this time, but the system will want credit card details to secure the booking. We sincerely hope things in the UK will have improved by March if not before.
It is a mad world!
If you would like to book rooms please book direct not via booking agencies, we will not take a deposit at this time and will be flexible with date changes if required.
We are working hard to make sure we can stay open safely for you and our staff.Please visit our Covid policy page.
We have a Takeaway menu if you are coming to stay in a cottage nearby and are not quite ready to face eating out, this menu will be subject to change.
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 Loweswater Gold, Ennerdale Blonde and a range of guest beers from Local Brewers such as Fell and Barngates We also have beers from many others brewers around the Country such as semi local Crossbay at Morecambe and Small World and Rudgates over in Yorkshire. We have a great choice of Lilleys Ciders and a shed load of gins to choose from.
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
