Located in the centre of the village offering food and accommodation as well as drinking facilities this place is handy and gets very busy.

Same menu in the bistro as the pub. We preferred the bistro, which has a relaxed, family feel to it. Lots of home-made options - both hearty and healthy. Really enjoyed the home made meat pie.

Went to the Yewdale Hotel for breakfast on Sunday 26th July 2015 after running the Lakeland 50 event the previous day. Four of us met up and ended up sharing a table, but ordering separately. The food, when it came, was superb; an excellent breakfast, good coffee, and hugely recommended - on its own, worth five stars, along with a... More

Sorry about the mix-up with one of your breakfasts. I don't think it deserves 5 paragraphs on TA or a 2 star rating considering the food was so delicious. More

Went for an evening meal approx 630 pm at this place with friends. 24th July 2015 3 couples including my husband and I, plus a lady. we all sat at the same table.

Threatening behaviour towards a Publican in a Licensed Premises constitute a criminal offence and I was moments away from calling the police. Your behaviour was unacceptable and probably alcohol-fuelled when I told you in a measured fashion you would need to wait 45 minutes for your food order on a busy Saturday night at the start of the school holidays....

Stopped here for a what was perceived as homemade cream tea. Scone was soft/ soggy, jam and clotted cream were served in packets and not enough was gived and i ordered a cappuccino with my drink to be told that was not able to be requested. Instead i had luke warm black coffee which came with one sugar and abit... More

Really sorry you didn't enjoy your 'Cream Tea'. It should have been explained that if you pay separately for a Scone/Cream and a Cappuccino, you could have had exactly what you wanted with only a few pence extra to pay. We have been serving the same scones from a local bakery for years and this is the first complaint which... More

I just don't understand why this place is getting bad reviews. I entered the trendy-looking 'Y' Cafe in mid-July. The Cafe itself was very clean, with two people serving, a young male that was very friendly and might I add made a killer Latte, who seemed more than confident despite his age to deal with a very busy cafe, and...

Many thanks for your review. We have a great team and they all try really hard to provide excellent service. I'm afraid that the odd slip-up always results in a crushing review on TA but we feed thousands of customers a week this time of year and pleased to say that 99% of them go away satisfied and return another...

this was our first meal of the week in Coniston and was the worst unfortunately. For the prices charged, it does not compare with several other places like the steam bistro or the Wilson arms. I ordered steak pie and mash. The Pie was ok, bit the mash can only be described as the colour of wallpaper paste and the... More

Customers return time and again for our Legendary Steak and Old Peculier Ale Pie, so we are sorry it didn't match up to your expectations on this occasion - or at the mash potato. The other establishments you mention are in a different price bracket but we are often favourably compared to both for value. Our mash potato is freshly... More

Lovely clean cafe attached to the hotel. Friendly staff. Everything looked good when we stopped off for a lunch break. 30 minutes after ordering the burger and salad option a sad apology for a meal arrived in what looked like a plastic peg basket, complete with a slowly dissolving paper container of tomato ketchup, limp frozen chips, a rubbery burger...

Thousands of these burgers are enjoyed by our customers each year without any complaint. (See review below yours entitled 'Best Chicken Fillet Burger in the World').

Ate at the Yewdale on a couple of occasions, the food was great, the portions were large and great value. The pub had a great atmosphere both inside and out, with great service. Well worth a visit if you are in Coniston.
