Visit the Royal Oak when in Cartmel, great pub, great staff and great food. It gets really busy even in the quiet months so book your table to eat, otherwise you might have a long wait.

Lovely food, the lamb was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was nice and cosy with the log burning fire. A great place if you just want to stop for drinks - has a good selection of local ales. Would definitely return.
