Welcome to The White Mare Hotel – Pub restaurant and rooms in West Cumbria
White Mare Hotel, pub, restaurant, and rooms in West Cumbria. Whether a visitor to the beautiful Western Lakes and coastline, a discerning business traveller to Sellafield, or simply looking for high quality food and drink at reasonable prices, then the White Mare Hotel and Restaurant in Cumbria has everything you are looking for.
Named the Best Pub in Cumbria in the 2016 National Pub and Bar Awards and Best Newcomer in Britain in the Great British Pub Awards, The White Mare is fast becoming one of the most popular hospitality venues in the area. We have also been awarded with two Certificates of Excellence from TripAdvisor and a Guest Review Award from Booking.com.
Relax and enjoy the warm, friendly atmosphere and peaceful surroundings of our fully refurbished traditional Coaching Inn, nestled between the two small becks that run through our delightful village.
Re-opened in May 2015, after a £400,000 make-over that saw the entirety of the White Mare being stripped back to the bare walls and fully re-floored, we now offer bar and restaurant menus on a daily basis, a well stocked bar and Executive level en-suite accommodation, all in fully redecorated and refurbished interiors.
The White Mare is run by Dianne and Iain Irving and our family since we took over the Inn in 2015. We are ably assisted by a dynamic team of local people who are dedicated to delivering the best in hospitality standards. The White Mare is also the hub of community life in our village as well as fast becoming one of the most popular dining destinations in West Cumbria.
Everything about the White Mare is personal….Our menu offers a range of contemporary dishes along with traditional pub favourites and is very reasonably priced. We can also cater for high end corporate dining and events.
Wherever possible our food dishes are homemade using local Cumbrian produce and we often hold specials nights such as a full fish menu and Beer and Food Pairing. We also offer an extensive wine list, with something to suit every taste.
We offer private conferencing facilities, fully equipped with a projector and screen and the room can be hired for functions of up to 60 people. We are becoming a popular choice for weddings and parties.
Our spacious Executive level bedrooms, with attractive furnishings, have been re-fitted with new bathroom suites and come with all the luxuries that you would expect, bringing a much sought after level of accommodation in West Cumbria. There is free Wi-fi Internet access for all our guests.
We also offer regular entertainment, from local acts to our popular vinyl nights, where customers play their old records on our state of the art decks.
