There was a man singing in the bar area with his guitar and the children enjoyed requesting songs. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. We all... read more

Just moved to Little Urswick and decided to try our new local The General Burgoyne for dinner and drinks on Saturday night. Can not say a bad word about it at all. As soon as we walked in we were greeted with friendly hello's and looked after until we left. The food was delicious and we tried a new wine... More

I have visited this pub for meals on several occasions and have now given up. The last time I went was with a group of twelve. The my roast lunch was expensive but promised much. I was disappointed that meat in my meal was cold. When I complained to the waitress it was replaced. This was the third time I... More

We went here for an evening meal during our holiday, and opted for the two courses for £10 option. The portion sizes were more than enough for us, and we were especially impressed with the ham hock starter.

We came here on a Business dinner activity as a get to know you group. I chose here as the food quality was great every other time I had been, so wanted to show it off to all the new starters. It was last minute, and I wasn't sure they'd seat us, but they kindly offered to seat 30 of... More

Factually incorrect review which I have reported to TA. In addition, we would like to inform future customers that we do not and never have broken licensing laws by allowing a 12 year old to serve alcohol!! And furthermore, we did not steal from this party - between the party they paid exactly the amount owed and not a penny... More
