We ate here on two nights last week. It was always busy but in both cases we had no trouble booking a table by phoning earlier in the day (Monday and Friday). The food is a cut above normal pub grub at a reasonable price. We did find the food quite rich, and the portions were large - great after... More

Every year we visit a number of pubs/inns/restaurants on our holiday in the Lakes. From previous years we know that the Kirkstile Inn is at least one of the best. Before we travelled we tried to book a table for the Saturday and failed, the Sunday and failed and was successful for the Monday. The food, drink and service was... More

We've been coming here off and on for 40 years and it is always on our list of places to visit in the Lake District. Good atmosphere and excellent pub food. The Loweswater Gold bitter is very fine too.

One of the most ideal locations for a pub, an old Lakeland pub very old no fuss but excellent food, and good local beers.

A group of us went for lunch, and arrived just after the rush for tables, which meant there was nowhere to fit the 10 of us together. Although the staff were rushed off their feet because the place was so busy, they managed to reorganise tables to squeeze us in. The service and suggestions about options, especially for the young...

Nice lunch & dog friendly at lunch time, although the bar area was dowdy. The food was good a little pricey, but only what you would expect in the Lakes. Staff friendly

I'm afraid I can't tell you about the food, drink, etc because we were turned away! My friend and colleague and I drove our vans into the car park at approximately 10.30 am as we were supporting our other colleagues in their C2C charity cycle ride to raise money for less advantaged children (this was emblazened across one of our...
