Lovely meal

Really enjoyed the meal here. Chose food from the main menu. There is a two course for £10 menu but they are small portions, no good for big eaters! Posh fish and chips was awesome. Good value for menu and the service was excellent, very attentive. A great find for the South Western Lakes area.

we ordered a lunchtime sandwich each. You could either have salad or crisps with it, not both. When they arrived we were taken aback by the size of the sandwich. Thought half must have been left behind. There was approx 4x4 inch square of focaccia bread. Mine was roast beef with onions. The slice of beef did not fill the... More

Two of us and our dog called in during a stroll today (Sunday). We were allowed the dog in the bar area where we choose to eat but understandably not in the dining room. Being able to take the dog inside with us made all the difference. We were given a choice of tables straight away and asked for our... More

So, the food was pretty good, but maybe a little over priced compared to some of the other restaurants in the Ulverston area. The staff were very friendly and there were some good beers to choose from. This is what I'm leaving the rating for, I won't score you down for the below. Over hearing one of the staff telling...

Thank you for your review. We are however a little disappointed you only rate us as average yet describe our food as great. Our food is competitively priced when you compare like for like, and often described as excellent value, particularly our 2 Courses for £10 midweek menu. However, price and value are subjective and we take on board your... More

My wife and her friend had the fixed price two course menu and both ordered fish and chips. The fish was listed as haddock, but it turned out to be the smallest portion I have ever seen for a main course. I ordered a steak medium rare and it was a reasonable size, good quality beef, tasty but slightly over-cooked.... More

Sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your meals. Had you mentioned something at the time we could have tried to rectify your perceived problems. The fixed price menu you mention is a 2 Courses for £10 offer, which the majority ofcustomers find to be great value and portion sizes just right for a midweek tea. The fish is... More

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.
