My wife and I recently ate here on the Sunday and both had a delicious roast I do not know what the chef does with his meat and the puree but it was to die for. We decided to eat here the following Wednesday and ordered the true grit sharer which appeared on our table and all I can say... More

Just a nice sunny December drive to Cartmel. Decided on trying the Royal Oak in the square, it had an open fire and nice atmosphere. I ordered the Sunday roast beef and my partner the fish and chips. The male waiter, who was very pleasant and chatty, was efficient getting our drinks without have to go to the bar. The... More

Spent far too long sat by the fire drinking copious amounts of red wine and eating from the very reasonable priced menu. A must visit place, the place is great and staff are so friendly too. We loved it here.

Called for for lunch one cold, frosty, November day, warm and welcoming inside with real log fire, which we sat by. The staff were pleasant and very attentive. I ordered the wild mushroom and celeriac risotto with truffle oil and it was outstanding in both taste and presentation, my companion ordered the gammon and was not disappointed, cooked to perfection...

Had a chicken and a beef burger here next to the roaring fire on a freezing midweek lunch time. Both burgers were fantastic. Whatever glaze they had put on the chicken burger it was absolutely delicious. Skinny fries and a Lancaster Blonde to top it off and we were very happy. Service was good and cheerful. Was fairly busy for... More

Went twice for lunch over a few days. On both occasions everyone in our party said the food was fantastic. This should be 5 star but on the second visit it took 45 minutes for food to come and it wasn't busy. The waiters were not very good on second visit. The pub has a very authentic and comfortable style... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel but decided to dine here one night. ...I had the Lamb Pie...my hubby had the most amazing Mexican Gammon....we are still talking about it now. Staff were very helpful and even dimmed the lights on my table as I have a problem with bright lights (thank-you). We would certainly eat here again on... More
