During our stay in Coniston we visited for dinner and unfortunately we were disappointed with our experience. The staff were friendly and pleasant but the food was not great. The rib eye steak was chewy and would have benefited with being served with a sauce, the onion rings and chips were clearly cooked from frozen, we thought that they would... More

Came to Coniston for a nice weekend getaway and stumbled upon the Yewdale Cafe, it's a lovely clean environment and the staff made us feel so welcome, especially nice considering we had been trekking around for a bit. We ordered two burgers and a couple of drinks. The food came out piping hot and the burgers were truly the most... More

Nice place, only called in for a pint but was made to fel welcome. The staff were helpful and pleasant. No Sky Sports which is a bit of a bummer but Hey Ho, we found football on in the Crown Inn

Nice of you to call in and glad you enjoyed your pint. Next time, it might be better to ascertain the location of the only pub in the village with Sky Sports before posting a restaurant review on our establishment when you didn't even sample our food. We are specifically NOT a football pub and have no plans to change.... More

During mine and my wife's international tour, we visited this jewel of a café in the heart of the British Lakes. The setting was beautiful, although very very rainy! We entered a seemingly deserted café in an out-of-season deserted Coniston. The young man behind the counter was working by himself and welcomed us warmly, took our wet coats for us,... More

Good on a curry night.. Very dog friendly. A bit quieter than most of the other pubs, but staff were lovely.
