quiet pub

very quiet for a Friday night,we did have a meal but it was pricey for a lamb shank, staff very polite , music did not do the place any favours it was more suited to a much younger persons scene and not to a Lakeland village .Drinks seemed to be reasonablypriced.

It was like stepping back into the 80s! The environment is dated and a little tacky. The 'atmosphere' is definitely not that of a good old Lakeland pub, more a roadside cafe.The local beer was awful. Having said that, the menu, although unimaginative, was 'traditional' and you knew what to expect and prices were reasonable. We'd have liked a decent... More

Excellent service, we sat in the conservatory which was very pleasant. Disappointed as no pinot grigio wine and I do not like any other wine so had a coke..........never know an establishment of that size to run out of 'my' wine !! Food was average but well presented, price was on par with the other restaurants in the village and... More

From my many previous stays in Grasmere, I’d remembered the Lamb as the one real pub in the village: somewhere that was always busy with a good local trade as well as catering for visitors. Unfortunately, things seem to have changed: and this feels less like a village pub and more like a standard high-street “drink and dine” bar. A... More

Spur of the moment decision to eat out and just fancied something quick. All five meals were satisfactory. Traditional pub grub - nice but not spectacular and what's more, for the price I wouldn't expect it to be. It was rammed full and we heard no one complain. There are much nicer and more expensive places to eat in Grasmere... More

We popped in here a couple of times whilst in Grasmere for food & drinks. It is typical pub food but it is reasonable both in price and quality. It has a a good pub area with plenty of seating and has a relaxed feel about it.

With it being a Tuesday night, the village seemed quiet. The Lamb Inn was fairly busy with everyone eating. I had a veggie lasagne and my partner had a filled yorkshire pudding. Unfortunately his beef was tough but staff sorted this issue out quickly and my food was tasty. Drinks were great and the atmosphere was nice.

We only ate here once during our recent stay in Grasmere, the menu was ok, the food pretty average and not the greatest value for money, however, having said that the service was quick despite it being a very busy evening, all in all its an ok pub with ok food, you could find better and worse places to eat...

After eating at a restaurant close by, we decided to pop in for a drink on the way back to our hotel. We entered to find only a single customer plus a couple of staff about to clock off. Not put off by the atmosphere at that point, we ordered drinks and were shocked to be charged £8.60 for a... More

We recently stayed in Grasmere and decided to have dinner at the Lamb Inn and were not disappointed. The restaurant is situated in the Best Western Hotel and you have a choice of two menus, 1 being a five course set menu and the other a seasonal menu. We chose the seasonal menu and were spoilt for choice but eventually... More
