“a great place for visitors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

We often go the Lunesdale Arms, and it is really great for a weekend lunch - civilised, reasinable price and great food. The Lunesdale has a good atmosphere, very friendly service and altogether can be thoroughly recommended for those lunctimes or evenings when you want a bit more than just pub food, but don't want to get into the whole gastro experience.

“best place in the region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

I have eaten here many times and decided I should write to explain why its so good. The atmosphere is relaxed and easy going. The staff are always attentive and the food always wonderful. Unlike many try-hard places in this area the Lunedale is consistant and welcoming. Well worth a visit with family or a quiet evening out.

“Traditional pub environment with above average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

The Lunesdale Arms always delivers high quality food in a very pleasant and relaxing environment. The set menu plus specials board offer a wide variety of dishes and prices, and will satisfy everyone's needs. Main courses are excellent, and the desserts are always worth leaving room for. Service is usually very good, with well trained younger waitresses keeping up a high standard. A venue to be recommended.

“Always a treat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

I think this is my favorite restaurant in our entire area of No. Lancs/Cumbria. The menus are changing all the time, because they stress buying locally available meats, cheeses, breads, and veg. So you will find versions of your favorites, and great, creative taste combinations that are a good step above the normal inn food.
It is a relaxing, inviting, attractive, friendly place to have a terrifically well-prepared meal. Service is consistently excellent. It is always a treat to go to the Lunesdale Arms.

“Great value, tasty and beautifully served”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

This is a local gem, I live about 10 miles away. It is a friendly bar and restaurant with consistently good food, the best for a long way. The dining room is light and open, with scrubbed wooden tables and the work of local artists displayed on the walls. There is a roaring open fire in winter. There is a small regular menu, but best are the specials on the blackboard each day, a wide choice and at reasonable prices. The food is well presented, the flavours well-balanced, and everything is cooked on the premises. On weekday lunches they have a £10 menu where you can have a main meal plus a first course or a pud, these are very popular. If you want to take someone out for a reliably good but inexpensive meal, this is definitely the place to go. I've never found that the chef has an off-day, whenever I go it is always good.
