The Yewdale is a pub/restaurant/cafe in Coniston. The food is excellent, tasty and unpretentious. The service attentive and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed a great value dinner with a bottle of good wine. Staff worked hard to make our evening enjoyable. Thoroughly enjoyable evening

I've been visiting Coniston for years but its only recently that I've started using the Yewdale. Its a typical village pub, used by both locals & off-comers, and can get busy. Food is good solid 'pub grub' and shouldn't really disappoint (although visiting in late September I was disappointed by the choice of menu). A good plus for the place... More

My family and I, including a baby in a pram and a dog visited this place as we heard the food was of good quality. Upon arrival we were told we could only have food in the small bar area of the pub due to having a dog, which is rare in the very dog friendly Lake District. I then... More

I must take issue with your wholly inaccurate review. Firstly, dog friendly - we allocate 75% of our bar area for guests with dogs but do not allow dogs in our restaurant. When you arrived (without a reservation) only one table was free and this was in our dog-friendly area near the fire. Fortunately there was also space for your... More

Had dinner here with five friends in early October and was really impressed by this restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant is well laid out with a modern, warm feel to it. The menu was varied and great value. The quality of the food was tremendous. Some very tasty offerings - an excellent pressed pork belly... More

I had two breakfasts and two dinners here. All were excellent with no complaints. One was a hot pot of some sort, excellent and savory and hot and another just a pizza, also really good. Staff very friendly, which always makes things taste better.

Theakstons ales are always a big hit with me. We did not eat here but visited on a couple of occasions while staying in Coniston. Sat outside once and inside the other. Made to feel very welcome on each visit.
