Came here again over the Easter period and as good as the previous visits, staff friendly, food excellent and dog friendly! The pie of the day is a must if you do visit as they describe it as a 'proper pie' and its sure is, not what you normally get in a pub for a pie! I would advise to... More

Went with children and husband and in laws.Unfortunately the food wasn't great at all, I ordered sausage and mash, the mash was full of lumps and cool and the skin on the sausage was rubbery. No one finished their meals And all said they didn't enjoy it.

Very poor service. Food good but service let it down. Cleared half the table ten minutes before the rest. Then tried to charge us for nearly twice the price of the bill. Took visitors and was very embarrassed, won't be going again

We pre booked as a party of 12. Arrived on time. There was a specials board displayed , but when we tried to order off it we were told that it was just for lunch. The correct menus were brought to our table. They were photocopied loose sheets of paper. Not everything that was printed was available, very confusing. We... More

After a long walk in the beautiful South Lakes we were looking forward to eating at The Strickland Arms. We were seated at a table for four, and given menus. We chose our meals and waited...and waited. There were several staff chatting to each other and the restaurant was quiet, so why did it take them so long to take... More

Want somewhere special to take family and friends to? You will not be disappointed at the Strickland Arms. The food is freshly cooked and they provide a fantastic range across their menu. Lunch or dinner - this is a great place to head for. The staff are welcoming and when we went recently we had not booked but just called... More

We were a bit disappointed with the restuarnt manger,not allowing you to sit at tables to drink, especially when he put reserved signs out no them, in the two hours we were in no one sat at these tables.. The bar man was very professional and efficient to say he was the only one behind the bar..
