Scafell Hotel

Pub Food in Borrowdale

A slate roof and black-and-white walls make this inn look classic, and so it proves: its Riverside Bar is an old hikers' haunt with dishes such as trout, gammon steak and Cumberland sausage with creamy mash designed to 'Fill Yer Boots'. Its rooms are comfy enough, but unjustifiably expensive in high season (doubles £180 to £240).
