Very popular for Christmas lunch and the food looked great. The landlord is welcoming and is front of house. Dog friendly

We discovered the Yewdale on our last night in the Lakes but wish we had found it earlier in the week. We didn't book and were shown to a table in the cafe area of the restaurant. There was a varied and interesting choice on the menu and the food was cooked to order and presented beautifully. The portions were... More

We had been into Yewdale inn a couple of times for a drink, which was fine and the bar staff seemed friendly, so decided to book a table for dinner. We ordered fish and chips and beef burger. It is quite pricey, so I expected decent food. We waited a while as they were busy. When the meals arrived we... More

We popped in here as we were staying nearby, whilst on holiday. I asked if they had tables for food - the "gentleman" in the lobby was rude in his response so we made a point to not bother going in here the whole time we were in Coniston.

This was a case of a place simply not being able to handle the footfall. We came for lunch at about 1:30 and the cafe was pretty full inside which was understandable as the weather hadnt been great. We had to clear the table ourself as it still was uncleared from the last people. There were three tables free, all... More

In Coniston to cruise the lake on The Steam Yacht Gondola. We arrived in the village at 12.30 so missed the 13.00 cruise so booked the 14.30. So with time to kill we strolled around the centre and decided we needed lunch. The Yewdale was clearly busy, with diners sitting outside in the sunshine, so decided to give it a... More

Arrived at 6pm (as dinner service started) got turned away from an empty restaurant as they was fully booked, chose to sit in the bar and have the same food, we couldn't order food for 30 minutes. Ordered food at 6.30 came within half an hour. Very disappointed with the burger meat was very bland, meat was textures and half... More

Had dinner here with my wife and friends Start with the positive. Good fish and chips, and had a little garnish of capers and onions. Pretty good sticky toffee as well But the burger was terrible. Cheap processed meat. Rubbery and solid. Fatty back on it. The whole thing was pretty soggy. Not great service either. The staff would completely... More

He apologised for delay saying there was a big backlog..we noticed we were the last to order and by 8.30 no one else... More

Entered the bar at about 6:30 pm with my brother and son and asked what appeared to be the landlord/manager for a table for 10. (Place was empty). He said he could only take 7. Fair enough we said we could split up into 2 x 5s. "No we can only take 6" (not sure why the head count went... More
