Food,service and location just perfect!

A great night out at the pub enhanced by good beer, food and good company. It was my birthday and to meet friends there as a half way house from our home in Underbarrow was just perfect.

We visited the Strickland Arms on the way to visiting Sizergh castle that same day. An excellant local pub! The pub was very busy at the time we visited and I would advice to prebook. We were able to sit outside and eat which was perfect as it was a lovely day. At the time I found the staff very... More

I write this review in the main as genuine feedback to management. A couple of years ago the Strickland Arms was always my local myself and the family would eat here 2 or three times a month. The bar was always buzzing, the staff enthusiastic and always keen to accommodate. Over the past couple of years what a difference, the... More

We went to visit Seizure Castle on 21/6/15 for a day out and thought that Strickland Arms looked like a lovely place to stop for a bite to eat, how wrong could we be. Firstly we were bustled upstairs as we had not booked, not a big deal but that were we were then forgotten about along with other people... More

This is one of our local eateries and have always had a good meal and used as a location to take friends and family. My wife has been twice within a week .First time with a friend and both had steak sandwiches which were tough. We went as a family of three yesterday for late lunch and again ordered two... More

Good food. Actually excellent food. Unfortunately we found the staff uninterested, perhaps it's because we're not local or we just happened to call on a bad evening. Normally we would return as the food was so nice but as we were made to feel in the way, sorry no 2nd chance here.

We had Sunday lunch and the food was very good, we ate late in the afternoon and they had sold out of the majority of the Sunday lunch menu main courses, so I recommend an earlier seating to avoid disappointment. Let down slightly by a slow inattentive service staff. This is nice traditional venue with a warm welcome.

Went here on the Friday night before Lake Windemere swim. Friend booked us all in (6 adults and 6 children under 4!) for 18:00 (that was the earliest they serve evening food) and pub was very welcoming. We sat in the beer garden for drinks after ordering food. Staff came and got us when starters were ready (along with the... More

This is a beautiful pub in a lovely location; a good place to stop off if you are on your way to the Lakes. The kitchen does not appear to open before 6, but it is always fully booked- make sure you book ahead. My four year old had a little fish pie, my wife had the steak and ale... More

We stopped going to the Strickland Arms about 18 months ago because for some reason the quality of the food and the service became very poor! We have been twice in the last month and I have to say it is back to how it used to be. Fantastic tasty food. Good friendly service and tasty traditional ale. A proper... More
