Excellent service in an old world ambience at an affordable price with superb service from accommodating staff

The menu and service here are really excellent with a good choice of wine and cask ales. The menu is varied and they really do know how to cook steak!

Quiet little pub. I popped in for something to eat whilst in the area. As I was staying in a B&B nearby. I thought it might be pub food but it was a restaurant / Pub. Went for the 2 course for £10 which was quite nice especially the cheesecake just wasnt expecting it to come on a slate.

We went for dinner twice during a week's stay in the Lake district, on Sunday and Thursday evening. We booked both times but needn't have done on the Thursday. On both occasions our meals were excellent. Local ingredients, beautifully cooked and in ample portion sizes. The rump of lamb was especially good and my husband (who normally laments the quality...

Initially dined on a Saturday night. Our mains were sublime and my husband said the sticky toffee pudding is the best he's ever had. Service took a dip as the restraunt got busier & felt a bit sorry for the waiter as he was meeting himself coming back. Despite our slight disappointment in service we thought we'd give Sunday dinner... More

Chef came out personally to apologise for not having sea bass, chose pan fried mackerel instead which was best ever.

Had a very good Sunday lunch here, roast silverside of local beef with Yorkshire pudding. Vegetables included really tasty roasted butternut squash and garlic dauphinois potatoes as well as the inevitable roasties. Sadly we were too full to try out any dessert. Maybe next time. The Orangery room is a bright and comfortable place to eat. Service was friendly and... More

Went here on a 'Date night' with my partner, never been before (Despite living locally) and after asking workmates for recommendations this was one of the two quite highly favoured. So...on arrival we found the atmosphere, pub surroundings, and staff all very inviting and 'homely'. The Menu whilst not large in choice (Not always a good thing in my opinion)... More

Booked a table for a meal this evening with hubby, my son and his lady for their birthdays - last minute - (had planned to go elsewhere but they were full) - and wasn't expecting anything special as last time ventured in there was years ago.... How wrong was I... Absolutely lovely. Food was hot and very very tasty. Service... More
