The Gilpin Bridge Inn
Nestling in the gateway to the lakes and on the edge of the National Park lies Gilpin Bridge Inn, full of character and steeped in history.
The name of this humble establishment was acquired from Richard de Gylpin, a Norman Knight who lived here after fighting the crusades and upon whose arrival found the local populate to be menaced by a distinctly unsavory boar. The wild and savage beast had done away with numerous victims before disappearing into the dense neck of the woodland back to its secret lair.
The Inn today
Nowadays the locals are a lot friendlier and are able to enjoy the hospitality of the inn, which offers an extensive menu and daily specials served in the lounge or restaurant along with a good selection of wines by the bottle or glass, cask ales and a large choice of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Ideally situated just off the A590 between Kendal and Newby Bridge and just a few miles from the M6 motorway.
