DogPeople Says : The Mortal Man

Update June 2013: Lottie visited twice for meals with her people in June 2013. On the first occasion we had walked Wansfell including Wansfell Pike and were ready for a superb Sunday lunch of roast turkey and potatoes accompanied by Yorkshire Pudding, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy and six different vegetables. It was a such a generous portion we could not contemplate a pudding; great quality and value! Lottie enjoyed some of the complimentary dog biscuits and a quiet lay down after a hot and tiring walk. On the second occasion we called in for evening meals. We had a pork loin steak and huge fish and chips. This time the special desserts included syrup suet pudding with custard that just had to be tried ... exceptional (Mum would have been proud of it ... Grandma too!). There was a wide range of drinks on offer and we enjoyed cider, wines and a real ale (there were several but the first tried was so good we stuck to it). Lottie was delighted too - she was presented with her own 'Bonio' biscuit (as was the Labrador a few tables away)! Original entry: Tia stayed with her people and our directors in March 2010 (sadly Hamish was too old and frail to contemplate the mountains so he stayed at home with more of his people). We thoroughly tested the Mortal Man over a long weekend – complete with Lake District rain! We occupied adjacent well equipped, comfortable rooms, both with great views. We tried almost every possible combination of breakfasts, enjoyed three evening meals and widely sampled drinks at the bar. The people were thoroughly satisfied in every regard. Tia only expressed her opinion through a very waggy tail, a strong desire to meet the many other dogs in the bar and contentment near one of the open fires and water bowls in the bar after a hard day’s walking. Highlights included chicken goujons, Lamb Henry, pigeon served pink (on roast potato with risotto vegetables and cranberry sauce), breakfasts set up in the bar for Tia (and us!) and a great location. We walked to Ambleside via Wansfell Pike returning by Robin’s Lane (against the ‘traffic’ on this popular walk from Ambleside – when the benefit is the Mortal Man for lunch) and over High Street from Hartsop (up around The Knott and back via Pasture Bottom). More walks would be available from the door – weather and enough daylight permitting – we hope to get back… and have no hesitation in recommending the Mortal Man.
