We dropped into the Red Dragon during a visit to Kirby Lonsdale for some lunch and were very pleased we did. Firstly the draught beers are very good, especially Cumberland Way bitter. We all decided to share the tasting platter which offers a good choice of different dishes and should satisfy most appetites. I can recommend the speciality sausage as... More

Visiting Kirby Lonsdale after the lakes we were surprised how many places had stopped serving meals after 2.30. Great town for tea and cake but July in the main season? We went to the Red Dragon and were spoilt for choice. Welcoming staff and good portions with fresh produce hit the spot. It was busy after we arrived so it... More

Visited for early dinner last week. Food was average and the prices were high for the quality. Hot wings were soggy and certainly not hot and the crab cakes were dry and tasteless. Mains were slightly better but should be about £8-9 each max rather than £10-13.

Smallish menu but decent for a pub, standard pub fare so go expecting that. Service was friendly but £4 for a pint of Peroni...come on we're not in London.

We loved this place!!! Nicely done up inside with excellent beers...the lakeland lager, Trooper & Dizzy Blonde all very good. The food was great value...a gorgeous garlic, cheesy mushroom dish was divine, very good Sunday lunch and one of the nicest pies ever. We ate there another 2 times in the week with friends who stayed with us. Another plus... More

After a long wander around on a very hot day we called in just to have a shandy. The pub was lovely and cool. We had a look at the menu and thought we try the Red Dragon Board to share which was amazing. The choice of times to have on the board is varied and extensive. Quality excellent. Staff... More

We went to the Red Dragon on a Sunday for our evening meal. There was a good choice on the menu. I am Gluten Intolerant and this was well catered for. Our meals were great and reasonably priced. The staff were helpful and friendly. We will return on our next visit to Kirkby Lonsdale.

Called in here when our first choice restaurants was too busy and too expensive. This is just a traditional Englkish pub, serving really good quality pub meals. Facilities were clean. Staff were friendly. Meals and drinks were good value for money. I'd go again.

I'm really surpised that this pub isn't ranked higher on TA. It deserves to be! We had not intended to eat here but compared its menu with three other better rated TA offerings and it beat them hands down. Right there on the main shopping street so well placed even if parking outside isn't in prospect. Service was friendly. Food... More
