Evening meals

We had two visits. The first visit we had Gammon chips and peas and it was delicious. The second visit we opted for Sunday lunch although it was teatime. The meat was fine but the roasties and veg were over cooked. The staff are always very welcoming and the atmosphere is great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our family Easter Sunday at the Rusland Pool. It was child friendly with little gift bags available free of charge as well as a selection of toys to keep the little ones entertained. The service was first class and all the meals delicious, despite it being the Easter break we didnt have to wait. After the meal... More

We were staying in Back Barrow and for our family's tastes the Rusland Pool offered a better menu than the local alternatives - clearly above 'pub grub' with good usage of local produce but not too 'fancy' or costly. We ate in the sun lounge area which stayed light and airy until well into a spring evening. The welcome was... More

Booked in for Sunday lunch last month. Spotlessly clean and lovely surroundings but we had a long wait for our food and when it did arrive we were all slightly disappointed. The roast beef consisted of one slice of meat and for those if us that choose from the main menu the chips were so over cooked they snapped when... More

Went to Rusland Pool last night for a family meal. Good service, good food. A very enjoyable evening. A member of staff offered to take a family group photo for us which was nice.

My friend and I dined here last night after I had found it on the internet. We had come for a spa day elsewhere and really wanted some lovely food and what we found exceeded our expectations. We were seated in the cosy bar/restaurant and the 2ladies who were serving were chatting with us and making us very comfortable. My... More

I called in at The Rusland Pool whilst en route to Barrow with my daughter last month & I can honestly say we weren't disappointed. The staff were very attentive but not overpowering and nothing was too much trouble. We were seated in the back bar area which is a traditional setting with wooden beams, brasses and pictures of the... More
