We walked to the Outgate Inn from Low Wray campsite, where we'd spent most of the day in our tent sheltering from the rain. But we needed to get out, and we didn't have any food in, so we waterproofed up and got on with it. It was actually a pleasant walk, if a bit soggy, and when we got... More

We had popped in for a sandwich after a tree climb morning we were exhausted and just wanted some food. What we got was lovely friendly service (a nothing too much trouble attitude) we opted for sandwiches with soup and some chips so nothing challenging but what we got was just about the nicest possible simple food. So nice when... More

Just popped in for a quick drink and a look at the menu - good choice for a bar lunch. Lovely black pudding in batter (no, nothing like that horrible stuff with white bits in, sold in polystyrene trays in supermarkets) and a very good fish finger sandwich. Nice glass of Prosecco from a good wine list. Very pleasant and... More

We had a long weekend here and it was great. Our room was good and the breakfast, bar food and the beer was all very good. Pub had a nice atmosphere and was in such a beautiful place with Hawkshead just down the road where you can hop on a bus to the lakes. We would happily stay here again.

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.
