Together with three others, I visited in late May. Staff were friendly and we booked for an evening meal. We chose our meals from a blackboard listing specials. They arrived promptly, but we had to return one meal to the kitchen as it did not agree with what was shown on the board, and contained ingredients which were not suited... More

We called for a pint during our weekend in Penrith but were disappointed when we went inside. It is fairly run down and could do with a spring clean. There is lots of potential here but it felt worn and faded. The menus had stickers all over them showing changed prices and looked unprofessional.

Came off the M6 into Penrith on a drive North in order to find somewhere for lunch, rather than eating at a motorway service station. Driving through Penrith we spotted this place adjacent to a Morrison's supermarket. There is parking immediately in front of the hotel, but if you miss it you could use Morrison's. It was a lovely day... More

Yesterday, April 1st 2015, we visited The Agricultural Hotel in Penrith for a late lunch. Having checked out the reviews which were mostly favourable, my first impression was that this was a lot smaller than it looked from the outside. The eating area was closed leaving only a very basic bar area open for use. We chose the steak and... More

Have eaten here before during a Saturday lunch so decided to bring all the full family for Mothers Day, the food was excellent and the portions were good and tasty. The staff were friendly and accommodating. It's like a country pub in the town. Will def be heading back soon.

Fantastic hotel, lovely food especially the breakfast. Gary was a brilliant host, our room 106 had privacy and was very clean. Really enjoyed our stay. The town had lots of pubs guided by our host Gary. Top notch. Cheers Martin, Heather, Mick and Pam.

Took mother and family for Sunday lunch. Had never been inside The Agricultural before; it's really friendly and welcoming. The food was good and value for money, staff were lovely. The portions are huge; but they do a small portion option as well. We would definitely go back again.
