Ate here on a Monday night as most places in the area do not serve food on a Monday night!!!!! Ordered seafood risotto and it was yummy!!! Piping hot with nice juicy prawns and salmon, etc. The food, service, location, environment were all brilliant. Cannot recommend enough. Thank you Fisherman's Arms. Will be back.

Decided to take my elderly parents out to see parts of the south west Cumbria coast. Had lunch at the Fishermans Arms and wasn't disappointed. The menu choice was excellent, catering for all tastes. It also had a daily specials choice for each course. The service was friendly and quick. Will be back.

We had been previously and everything was good but this time things went to pot starter took ages to arrive then we were left for nearly an hour before we asked where our meal was, the manager came across because we had a starter that is why it took along time to come out, what I think is that they...

Ulverston food isn't great with a general mentality of slap-it-on-and-pile-it-high basic fayre with an inflated price tag generally dominating the scene. It was therefore refreshing to dine (a few times now) at the Fishermans. Good, friendly and helpful service is coupled with an extensive menu. To be honest I have only eaten during happy hour where a starter and main... More

The family went for a homecoming meal, we all chose something different and were all pleasantly surprised. The service was second to none and the food terrific

This place is lovely. The food is always of excellent quality and it's nice to sit outside in the sun while the children play in the park.

Booked this to be handy for cartmel. Lovely room friendly host and great breakfast. Dinner looked good too but too busy to go and eat so will come back again. Give central lakes a miss for once and give this a try

We booked late and all hotels closer to the lakes were sold out or too expensive. This place is great and I liked the restaurant as it had several good vegetarian options. Our room was big and spotlessly clean. We had a nice bathroom and adjoining room too. . Excellent value for money. The owners were friendly. We visited the... More

Recently visited the restaurant a couple of times with my elderly parents. The choice of food was excellent as there was something for all palates. Their daily specials were very good and also providing smaller dishes was a god idea. It's location along the coast road is great for the sea views of Morecambe Bay.
