We stayed 5 days in August and from the start Kat, Craig, Lily and the team couldn't have been more welcoming. This is a lovely traditional English pub with fine ales and amazing food. Situated between Ambleside and Hawkshead its a perfect piece of isolation to explore the hills around. The breakfasts are hot and tasty with the best sausages... More

Really yummy food and good sized portions. The staff were friendly and our food was brought out on time. Parking was free and there was also wifi. Certainly going back here again! A good selection of local beers were available, I would recommend this to everyone! Pets are allowed which is good for those with dogs.

Visited The Outgate Inn in Outgate with a group of friends for an evening meal on a Friday evening. Service and food were both great and very reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend and return if we were in the area again. Good range of Ales and other drinks.

Called in for late lunch after long walk over Coniston Old Man. Friendly welcome and good pint of Guiness. All three of us ordered chilli beef burger and chips and we were all blown away by how good it was. Will definitely go back

Had a lovely lunch here! The chips are really good and the burger I had was awesome. Staff were super friendly and managed amazingly well especially considering there was 14 of us! I will return when I am next down this way!

We stopped by for lunch as we were travelling around the lake district and were so pleased we did. Two of our family opted to try the pheasant burger and 2 of us being less hungry had the soup of the day. The pheasant burger was a welcome change from the norm and was absolutely delicious. The soup of the... More

Whilst traveling around the Lake District we popped in for a snack for lunch. The Ploughman's Lunch was excellent as was the beer selection to wash it down with. Couple this with a wonderful landlord I have to say this little pub is special. We returned that night with a group of friends and experienced more fine service and a... More

Visited with friends over the weekend during a camping trip. Very friendly staff and good, tasty food. Two of us had the steak pie which was excellent and accompanied with great chips and two veg. The turnip/carrot mash was beautiful. A little more veg or an additional serving would have been great as us hikers have big appetites 😆. Good... More

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
