We called in on New Year's Day and asked if they were serving food, it was mid afternoon, and we were lucky enough to be informed that we had just managed to get the last order before they were due to set up for their New Years Eve dinner. I had the lamb and black pudding hot pot, and my... More

We booked a table here whilst on a short break in a nearby cottage. There were six of us in our party. The pub itself is very cozy with a lovely log fire. The proprietors and staff were welcoming and friendly. The menu is varied and there is a specials board. I had the Lamb and Black Pudding Hot Pot... More

We've been to Outgate Inn twice now; once for a romantic evening out (we arrived in freezing mist to a huge log fire – couldn't have been better) and once for a big family meal. On both occasions we were impressed with the friendliness of the owners (they are welcoming to dogs and kids) and the quality of the food... More

Had super lunch there this weekend and were made very welcome with our three dogs. So to sum up - lovely lunch, great atmosphere, friendly hosts, very dog friendly.... Couldn't fault it. Highly recommended....

We went to the Outgate Inn after doing a big climb up Scafell Pike. It wasn't the first time we had been some knew it was a good one to go to. I had steak and ale pie followed by chocolate brownie; my husband had braised lamb followed by sticky toffee pudding. We were both thoroughly pleased with our dinner-... More

We popped in for food at 3pm and unfortunately they had stopped serving meals until 5pm however they were still doing sandwiches. I had the most lovely prawn sandwich and the others had ham and cheese (with thick lovely ham) and we shared the most delicious homemade chips. Staff (owners I think, very friendly and helpful). A great find after... More

Brilliant two nights spend at the Outgate Inn having a relaxing weekend away with my partner. Delicious food and the portion sizes certainly didn't leave you wanting more- although I'd recommend saving space for the brownies! We enjoyed the evenings relaxing in the bar, and certainly appreciated the great selection of alcohol on offer. The room was clean and the... More

After a mornings walk I came for lunch at the Outgate. It has long had a fantastic reputation for great food/drink and service. In the past it also supported live Jazz Music. We had a great, good value lunch served promptly and with good humour. Sad to see the owners are moving on.. good luck to you as I have... More

Great location (very close to most lakes and viewpoints) even if, like us, you don't have a car and enjoy walking through the fields. The owners are amazing and they really made us feel at home the whole time - especially at night when we used to chill at the bar, before heading back to our MASSIVE bed. By the... More

Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from a fantastic weekend in the Lakes. It was a gift for us to stay at the Outgate Inn and we couldn't have been happier! It is a beautiful homely Bed and Breakfast and the hosts Nigel and Julie are great! The food is lovely with different specials each night and the room... More
