Very poor Xmas lunch today. Reasonably priced and the setting was nice but the quality of food was poor and it was all served cold. I was very disappointed. The service was also very slow. Not the standard I would expect for the price. Would not recommend!

As a local in Barrow, I've visited The Hunting Lodge several times now. The food and service can be very good, or very poor - you just never know what you'll get on a particular day. So overall it's a disappointment because you can't rely on getting a good meal, served hot, or much attention from the staff, and I'm... More

Lovely welcome from the staff, liked the room colour and the mattress was comfortable. They are the only positives. Bed was sheets of which the top one had obviously not been washed as it smelled very strongly of men's aftershave. Choice of artwork was interesting, a naked lady eating an orange. Also choice of magazine available in the room was... More

I have been visiting the hunting lodge for years and have always enjoyed it. The service is always good, and you can relax inside on the vintage furniture or enjoy sitting outside in the large garden area with friends on a hot summers day. I am not overwhelmed by the food, some of it does not seem to be home... More

We visited with friends for Sunday lunch at the pub/restaurant part of the Hunting Lodge and although we had a bit of a mix up at the beginning with the time of our booking, we were accomodated in the big bar area of the restaurant which was actually really nice (the main restaurant was also a large space and totally...

Visited for an early eve Sunday meal. Great menu, plenty of choice, not too pretentious. Very good attentive service, knowledgeable staff and nothing too much to ask. We opted for chicken roulade and a braised beef. Both accompanied with potatoes and vegetables. For dessert, a traditional apple and rhubarb crumble with custard. All the food was freshly prepared. The veg... More

Can't believe people are saying the food is rubbish, what are you talking about!?! We went to eat on a Tuesday for the early bird menu (2 courses for £7.95, before 6.30pm). We were not expecting large portions for the price. However, we could not have been more pleased with the food. Absolutely delicious, tastes homemade. Generous portions for the... More

We stayed as part of the annual reunion, the food was terrible and I couldn't eat it. The room was fine and we slept quite well until woken very early by noisy heating, but the breakfast was also disappointing and not up to their usual standard. I also agree about the packed bar, unfortunately due to the bad weather, but... More

Attended our annual reunion on Saturday which was a fantastic event as always. As a venue this works really well when the weather is fine as the large beer garden allows everyone to spread out and circulate. However, on this occasion the weather was cold and showery which meant that the @300 guests were all packed into the bar area... More

Dear Martin, Thank you for you review. I can only apologies that you didn't receive the level of service you expected at The Hunting Lodge on the day of the Army Reunion. We do try our best to make sure all our guests leave happy and this occasion we have not. On the day in question we did have 6... More
