Although I only ordered a toastie and chips I was surprised at the size of the meal, it was big and of great quality. The service we received was great too, however the lady that... read more

Basic food but plenty of it and not expensive. Two had steaks which were cooked exactly as asked, one had sausages which were nice and the other had duck in a tangy orange sauce. All plates cleared and too full for puds!

Then had sweets each both looked bought in, but were good. Great service and a reasonable price. This is one of the better pubs to eat at... More

The food and service was very good, and we were impressed that there were specials available too. The menu offered something for everyone, and included fish, chicken curries, pies etc. The portions were large and we all had trouble finishing our meals. The atmosphere inside felt more like a pub than a restaurant, but we enjoyed our evening and would... More

Stumbled on this place when we were staying overnight in Penrith on 18th July, the restaurant wasn't very busy but there were plenty of people eating outside. The food was lovely, homemade chicken kiev, served with buttered potatoes and side salad with a very creamy coleslaw, very good. My husband had the steak pie and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service...

This is where all the locals go and let me tell you - the doors was awesome! The menu is large and varied, three of us had veggie lasagne, meat lasagne and a chicken Kiev. The portions were decent sized and very good value for money. The food was delicious and hearty, just what we needed on a cold day.... More

Had my first meal here. Was quite busy but got a table in the bar area which we preferred over the darker, raised seating area. Time from ordering until the meal arrived was acceptable. The meals are what some would call 'proper pub grub'. The staff were friendly and the price was very good. Would definitely have a meal there... More
