We called in tonight, without booking, for food. Excellent welcome and they found us a table although advised it would have to be vacated by 8pm. This gave us 2 hours to have a family meal. They even had puzzles/colouring for our 6 year old daughter to keep busy! Her meal was the kid's gammon steak and pineapple. Superb and... More

We had a lovely meal in very friendly surroundings in this busy pub/restaurant. The food was great, and so filling we only managed two courses. A great evening.

Had a fantastic delicious meal here having been recommended from a friend. All the dishes we chose were perfectly cooked and nicely presented. The menu is select with additions of some fantastic specials which seemed to follow the season. Something for everyone. Portion sizes were good and not over facing, leaving room for more. There was a welcoming atmosphere, lovely... More

Fell upon this place by pure accident having been to Cartmell for the day. The pub was clean and although busy and quite possibly understaffed the manager found us a table after a short wait. The food and drink was top notch, and certainly reasonably priced at £15 for 3 courses ! Poached pear, blue cheese salad and potato and... More

Visited twice - each time with four guests - for dinner and once at lunch time. On the lunch time visit one of the orders was for lime and soda. What was given was lime and lemonade. When it was pointed out that these were different (and at different prices) there was a debate with the barman - eventually the... More

Called here en spec after Cartmel races. Sorted us a table out even though they were busy and we both thought the food was amazing. I had the lamb shank with a lamb jus which was really really good. My brother had fish pie which he said was one of the best he'd had. Highly recommended

The steak and ale pie was first rate. Same applies to the sausages, which my wife chose - very meaty and flavoursome. Waiter and waitress were very cheerful and attentive. Altogether a most enjoyable dining experience.
