Enjoyable Business Meal

Had a Business Meal. We sat in large room at the back, this was initially a bit cold but soon seemed to warm up. I had Black Pudding&Scotch Egg/Steak/Jam Rolly Polly all were excellent as was the service.

Attentive without being in your face and the only negative was the manager/owner being rude to a young member of staff who left a plastic bottle of milk on the bar near the coffee machine at a very busy time when the...

Came for lunch here as our first choice was closed, the staff were very friendly and gave us some local history about Muncaster Castle, the food was excellent, if we in the area again would definitely go here again.

2nd time here, bit of an anniversary treat, great location to get away from it all, nice rooms, very helpful male receptionist, but let down from dark haired girl behind bar. Bit unhelpful from one individual but not enough to stop us from returning

I needed somewhere to print a few pages and sign them, then wait for a courier to pick up the document. The hotel reception was very helpful and went beyond what I normally expect for customer service. We had lunch (bar snack) whilst we waited, the food was excellent, especially the open steak sandwich with onions. Will defiantly drop in... More

We had caught the train to Ravenglass and needed a quick, late lunch for four. The decor is modern, the attached gallery had fantastic lithograph pictures for sale and general experience was excellent. The barman served a good beer, made suggestions on what would work and great pub food was served.The 'young lass' who served was just great. whowhoservedvvery nice
