Just spent two wonderful days and nights at the outgate inn, Outgate. The landlord and landlady Nigel and Julie could not be nicer or any more attentive. The chef is fantastic and produces quality food with a varied menu and exciting specials board. all at reasonable prices. The range of beers and spirits is impressive and all reasonably priced, hence... More

Desperately trying to get to Beatrix Potter's Hill Top House we came upon this little gem en route. If you expect bright and modern this isn't for you. The decor is old but everything appeared clean. Pets and muddy boots welcome apparently. My daughter and I sat and were given menus. There was no enthusiasm from her as she is... More

Thanks very much for a lovely meal last night. Ten hungry folks in our party including three weary little ones ! What we really wanted to say was a big Thankyou to the chef for sorting the little ones with their kids meals as quick as he could - that was much appreciated and the food went down a storm!... More

Went there twice this week for dinner and was really taken aback by the place. Fantastic home cooked food, great quality, good portion sizes very good prices and many meals can be made gluten free as well. The staff were friendly and attentive - We will be back again for sure!

Quiet country inn with a good pub menu and a particular thought for those needing gluten free dishes. We stopped for Sunday roast and even that was well catered for, with generous portions of very well cooked food. A decent meal, excellent and friendly service and a good local pint too. Worthy of a food stop for anyone but if... More

My husband and I have just returned from a great 3 day deal at the Outgate Inn via WoWcher. The Inn is very scenic with a lovely atmosphere. Our room although small, was perfectly adequate and had a good sized ensuite. Although our room overlooked the main road, noise was not an issue. There is a beer garden at the... More

Unfortunately this is not a good review - we were staying at the local Low Wray Camp Site last week and we decided to walk to the Outgate Inn for dinner last Wednesday night. After walking for an hour (after we took a wrong footpath) we arrived at the pub at 8.32pm wanting food for 7 people where we were... More

The amount of bad review's I've had from people walking from low ray campsite is number one on my bad hit's. There's a big notice at the campsite saying ring first before setting of from campsite to our pub to make sure we're still serving or we can fit you in. We serve food all day because we don't get...

Stayed here for 1 night on 13th June with my partner. The location is very nice, peaceful and relaxing. The historical building itself has lots of character and charm. It is about a 20 minute walk into Hawkshead either across the fields or by following the road. The room itself was nice and was adequate for the night. The room... More
