"Warm & Friendly"

Situated off a main road in the village of Lindale, about two miles from Grange-over-Sands but well known by locals, this friendly 'pub' is worth finding. It had just started to snow when we parked, but inside there was a warm and friendly welcome. The dining area had about 10 tables - set for... read more

Booked for Sunday Lunch and I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. Plenty of choice with a set price for 2 or 3 courses at a very reasonable price. The meat was excellent and a good variety of fresh vegetables were cooked to perfection.

My partner and I went for dinner on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. The welcome was friendly ,the service prompt and we liked the warm and subdued ambience of the dining area .We both enjoyed our fishcake starters, my Herdwick lamb casserole was superb and my partner's curry satisfactory if unremarkable. All in all a very... More

Stopped off here for first time (having driven past it numerous times on way to Higginsons the Butchers in Grange) on the Monday after Christmas Day. The place was reasonably busy but the service was excellent, beers were good although not a huge deal of choice and the menu was varied and reasonably priced. Went for the fishcake starter which...

We decided to go to this pub after a bit of fireworks evening washout. Having searched around using trip advisor this popped up. So on a windy, wet fireworks night we set off. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a friendly gentleman who allowed us to sit any where so we choose a quiet corner. The menu... More

Dropped in for a meal and had not booked. They were most accommodating and we ate in the bar. Not a problem as people were eating at all the other tables in the bar. Vaery friendly staff and a hearty meal at a good price. We will return!
