This restaurant is always really friendly and nothing is too much bother, they cater well for children and the elderly and dogs too. Lovely food, both set menu and a la carte and a wide choice of foods available. I've been several times both for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.

A party of 5 of us enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Strickland Arms last Sunday. It has a lovely cozy feel perfect for Christmas time. The service was friendly and we could not fault the food. The mini lamb and mashed potato starter was several mouthfulls of heaven, the best lamb I have tasted in a long time. In... More

We visited The Strickland Arms yesterday (21st December 2014) having enjoyed a rather muddy , and slightly damp walk in the area. As a family, (9 of us), we had gathered to celebrate my Brother-in-Law, Tony's 60th birthday. The welcome was lovely. A cosy, warm greeting from the moment we walkied through the door. My sister had booked a table... More

We had lunch at the Strickland Arms on the 6th December and we thought the food was excellent. My wife had the game terrine & roast turkey from the Christmas menu and was very impressed, particularly with the roasted vegetables. My main course of Monkfish was also delightful. Although the food could not be faulted, we found a couple of... More

We recently visited Levens for a weekend away and visited this pub on a recommendation from the b&b owner nearby. We were presently surprised at the quality of the food for a pub. We were only going to go for tea one night but went back for the second night as it was so good! I had the wild mushrooms... More

Have just had a really beautiful Christmas meal. Great choice- 3 courses (+ sorbet & tea/coffee with mince pies to finish) was excellent value at £21.95. One of the best Christmas meals I have ever had.

I love the Strickland Arms - the food is always excellent, with plentiful helpings. A starter would be enough if one weren't so greedy! The atmosphere is good, the waiting staff attentive but not "in your face". The upstairs rooms for parties are a little chilly, atmos-wise. The facilities for children are good.

I live about a mile from the Strick and regularly visit to eat and also as a refreshment stop during dog walks. It's a cosy friendly place, especially in winter when the log fire is burning. I've eaten here many times ( latest on Sunday) and the food is always tasty, very good value and beautifully presented. Other reviewers have... More

I went to the Strickland Arms for the first time last Saturday as part of a group of twelve including five children. I can't speak too highly of the place. The service was excellent and the waiting on staff were very patient whilst waiting for everyone to decide what they wanted to order. Not one of our group was disappointed... More
