we had left it late to go out but we were hungry so we left our hotel to try elsewhere. It was about 7.30pm. Not too busy in Grasmere but enough folk to cause waiting time issues? Got to The Red Lion & found a decent menu for my very fussy non fish eating partner who also doesn't like many... More

We were in Grassmere for two nights and decided to have our main meal here on both occasions. The pub is very clean and cosy. The food was very tasty and filling with lots of choice. We also found the prices to be very reasonable The gentleman serving us was very helpful, giving us advice on the local lakes tours.

We went twice to The Lamb and almost walked out the first time as we waited over half an hour for our food. However when it came it was delicious, especially the vegetable curry which was superb. We went back the following evening and the service was much quicker and the food very good. A nice atmosphere and dogs made... More

We enjoyed two meals at the Lamb Inn recently. The food both times was excellent. Highly recommend the Yorkshire pudding and the steak and ale pie!

After a disappointing visit to the competing Tweedies Bar we discovered The Lamb Inn which is a far better option. We all enjoyed our meals which were fairly priced.
