Pub and Restaurant
The George and Dragon is an 18th century coaching inn. It has been lovingly restored by local craftsmen who have reused stone, slate flags, design and colours sympathetic to the Georgian period.
Comfy sofas, bare wooden tables and intimate alcoves make it a perfect place to relax and unwind. Photographs, paintings, old prints and archive images tell stories of the Lowther Estate’s unique heritage. And over time, more stories will be added.
When you visit the George and Dragon in Cumbria, you can enjoy a pint of local ale, relax with a glass of fine wine and indulge in the Lowther produce, feeling that you’re somewhere rather unique.
Courtyard and garden
Chunky, weathered tables sit against the front of the building and local limestone, granite and sandstone have been used to create a high-walled enclosed courtyard (a perfect sun trap) which then leads into a garden.
Families, bikes, walking boots and dogs
Families are very welcome, as are cyclists and walkers. We have a secure place to store bikes overnight. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar area (but not the restaurant).
If you’re on business or need to keep in touch, we have free Wifi available throughout the building.
