Not bad for a lunchtime meal

Can't say this was anything spectacular but for a couple of paninis and a kids meal of frozen chicken nuggets it filled a hole. Waitress was friendly and attentive though so thank you girl with glasses :)

We had a fantastic meal here last night! The staff were warm and welcoming and were very friendly. The restaurant is very cosy and traditional. I ordered the lamb Henry which was absolutely beautiful and my partner had the beef and ale pie. The portions were a very good size and it was very good value for money. We would... More

The service is a bit slap dash. The lady behind the bar was friendly enough, but the rest need to learn how to smile and communicate properly. I had to send my burger back as it was cold and undercooked. No apology offered just took my burger and returned 10 minutes later with another one. Again there was no communication... More

My friend and I traveled here and was attracted to this restaurant by its outlook. I ordered a lasagna and my friend a roast beef. It was cold so we asked for hot water. The waitress said they only serve coffee or tea so no hot water, which was like " I just don't want to bother to get you... More

I had beef & ale pie which could have fed the family but was very nice and served with veg and choice of pots. Hubby had the beef stroganoff... More

We took a chance on this restaurant on Valentines evening, we were very impressed with the food and service, and was exactly what we were looking for. Would recommend it without hesitation.

My husband and I stayed for the weekend in Lake Windermere and we saw the varied menu outside this pub and decided to go back for tea. We were seated rather quickly and the staff seemed friendly. 15 minutes later and nobody had come to take our drinks order, not sure why as the restaurant wasn't full and I could... More
