Visited here for a quick drink after scaling Scafell. It was so nice that we immediately decided to come back the next day for dinner. However, it was so popular we had to eat at 6! Imagine that! Anyway, we did do that and we were not disappointed. The egg in haggis was superb, as was the chicken and chorizo... More

We usually have a lunch here and we know they are not cheap and the food is still good, and not pub food, but...they are getting very stingy on the portions. The Inn itself has a beautiiful view of the valley. They wanted £4.50 for a portion of chips which I remembered were big, but we didn't want chips. My... More

Went on the basis of Trip Adivsor reviews and that we were in the area. We were not disappointed. Ideally you need to book as it gets very full very quickly but we eat early becaue of our children so had no problems. There is a children's menu which is all great home cooked food or I am sure they... More

We ate fish and chips and Welsh rarebit here on a drizzly day when the open fire was very welcome. Both were fine, though would have liked a bit more cheese on my toast. Comfortable seating, good beer and a friendly barman.

My partner and I recently enjoyed a celebratory evening at the Langstrath Inn commemorating a special anniversary. We have been a few times before and always enjoyed the service, location,friendly atmosphere and excellent meals. We were not disappointed and even though we were advised that there were new chefs in the kitchen our meals were outstanding. The bar staff have... More

Last week I eat here on three successive evenings and if I could have stayed in Borrowdale for 14 nights I'd have eaten here 14 times! Why? Last year around this time I discovered this inn and thought the food and service both excellent. This year I'd rate the food, staff, and service as fantastic - the best in England... More

Absolutely great. Arrived on a cold afternoon to be met by a roaring fire and a delicious lunch. Lovely atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff.

We visited the Langstrath Inn on the basis of its beautful, remote location, but were very impressed with the excellent, well organised service and great food. I particularly appreciated the soft and tasty bread with olive oil and butter which materialised on our table within a couple of minutes of ordering. Well kept beers too. Highly recommended.

we recently came across this little treat of a place whilst camping nearby. The food is excellent, the staff are great and helpful,and the actual pub is quaint and snug. Defo worth a visit but book first as it's so busy. The meal is one of those you remember when you are really hungry and want to eat it again... More
