The Old Ginn House Inn is situated in the village of Great Clifton and is perfect for exploring the Lake District and Solway Coast.
This inn has been successfully converted from a 17th Century farm into a charming village inn. Built around an appealing courtyard and patio area, the inn has ample parking facilities both in the courtyard and at the rear. Family run, with quality en-suite accommodation and excellent food served in the unique ginn room bar and atmospheric dining areas, The Old Ginn House aims to ensure you have a most relaxing and enjoyable stay.
The main bar is the ginn room after which the inn has been named. This unique rounded room where, in bygone times, horses walked around turning the grindstone to crush the crops, known as ‘ginning’, offers a good selection of soft drinks, wines, spirits – including a variety of local gins, and local Cumbrian craft ales.
The dining areas exude a warm glow, and meals served include a hearty Cumbrian grill or continental breakfast. They are proud of their home-made food, and are keen to use quality local Cumbrian produce when possible. The enthusiastic chefs are prepared to cater for any special request if given 24 hours notice.
At lunchtime and in the evening they have an extensive menu and specials board that includes traditional home-cooked food as well as chef’s speciality dishes and a wide range of desserts. Their traditional Sunday lunch is always popular.
