Family evening meal

On an overnight stay in Kirkby Red Dragon Inn was recommended to us. The menu was great and the staff were very flexible in what we could have, for example they were fine about my mum having a children's meal! The food and the beer was excellent. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and a good price.

I would certainly recommend this pub for their Sunday lunch, every mouthful of food was tasty and their egg custard slice with icecream simply topped the experience. Vegetables cooked perfectly. Perfect pub in the beautiful town of Kirkby Lonsdale.

On a stopover during a solo road trip around the Lake District. The Red Dragon is ideally located on a quiet street close to town centre. Rooms are above a busy bar but you'll not be disturbed by it. Facilities are in keeping with most hotels of this rating. The staff make it special with their can-do attitude and good... More

This is a great pub in the beautiful town of Kirby Lonsdale. We called in for a few drinks- real ales served here and ending up having a super meal. The service was quick and efficient and the menu varied offering real home comfort type food which was very welcome on a drizzling Tuesday afterrnoon. The dessert chocolate cheesecake was... More

We called on a return visit from Lancaster as we had enjoyed the tapas type variety on a previous occasion. We arrived at 1702hrs and were informed that we could not choose from the tapas type menu as it stopped at 1700hrs. (There has to be a cut off time). On studying the late afternoon, evening menu I found there... More

There were five of us and we all had great meals. The chap at the bar was very friendly and when I mentioned my allergies he was very attentive and changed my meal to accommodate it without a fuss which always makes me happy. Would certainly visit again and we recommend it for a great meal.

Lovely inn in a lovely location. Good value, no nonsense food. Friendly, attentive staff. Recommend the bacon chop, Wizard ale and a superb cheeseboard. Just what I needed after a tiring day !
