Today, it was really busy; we were sat outside ( in the sun) and it was lovely. The staff were very friendly and accommodating with our dogs. The food seemed to be going down well as well & the beer too.

One of best meals we have ever had as a family. Staff were friendly and helpful and the pub interior is ornate and nice, as it is a former bank. The pizza was homemade and tasted as if stonebaked, lovely. The burgers were from local cows and were brilliant and the desserts and specials boards were worth a try. Would... More

Was in the lakes with family and decided to stop at the yew dale for lunch. Food was simple but excellent and service was friendly and quick. My teenage daughter came with us on a rare outing and said the bolognese pizza was the best she ever had, high praise from the budding food critic. All in all it's was... More

We ate in the bar. The portions were fine but food was distinctly average. Service was good and the barman very friendly.

I had the cheeseburger what a mistake , advertised as 100%beef I dont know how they managed to produce what I had from 100%beef. Either it was microwaved or deep fried from frozen either way unedible chewy sandal disgusting with lashings of mayo. Please chef how could you serve this to a customer and call yourself a chef . disgrace... More

This is a very disappointing review as we sell hundreds of burgers each week without a single complaint and all plates clean! Let me reassure you that all our meat is supplied fresh (definitely never frozen) daily from the Lakeland merchant who also supplies the best hotels and restaurants in the area. Your burger is indeed made from 100% local... More

Stayed at the hotel, there was absolutely nothing wrong with the room, couldn't fault it. We visited for the lakeland 50 and so accepted that breakfast was limited before 8:30am our first morning. We went down for breakfast the second morning just after 9am expecting more, we ordered poached eggs on toast and two coffees. firstly the service was extremely... More

Thanks for your feedback. The Lakeland 50/100 is the busiest weekend of the year for Coniston with several thousand people descending on the village. The morning you mention was particularly busy as the runners were returning along the main street outside our Café after their overnight run and other hotels and cafés in the village were not open for breakfast...

All we wanted was a light lunch choose some sandwiches, very good lovely bread and fillings, but while ordering was told not possible to have hot meals as the cooker was being replaced so there may have been some problems after we left

Thank you for your positive feedback about our sandwiches which we think are the best in Lakeland! My wife served you personally and explained that we had a technician in the kitchen carrying out an emergency repair to the oven. This is not a domestic oven but a piece of equipment as complex as a small family car! The reason... More

Ate in the cafe area on the Saturday evening, lovely food. Can definitely recommend the Eton mess! A much cooler area rather than sitting in the pub.
