Just brought my wife and children to eat at the royal oak, the food was brilliant and the service is second to none. Jonathan was brilliant and made an effort with the kids. Will be coming again.

We sought a pub for lunch in the centre of Cartmel, which had a garden for three small children, so that they would have a little more freedom of movement.

visited here to eat whilst in cartmel, service seemed very slow and food, when it eventually arrived was average at best, prices not too bad and staff friendly enough.

We stayed overnight for our visit to l'enclume and was very happy with the place. Friendly and profesional service, comfy well apointed room. A complimentary glass of wine and a cracking full breakfast in the morning. Mike who seems to handle everything is a credit to the place. 10/10

We ate here during the day and the food was very tasty. I had pork belly, which was cooked to perfection. My husband accompanied his meal with a flight of beers which he really enjoyed.

It had just started to rain; we went to the door to investigate, then the manager saw us, opened it and welcomed us in warmly, so we decided to stay. It's a lovely, cosy, traditional pub with a large beer garden by the river. The menu is extensive; some traditional dishes but mostly modern and fashionable with an Italian flavour.... More
