Good meal for the price.

Fish and chips was delicious. Large portions. Friendly staff. Not a long wait. Cute bar area. Would be nice if they had some more choices of beer.

We went here for lunch with two children. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the waitress was fantastic. It is a lovely clean hotel, slightly dated decor but clean and comfortable restaurant area. The only I thing I didnt really like was that the lunch tables were situated in what appeared to be a communal sitting room, with large families, suitcases... More

We had arrived late in Ravenglass so were grateful that they could fit us in. Our drink order was taken at the bar but we couldn't browse the food menus as they didn't have enough. When we sat down we asked one waitress if we could order our food and were told that they took the food requests in the... More

Friendly staff fitted us in but they could do so much more if they remained open after 2045. Booking is therefore essential. We had Roast Breast of Chicken £14.50, A taste of lamb £16.95 (recommended) and two children's dishes of sausage chips and beans £9.90 all of which were all good sized portions and cooked well. Bordering on very good.

Again we try this Hotel, why I really don't know! But this time is the last. The food has improved at least with a new menu it is better, but still over priced. But this time the girl behind the bar gave us lemonade in pint glasses for children !!! and charged us silly prices. When I ask why I... More

Lovely food & excellent value for money. The steak & ale pie was beautiful, packed with steak and undoubtedly homemade.

Seriously don't let the last in depth review put you off, we're currently staying here and the room is amazing, clean and they don't mind dogs (room 5). The food is great and the people very welcoming. They can't do enough for you, well worth a visit.

Visited the Pennington and I wouldn't bother again. Over priced rubbish food. Slow service. Don't bother.

Hotel on arrival not as good as the reviews. I have never written a bad review but I think the service at breakfast deserves one. It isn't the fault of the waitress's, there just wasn't enough staff. It's not very good for a hotel when a client has to knock on the kitchen door politely to ask for his tea... More

We went here for lunch on a weekday when visiting relatives staying at a nearby campsite. The food was superb and all four of us enjoyed our meals. I had the crab starter, which was delicious, followed by the taste of Cumbrian lamb, which I would definitely recommend. We ate in the bar area as we had our dog with... More
