Visited for an evening meal whilst staying in Ravenglass for a few days. The bar and eating area was clean and spacious, there were also tables outside in a courtyard if the weather was suitable. The staff were friendly and efficient and we did not have to wait long before our meal was brought to table. The portions were generous... More

We stayed in Ravenglass for 3 nights & for our 1st night booked in for a meal at Ratty Arms. We thought we would compare food at The Pennington on our second night & were very pleased, so much that our 3rd night was also a meal here. Would recommend you phone & book & we had no problem bringing... More

Nipped in here after a walk on the beach. Sat in the courtyard with the dogs and water bows were provided. Sign actually says dogs and muddy boots welcome. The sun was out and we had a delicious platter with pork pie. Ham. Beef. Cheese. Salad and various pickles. Absolutely delicious.

We had The Penington recommended and pre booked a table and whilst it's says they are dog friendly they did say they would prefer it if we did not bring dogs. ....Our table was booked for 8.30pm and after our group of 6 being shown ordered and receiving our food we were pretty much left alone, other than the room...

From start to finish the whole dining experience was top notch, thoughout the night we were served by a very competent & charming manager on duty called Sara, along with two of her colleagues Sue & Holly. Once our order was taken the wait for our food was minimal. The food we ate was of the highest standard, very tasty... More

Modern, contemporary and clean. Not what you would expect from a sea side establishment at Ravenglass. Service is good, food excellent and the staff are polite. The courtyard is nice to sit in with your dogs to relax and have a drink. They are happy for dogs and walkers to be inside, but when it's nice weather use the courtyard.... More

This was a good venue to meet up with extended family/friends. The food was good value pub grub and the barmaid certainly knew her stuff recommending a fabulous pint to go with my burger. From our experience, it seems the best place to eat in Ravenglass

We ate here twice during our stay at Muncaster castle and our grandchildren chose the same meal both nights which they thoroughly enjoyed. The grandparents also enjoyed theirs! Particularly liked the dark sweet pickled onions served with the cold meats and cheese- any chance of the recipe???

The Suite is a short walk along to the Inn on the front - which is accessed via the Bar The room was spacious and well kited out, lovely view from the sofa, for the sun set with a little bit...
