Dined in this pub which adjoins the Red Lion Hotel, for both nights of our short stay. We had venison one night and lamb the next. Both were very tasty and reasonably priced. The pub had a few tables outside which was great to sit with a drink and watch people go by. Is it just me or is the... More

It's a pub...it's pub food so it's cheap (for the area) we all had the giant Yorkshire puds with roast dinner and it was lovely but the seating area lacked any character and it felt like a chain hotel area not uniqueness or homely feel.... Staff were barely interested .... Disappointing... Go elsewhere there are better places to eat and... More

This was our first visit to Grasmere and after looking around at menus outside the restaurants we were so pleased to find one that did pizzas. We were told we could not book which we wanted to do with it being Saturday night and my birthday but the staff were very polite and explained that if we could not get... More

We visited this pub last night for a relaxed meal. I chose the burger and my husband had the gammon and chips. I'm not sure if there was much meat content in my rubbery beef burger but at least it was hot. The same can't be said for the onion rings and chips on my plate which were both tepid... More

Our dinner at this 'typically English pub' was the worst food and service we have ever experienced! Most pubs these days can be relied on to serve excellent meals - not at the Lamb Inn! Although we only ordered haddock & chips and chicken & chips, we had to wait for well over an hour for the food to arrive.... More

There is a need for good honest pub food in Grasmere at reasonable prices - not all travellers are able to afford the more expensive restaurants nor necessarily want a more elaborate 'fancy' menu after a day on the hills. . The food is excellent with good portions, well presented and at a reasonable price. The Lamb Inn has got... More

We went in here a couple of nights, the first time for a drink and the next night for a meal. They have some fantastic ales on and the food is great. The prices are brilliant for the area too! I had a grilled chicken burger and my wife had the BBQ burger. Both were very tasty and the service... More
