We had just arrived in Kirkby Lonsdale and wanted to eat somewhere that was dog friendly. My husband popped in to see if they had any tables available, they had 1 that wasn't reserved round the back of the bar which was perfect as we had plenty of room for our dog. We ordered smoked haddock & dill fishcakes with... More

Rude and confrontational Landlady I had planned a stay in Kirkby Lonsdale for my husband’s 65th birthday, and had booked two nights at The Pheasant Inn (which proved to be a fantastic place, with both friendly staff and excellent food). However, having been influenced by the promise of luxurious accommodation and excellent hospitality, I was persuaded to cancel the second... More

My husband booked us a night here for us for my birthday. We usually stay at The Royal but unfortunately it was fully booked and thought we would give this a try. On arrival we were taken up to our room and then asked to wait outside it as the lady could not find our room key, we waited 10... More

We eat here regularly with family as the food is excellent. The staff are welcoming and helpful and it is also dog friendly if you are out for the day. Sunday Unchained are very busy so unless you book in advance its a time to avoid.

Stayed in KL for a few days (not here) and visited 5 of the 9 closely situated watering holes.This is one of the larger ones and seems to have received considerable investment by the brewery (Robinsons).Most places were very quiet as you might expect midweek in January and punters here could be counted on one hand on our two visits....

Went here while visiting the lakes with my other half and liked the look of the menu from outside. Inside was a well decorated and inviting pub. Menus had a wide range of options and also specials which looked very good. Ended up getting a steak and a burger. The steak was perfectly cooked and the chef was kind enough... More
