We regularly stop for tea, cake and real ale and always find the food to be good and well presented. Sitting in the garden with a good view of Skiddaw is recommended and the hotel provide blankets for extra padding on the seats. Usually at least 3 real ales on offer and dogs are welcome in the bar.

Middle Ruddings was within walking distance of our B & B and was recommended to us. The first night, we were able to get a table in the conservatory, which was lovely, but the bar area didn't look as nice. As a result, we didn't go another night when there was no space in the conservatory. Food was nicely cooked... More

A busy, cozy establishment with an excellent Variety of dishes, and service that was "just right." Excellent chicken dishes ,with red cabbage. We ate there 3 times in four days.

We ate here the first of our nights in the Lake District. We were greeted in a strange manner by the landlord and the waiting staff were....a bit odd. I'm writing this some 10 days after our visit and to be honest I'm struggling to remember the food: I know all four of us thought it OK but nothing more.... More

As we were staying close by, our hosts recommended this restaurant. We booked a table, but there were several empty, so was not necessary that particular night. Service was good, atmosphere was lacking, and some musak in the background may have helped. We ordered the duck and rump steak...generous portions and cooked as we ordered, no complaints!

My partner and I ate here last week - both had the slow roast lamb. The lamb was good and the portion, generous. Service was ok. I then had the dessert of the week - Sticky toffee ice cream sunday. Very disappointing - tasted like yesterday's sticky toffee pudding mixed with ice cream, topped with cream and toffee sauce -... More
