I booked a table for four at short notice on a Thursday evening. Got a friendly welcome, and sat on comfy sofas with a drink until we had chosen our starters and mains. I had a tomato and mozarella salad, then a steak selection from the specials. It was all fresh and delicious, perfectly cooked with nice details and well... More

En route for the highlands of Scotland, my parents, my sisters and I made a stop in the Lake District and stayed overnight at the Stoneybeck Inn. My eldest sister had dined here before, enjoyed the experience and liked the look of the Inn for accommodation, so she booked a night in the annexe plus an evening meal as a... More

This was a random visit after a drive and on initial impressions I thought it was maybe a bit high end for what we were looking for. Nonetheless we went in and were promptly greeted by a member of staff. The food was high end restaurant food and for starter we shared the cheese soufflé, goats cheese bruschetta and pigeon....

Having passed the Stoneybeck inn a few time we booked an evening family meal here. On the down side it did seem to take quite a while for each course to arrive, there were only 6 of us not a big group and I was disappointed when pudding arrived. It was described as a sticky toffee baked Alaska, what arrived... More

Well the new menu for the stoneybeck is certainly refreshing. I had a the aubergine, courgette and lentil curry and I have to say it's the closest thing to a proper curry I have had since returning from India almost a year ago. To then top it off I had the flowers and berries pudding which looked beautiful and tasted... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your very positive review. Our menu is updated on a regular basis and we also have a daily specials board which offers multiple different additional options. I can only apologise for the lack of background music as we do usually have it on in our lounge and dining areas. We are very... More

My family and I have used this place for over thirty years, had many great celebrations, what a lovely evening it was when We last visited sat outside. We were mortified the front of the pub was scarred by weeds growing up the walls. The hanging baskets dead. Gravel in front of the function suite had weeds growing through it.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this response. The timing of your visit was unfortunate as we have scheduled some work to be done at the front of Stoneybeck which is taking place mid July and will hopefully freshen up the overall appearance of the place and I am sure the difference will be very noticeable.
