“Good pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We ate here with friends who have stayed in Ravenglass loads of times so have eaten here a lot. They booked a booth which we didn't think necessary but we were glad they did, as tables quickly filled up. However, for future vists we'd try a normal table, as there isn't a lot of space at the booths, and after a while you can start to feel uncomfortable.

The food is hearty pub fayre and value for money, and the bar has a selection of Jennings ales, which always make for a good combination.

This is a great place to dry off/warm up/fill up after a trip on the railway, we'd definitely recommend.

“Nice Place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I stay in Eskdale/Wasdale every year to climb mountains, drink beer and do photography. One day, we decided to hop on the railway, and go to Ravenglass. We had a few beers, which were kept excellently, and some light food. They even had a Grafton ale on, which is microbrewed where we come from in Notts. The landlady was very knowledgable.

“Bloody beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I had been told to come here by a work friend who visits on a regular basis. As it was my sister 30th birthday we decided to go for a meal and some drinks! We had reserved a table. Suprisingly with it being winter there was a good range of real ales and my husbands favourite 'Cumberland ale' we sat down and had a fantastic meal, which I didn't manage to finish, they even had a good selection of food for my 2 children who ate all of there's and then enjoyed thier free drink that was included with thier meal! by the time we had finished our mains the kitchen had closed but we were still able to order deserts! We were the only people left in and didn't want to go home yet so the landlord let us stay as late as we wanted! Overall I had a brilliant experience and I will definitely be visiting again very soon!! As for the decoration I think it is very snug and makes you feel homely! Thank you to everyone at the ratty! Will see you soon!
