Stopped here on the way back from Windermere. As a group we ordered roast pork and roast beef. Meat felt like it had been frozen and microwaved. Yorkshire puddings were an even worse version of Aunt Bessie's and vegetables over cooked and tasteless. Even when I complained when paying I wasn't even offered money off so I insisted I wasn't...

We called in at 1430 and the staff were more than happy to accommodate seeing as they stopped serving lunch at 1500. The four of us all had lovely meals and the fish was very fresh and tasty. We finished off our meals with dessert and coffee liquors. Both the Manager and the Land lady Claire were all very nice... More

Just very poor quality food. Basic but adequate sounding food but very poorly prepared. Meat fatty & tough, fish tasteless & basic mash was downright poor.The young staff were pleasant enough but the food was just nowhere near even a basic standard. Shame really as the location is good.

This was my second time dining here. The first experience wasn't great but the restaurant is convenient when meeting family and friends in between Barrow and Kendal so we thought we would give it another go. The Inn's decor is nice and welcoming. But then all else is disappointing after you enter. The service is slow and seems a disgruntled... More

Stopped off here for a quick bite on way to the lakes. Lunch of a tasteless chicken burger( fried!) and chips / scampi and chips with drinks was £23.50. Staff seemed a bit inexperienced and not overly friendly. Nice setting that is an attractive proposition with smoke free parking and children's play park. Rip off prices though 😳

Clean room, spacious bathroom, suite a bit dated but did the job. Stopped 2 nights, first night bit spoilt by incompetent but nice waitress, the senior staff/owners spotted this and made up for it, meal 2nd night very nice. I get the impression if you have any issues at all senior staff owners would want to know and sort straight... More
