    You won't find a better pint than at the General Burgoyne. We welcome you to take advantage of our well kept beer and fresh, home cooked pub food. Our real fire is a real draw, whether toasting your toes in colder months, or drying out after Lakeland showers. Walkers and cyclists enjoy the pub and often use the pub car park as a start/finish point for their days out. We can provide games and crayons and (whispers) free WiFi to keep your young ones quietly entertained and are dog friendly. We have two large TV screens showing both Sky Sports and BT Sports, a major feat for any a small village pub like ourselves. One of these is placed in our brand new sports room, which is secluded upstairs. Here we have a pool table and darts board as well as tables, sofas and of course the large TV with live sports. Why not take a peek at the skull in the cupboard!? Found in the ground during renovations in 1995, it is uncertain exactly to whom this skull belonged!
