About Us

The White Mare, is run by Dianne and Iain Irving and our family since we took over the Inn in 2015. We are ably assisted by a dynamic team of local people who are dedicated to delivering the best in hospitality standards. The White Mare is also the hub of community life in our village as well as fast becoming one of the most popular dining destinations in West Cumbria.

Everything about the White Mare is personal….Our menu offers a range of contemporary dishes along with traditional pub favourites and is very reasonably priced. We can also cater for high end corporate dining and events.

Wherever possible our food dishes are homemade using local Cumbrian produce and we often hold specials nights such as a full fish menu and Beer and Food Pairing. We also offer an extensive wine list, with something to suit every taste.

We offer private conferencing facilities, fully equipped with projector and screen and the room can be hired for functions of up to 60 people. We are becoming a popular choice for weddings and parties.

Our spacious Executive level bedrooms, with attractive furnishings, have been re-fitted with new bathroom suites and come with all the luxuries that you would expect, bringing a much sought after level of accommodation in West Cumbria. There is free Wi-fi Internet access for all our guests.

We also offer regular entertainment, from local acts to our popular vinyl nights, where customers play their old records on our state of the art decks.

Our objective at the White Mare is to make our customers feel at home and provide them with hospitality – the way it should be.
