Only ate here, did not stay. Basic pub grub; good portion sizes (the most enormous fish and chips I have ever seen), menu nothing spectacular but food well prepared and kids well catered for. Have board games to keep them busy whilst waiting for food to arrive. Well kept local beers. Waitresses prompt and friendly. Does get busy early-doors with... More

The Outgate was the closest pub to our cottage. Good pub grub at a reasonable price. They offer vegetarian options on the menu and their halloumi sandwich was quite tasty. There is ample parking across the lane from the pub and they welcome dogs which was very important for us. Great stop for lunch or a pint after walking. Friendly... More

Lovely evening sat outside with beautiful views of Hawkshead village. I shared a breaded camembert starter with my partner which was faultless, I had a steak and ale pie which was very tasty and plenty of meat, personally it could of done with more sides as it came with mash and carrots only but for some this may be ample....

Expecting standard pub grub upon entering this country pub, it was a surprise to bite into the crispiest of batters and juiciest of scampi within. Exactly the same with the chips; mouthwatering golden shells with crumbly potato at the centre. The Date had a similarly satisfying experience with a chilli con carne; pleasingly presented and just hit the spot. Staff... More

Popped into this place for a quick evening meal. Expected some of the usual pub grub, but was served some top notch, well cooked, fine food instead. The service was attentive and joyfull, this made for a good evenings relaxation and we certainly left feeling better than we expected. Will definately be back soon.

Have eaten here several times, including Saturday evenings and Sunday lunch. Always enjoyed our meal. Staff very friendly and dogs very welcome. Several of our favourite walks incorporate this pub! And no problem with muddy boots. Log fire a bonus as well.

Had a few meals here last year when the current landlord and landlady took over and were really impressed with the quality of the food and the warm welcome we received. Had Sunday lunch there last weekend, the first visit of the year, we weren't disappointed. It was just as welcoming and the food was excellent. The starters, roast dinner... More

One of the most welcoming pubs I've ever been to. Our 3 year old son preferred to sit with the owner rather than us! Ideal Location for walkers.Games on hand, great beer, good food. Go there! So good we went twice.

We arrived soaking wet from a torrential downpour - all welcomed warmly (including our wet, smelly dog!) by very friendly, prompt and efficient staff. Service was quick, food was excellent - the best pub food we've ever had. Lovely, warm atmosphere - felt immediately at home. Will certainly be back - can't recommend enough, especially to dog walkers! Thank you... More
