Great Sunday lunch

We had the Sunday roast for lunch and it was very good. Huge serves and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly. Based on our experience we would recommend this restaurant.

We. Arrived around 5:30 hoping to eat but meals weren't being served then. We looked at the menu and when I asked about vegetarian food was asked if I ate fish! Strange! I had the choice of 2 items a pasty or a quiche, neither of which sounded enticing. Great disappointment. The staff were pleasant helpful and courteous. Ales and... More

Was at Ravenglass for a day on the trains and cream tea at Dalegarth. We had this at lunchtime and then wanted a hot meal before driving home. Went in all the larger restaurants in Ravenglass which were busy, so decided to try the Pennington. Had drink in the bar, chose our food, and went through to the restaurant which... More

We popped in here for dinner and had a great meal- fish and chips and lamb mains went down a treat! Service was very friendly and attentive.

We stop here are a walk from Ravenglass to Dalegarth and returned by train. The bar is spacious, clean and comfortable and we enjoyed a few drinks as it was our last day in Ravenglass. The drinks are more expensive than the other pubs however the surroundings are more comfortable and this is a hotel. We enjoyed a good meal... More

Nice hotel, very clean and well decorated. No one on reception when we arrived but that was not a great drama. Bar was nice and service was good. Rooms are very nice, well decorated and furnished. Our room was a bit noisy as it was near the kitchen and the staff were a bit loud. There was also a constant... More

This place is an absolute gem. My only complaint was the view from our room looked out at a roof but that's a very small thing. The room was immaculate, lovely spacious bathroom with bath/shower. Tea/coffee tray had a little cafetiere and fresh coffee, a little touch that makes a difference. We were there for a friend's wedding and the... More

We were staying nearby and stumbled upon this hotel and went in for a drink. The staff are young but very welcoming. My partner didn't know which cider to have but the barmaid let him taste them to see which he preferred. We decided to stay for a meal as nothing was too much trouble which we could have either...
