Make yourself at home with the Tweedies Family.
Gillian and Brian Roberts have been the proud family owners of Tweedies Bar and Lodge since 2005, priding themselves in creating a home-from-home experience for you to enjoy in the English Lakes District.
You’ll also get the chance to meet their sons Alex, James and Jack.
Alex’s passion for the pint is unrivalled in the Lakes, well so they say! Alex is in charge of the bar ensuring there are plentiful beers, ales and perries available for you to try.
James leads the kitchen preparing fresh, locally sourced, exciting culinary delights and some familiar home comforts too.
Dancing in the daffodils with the two youngest members Etta and Phoebe is not compulsory but will most certainly place a spring in your step.
"This is a true family business, all of our guests come here to relax and make themselves at home"

Meet Mr Mickey Moscrop aka ‘Tweedie’
Tweedie was a legend amongst the Lakeland folk for his wit, baritone voice, poetic words and high-quality Tweed goods.
Born in Hoddam, Dumfriesshire, Scotland in 1897, Mickey was an accomplished athlete and a distinguished member in the British Army before settling as a travelling tweed merchant with his newly-found passion for his native woollen cloth.
Every summer between 1922 until 1976, Mickey would travel to Grasmere, bringing together the community to sell his tweeds whilst resting with a pint. He was an institution, living life to the full and gave enormous pleasure to all who were privileged to know him.
His woollen cloth is no longer for sale here, but the legend certainly still lives on. You will find pockets of tweed sewn throughout our Bar & Lodge in honour of Mr Mickey Moscrop!
