Lovely food in a pleasant setting with friendly and efficient hosts. Best of the three pubs in Braithwaite but recommend booking at busy times. We ate on a Sunday evening and weren't rushed at all but they did double covers on most tables.

We've been wanting to eat here for ages and we went on Sunday arriving about 1.30pm. The menu had excellent choices of food which is sourced locally, and the bar always has a good selection of real ales and ciders, having won many Camra awards over the years. For starters I had a plate of Cumbria meats,cheese,chutney with 2 hot... More

To visit a pub at lunchtime with two small children can be a bit hit or miss but the food was delicious and the service was fantastic! My girls loved playing on the grass outside and we all really enjoyed the food. The steak pie was great and the gammon portion was only just manageable!!

We received a warm welcome and had a table in a lovely conservatory dining room. Throughout the evening the service was friendly and attentive. The menu was well balanced, traditional and reasonably priced. Our main courses of slow roasted local lamb and steak and ale pie were delicious and huge. In contrast, our starters of smoked salmon and prawns were... More

As we live locally, I cannot comment on the accommodation, but, not for the first time, we visited with friends, for an evening meal. The place was very busy with the usual mix of residents and locals and we ate in the conservatory, which is light, airy and delightful, particularly on a fine Summer evening with its views across to...

Our annual pilgrimage with friends was, as usual excellent . The room was clean and comfortable , food of high quality and staff friendly and accommodating . A good choice of beers , if you like real ale , and comfortable lounge to sit and relax in the evening . Already booked for 2016 .

My husband and I stayed for two nights, this bank holiday weekend. From the moment we arrived, the staff could not do enough for us to make our stay and experience an excellent one. This is a bustling inn & restaurant that serves superb cuisine I can understand why it is so popular with residents and locals alike. We ate... More

We visited this lovely establishment for food and found both people and dogs get a warm welcome. The staff are very friendly and give the canine customers a bit of a fuss when they come in. Dogs are allowed to stay overnight with their owners and are welcome in the restaurant with them in the evening. The food was superb-... More

A great location and an very well run kitchen and bar. Great opportunity to sample English ales brewed in Cumbria with at least 3 an draft and a dozen bottles providing an excellent selection of local breweries. Both breakfast and evening menus were varied and offered a good selection of vegetarian meals.

A group of nine friends, we spent a lovely weekend in Middle Ruddings. It is a bustling inn & restaurant downstairs and a warm, comfortable guest house upstairs. In the restaurant, the menu is varied and the portions are generous. We hope to be able to book again for our annual Lakes weekend. Thank you
