Despite the pub being busy the staff kindly fitted the two of us, our baby and our dog in. Great drinks selection, draft Estrella excellent and quite rare with good wine... read more

After visiting the Escort Owners club at the nearby Heaves Hall, we tried to get a campsite nearby. Luckily, the owners let us park our campervan in the car park over night. What an advantage that was as the range of beers & the extensive menu was second to none. I chose smoked mackerel pate, hubby black pudding to start... More

we had a lovely meal here for our 39th wedding anniversary. The food was excellent and the staff who served us were very polite. We called in the following day just for a drink and unfortunately the man behind the bar I think his name was graham decided to ignore us to serve a gentleman who he seemed to know... More

I found this place by chance on route to my hotel. Beautiful rustic decoration with a fantastic feel to the place. Good local beer and a fine and reasonably priced menu for an excellent standard of food. The service was excellent. Only downside was that I was only staying one night in Kendal!

We went to the Strickland on Saturday 16 May. We were told upon arrival that the restaurant was fully booked,but Graham the Manager informed us that when a table became available in the bar area we were welcome to eat there. Graham soon had us a table, and got us some drinks sorted out . We waited half an hour... More

Stopped for lunch on the way to Sizergh Castle. Roomy traditional bar but for an establishment like this a poor selection of draught beers. The server had to ask what bitter they had as she "didn't know about beer"! In fairness the guy she asked certainly did. Food was good and the chips excellent.

Went for lunch today, had the sandwich and chips option, sandwiches were freshly made and HUGE!, the chips were hot and crispy, wasn't going to have a dessert till the people on the table next to us did, it looked too good to pass up. As a sticky toffee pudding snob I am often disappointed with what is called sticky... More
