Visited Middle Ruddings for dinner on a Monday night in June. Good service, good atmosphere (but quite quiet). I had the lamb dish for main which was amazing - really tasty and a large portion. Very nice shiraz too!

We had been driving around in the rain looking for a local restaurant to eat when we drove past Middle Ruddings and thought we would give it a go. It felt a bit like a pub full of locals/regulars and to begin with we felt a little out of place. Our waiter was a bit over-familiar which was nice at... More

Stayed one night at the end of June. Ate in the evening whilst sat outside on a lovely summers evening. Had been recommended the Steak and Ale Pie which I then ordered. Staff were friendly and attentive, sadly the pie was not as good as i had been expecting. Pastry was fine, as were the vegetables, but the steak! Several... More

While staying in nearby Thornthwaite we dined twice at Middle Rudding. Mine host is very welcoming and all the staff were friendly and efficient. On the second occasion we dined in the conservatory which makes for a very pleasant place to dine. The food was excellent and very well presented - vegetables not over cooked.

We discovered this place last year whilst staying at nearby Portinscale were we have stayed for the past 6 years, only wish we had found it earlier. The food is excellent and we go at least two or three times during our annual weekly stay in the lakes. The menu is limited but has a good range to cater for... More

We visited this hotel/restaurant whilst staying in Braithwaite. We had eaten lunch out so just shared a savoury platter which was quite ample for us. Whilst we were eating we watched other guests being served with main courses and they were absolutely huge. This can be a bit off putting and we can only assume that they serve large portions...

Lovely staff, couldn't be more helpful and friendly. We thought the food, however, was a little on the average side (sorry). Good choice of beers and wines. Nice bar area, restaurant felt a little tired but all in all an ok night.

We had a great meal out with a large family group here and thoroughly enjoyed all our food and the overall experience. The staff were good, food excellent. Really tasty. Huge lamb portions and the children were over the moon with the deserts. All round great food.
