We recently stayed close by to this country inn and though we'd give it a go. On arrival we decided just to have a drink first and proceeded to a table outside. A little later we decided to have some food so I went in to ask for some menus, when I asked the question to the waiter who was... More

My daughter and boyfriend are currently enjoying a weeks holiday in the Lake District and had hoped for an evening meal here this evening but were continually ignored despite requests to order food. A tourist destination such as this should recognise the need for customer service, We are being encouraged to "staycation" but when we experience service such as this... More

We arrived at the restaurant to find it half empty, to then be told it would be half an hour wait. Fine, we thought, maybe they had lots of people coming who had booked tables. After being given the menus (20 minutes later), and having picked what we wanted, we were shown to our table. A table which had been... More

We stayed for two nights here. We chose it as it was the best value B&B we could find that was rated highly. Everywhere else was double the price. The rooms were simple but clean and comfortable. The staff could not do enough for us and the breakfast? I can honestly say it is the best cooked breakfast I have... More

We called for an evening meal. Staff were welcoming at bar. The conservatory is a lovely place to sit on a summer evening. The vegetarian food was acceptable. The starter quinoa salad was quite nice. The stumpie tart was okay. We liked the side vegetables not being overcooked.

We stayed (and dined) here overnight after walking from Rosthwaite as part of the Inn Way. The room was very large and spotless - and the bath (rather than the more normal shower only) was very much appreciated, especially by my wife. The staff were very efficient, but also personable and relaxed, and breakfast was very good. Recommended for fellow... More

We were staying nearby in Thornthwaite and the owner of our cottage recommended eating here. We were not disappointed. My husband had a lovely vegetarian dish, I had pork medallions and the best potato dauphinous I have tasted in a while. My sister in law had duck and my brother in law had salmon. We had an excellent bottle of... More

Only had one meal there, midweek evening, with my parents (92 and 87) and my partner. My folks were staying elsewhere in Braithwaite but were so impressed with that first meal at Middle Ruddings that they abandoned their table at the hotel they were staying in and had another two evening meals at Middle Ruddings. The place is instantly welcoming,... More

Many thanks for your posting. We take all comments seriously and address issues when necessary and your points have been raised with staff and the chefs. Crab salad we regard as rather a treat and compliments well our other fishes dishes on the menu but perhaps this wasn't the one for you to choose on this visit. You are not... More
