Whether a visitor to the beautiful Western Lakes and coastline, a discerning business traveller to Sellafield, or simply looking for high quality food and drink at reasonable prices, then the White Mare Hotel and Restaurant in Cumbria has everything you are looking for.
Named the Best Pub in Cumbria in the 2016 National Pub and Bar Awards and Best Newcomer in Britain in the Great British Pub Awards, The White Mare is fast becoming one of the most popular hospitality venues in the area. We have also been awarded with two Certificates of Excellence from TripAdvisor and a Guest Review Award from Booking.com.
Relax and enjoy the warm, friendly atmosphere and peaceful surroundings of our fully refurbished traditional Coaching Inn, nestled between the two small becks that run through our delightful village.
Re-opened in May 2015, after a £400,000 make-over that saw the entirety of the White Mare being stripped back to the bare walls and fully re-floored, we now offer bar and restaurant menus on a daily basis, a well stocked bar and Executive level en-suite accommodation, all in fully redecorated and refurnished interiors.
The restaurant area has a new fireplace and there is now a viewing hatch to the kitchen from the lounge which retains its beamed ceiling and open fire. The bar itself has been renewed and glass panelled doors have been installed leading out to a new external covered seating area. The bar has another fully functioning open fire and viewing access to the cellar. There are two Sky TV channels showing in the bar, covering all major sporting events.
A dividing screen in the restaurant area provides private conferencing facilities, fully equipped with projector and screen and the full room can be hired for functions of up to 50 people.
Our spacious Executive level bedrooms have been fitted with brand new bathroom suites and come with all the luxuries that you would expect. There is free Wi-fi Internet access for all our guests.
We are ideally located less than two miles from the Sellafield site and only 10 miles from Wastwater, arguably the Lake District’s most tranquil setting, and 9 miles from the Georgian harbour town of Whitehaven.
Our objective at the White Mare is to make you feel at home and provide you with hospitality the way it should be.
So call us today if you are looking for accommodation near Sellafield or the western Lake District, bar meals or high quality restaurant cuisine in the hidden gem of West Cumbria.
