My husband and I were looking for a new place to find for a good Sunday lunch, we came accross this place and we were very impressed!! The food was delicious and the service and staff were brilliant! Very reasonably priced too!

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your recent visit and your Sunday Roast with us - we have a very good reputation for our roasts, perhaps because we put a lot of thought, care and attention into making it a little bit different from the norm whilst still being a deliciously comforting meal! We look forward to welcoming you to... More

My partner & myself went for a meal the other Friday evening. I had visited the pub once before last year, for lunch, and wanted to go back. The food was beautifully cooked, how many places can cook steak to perfection? My "medium rare" was amazing! As for the desserts - I'm glad I don't live locally, the Lemon &... More

As for the desserts, we put as much thought... More

Me and my wife discovered this place when we moved to the area - and we felt like we had stumbled across a proper gem. It's a beautiful old pub, the staff are always really friendly and the food is always excellent. (We eat here regularly, and it never lets us down!) Highly recommended!!

Excellent food and very good steaks. A great place for a good meal in a quiet pub with atmosphere in a small village away from the tourist throng.

Having read good reports about the food at this place my partner and I booked a table for dinner to celebrate an anniversary.On arrival we were extremely disappointed to discover that only a very limited menu of ordinary pub food was on offer-a fact that was not mentioned when we made our booking.The food we had was ok (and fair...

So sorry to hear of your disappointment. The reason for the limited menu on the evening of your visit was that the North Lonsdale Agricultural Show was being held in the village on this day and as expected we were very busy, so in order to ensure we were able to serve customers quickly and efficiently we opted to serve...

Ate here for our anniversary on a Friday evening. The menu was great and the only problem we had was deciding what to have. The food was excellent and beautifully presented.

The General Burgoyne offers a winning combination of good food and a good pint or glass of wine. It is more than just a local village pub, offering a good selection of bistro style food to suit every taste, coupled with a friendly welcome and good service. We have eaten here twice while staying in the village, the first time... More

We have eaten many times at the General Burgoyne and have always enjoyed the food and the ambience. Last night we were just out for a 'cook's night off' so we tried the 'Two Courses for £10 Menu' Once again it was excellent! Great quality and great value.

The food and service was really superb - we couldn't fault anything. As for the place itself, despite the comments left by the owners in response to other reviewers' suggestion that it isn't a country inn, we would agree. Te General Burgoyne is more like a restaurant with a bar and sitting area. Which is fine - because it is... More

Thank you for you recent review and your kind words, we're very pleased you enjoyed your meals. The definition of pub and restaurant are, we feel, very subjective, as the reviews either side of your own go to show.

As we were staying in Little Urswick for a few weeks the General Burgoyne became our local. We had a lovely BBQ on Fathers Day sat outside listening to a jazz band.
