The Langstrath Country Inn, Stonethwaite

Another story about the old management. A few years back, on our wedding anniversary, my wife and I took our young daughters on a walk over Rosthwaite Fell and Glaramara. Tired and muddy after a bit of an 'epic' we returned to Stonethwaite as dusk fell, keeping our spirits up by talking about the beers and crisps that awaited us.
When we arrived at the inn the landlord 'appeared'- almost as if he had been waiting for us. Looking at us suspicially - obviously thinking we were camping at the local site - he informed us that we couldn't use the toilets or use the sinks for washing. When we said we had come for refreshments after a long walk, he said that he couldn't let us in the bar with the kids as they could only be allowed in if we had a meal. Fine, we replied, we had been thinking about having dinner as well. Sorry, he said, you're just too late; last orders for dinner was 5 minutes ago.
I hope he has found anther pub to run, we can't afford to lose men like him..

The Harp, Covent Garden

This jewel joins the Square and Compass in Worth Matravers and The Bridge Hotel of Buttermere in my Holy Triumvirate. Pray that it stays exactly the same- especially the toilet- cos places like this are magic.
