This is an absolutely superbly friendly traditional pub in Shap village. Really nice home cooked food with plenty of choice, nice local ale in a really friendly atmosphere. A very good alternative to microwaved mass produced food. I highly recommend the Crown Inn, a real gem of a pub to visit when you are in and around Shap. Only 5 minutes off the M6.

Me and my friends Graham and Russell stayed here for a night when we were walking the coast to coast walk in the late 1980's. An Oasis after a long days walking carrying a heavy rucksack. After a hot shower and a few pints and good night's sleep we were ready for another day on the trail. Highly recommended for accommodation and of course the beer/ lager.

I absolutely loved this pub/campsite with its friendly staff and loyal regulars! Not ever going to drive past Shap again without popping in here! Very tasty breakfast.
