Now called "The Flying Pig".....great food and good atmosphere.

Not sure how long ago they changed the name but I don't think it was very long ago. We went in by recommendation from our hotel and the food was great. Between us we had the Potted Shrimps and Crayfish Cocktail to start then the Scampi and one of the "guest pies" they had on. While the service was... read more

Very Poor Service and Food. Out of eight people none would return for a meal. One suffered food poisoning.

Had a lovely meal here whilst staying in the lakes. Would definately visit again. Only reason it wasn't a five star for us was the limited selection of drinks available on tap.

A quick lunch before heading home after a memorable couple of days in the lakes. I have to say that it was the worst of all the places we visited. It's not terrible! It's just that the exterior tells a different story to the interior. It has great kerb appeal but the menu and service were average and bland. Our... More

Had dinner here one evening and the quality is still as good as ever after not visiting for a few years. There are large portions of good quality and nicely presented food with good service. You cannot book but has a ffirst come first served basis.

Called in for lunch on a day trip to Bowness from Lakeside. Glad we did. Sandwiches were around £5, on lovely bread and nice and tasty. Really reasonable. Drinks were expensive - I think a pint of diet coke was £3! This is the Lakes though and prices are inflated. Still, a great lunch was had by all and the... More

The food here was excellent, can't rate that highly enough, especially for the incredibly reasonable price. We came for tea about 6pm the restaurant was full so we're lucky to get a table. The staff were very friendly and served us quickly initially. We were allowed to take our time eat leisurely. Would most definitely go back.

We had a Sunday lunch at Sutherlands, good portions, the tomato and basil soup we had for starters was delicious. Good value for money.
