Reviewed May 20, 2013

Great weekend has just been had with very good food and fantastic staff in this very friendly Inn.Would recommend the inn and if you need to take the family dog along this is the place to go.Nothing that we wanted or needed was to much trouble for the staff and they smiled all the time.So thank you the manager and all the staff for making us feel so welcome and at home will be back very shortly.

“Excellent, friendly service”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Thanks for a wonderful weekend. All the staff were friendly and helpful at all times, and the meals were excellent (and also reasonably priced!). The location of the Inn was also ideal, and dog-friendly too. We'll definitely be returning soon.

Thanks again for a great weekend!

“Fantastic hospitality, lovely old building and great food.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Our stay at the gateway was a really great experience with a menu of wonderful food in an atmosphere of relaxed and friendly service. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and manager and we will definatley be returning soon. Walkers and dogs are welcome by the real fire and dogs are allowed to stay in the rooms, a really brilliant experience that I would reccommend to anyone.

“Dog Friendly, Service and Food”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We stayed in a Travelodge, nr Kendal, the night before a wedding in Windermere, (Broadlands Hotel, Windermere Not on Trip Advisor). We could not find a suitable pub in Kendal, and not much going on (Sunday), but on our return to the Travelodge, we came a cross the Gateway Inn, we went in to ask they accept dogs and they did asked if needed to book, but said no should be ok, but we did book, really friendly and asked if at the Travelodge, as no breakfast facilities, they advised we could book breakfast at the pub which was only 3/4 miles from the Travelodge, and on our way to the Wedding the next day in Windermere.

The pub was very relaxed, offered a dog blanket and mat for my dog, the food was excellent and really pleased we came across the pub. Go here if in Kendal and avoid the town.

We also stopped at the Mill Brewery on the way to the Wedding which was also very Dog friendly, we had a sandwhich, as wedding not until 14.00hrs and had to leave the travelodge at 12.00 dressed up and no where to go until then. Service very good and friendly as well, this pub was on the way to Windermere, not sure if in a village, have to multi map it.

“So welcoming”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Me and the family stopped off here late afternoon on bank holiday Monday. I have passed this restaurant on an almost daily basis for several years and always fancied popping in - finally got the chance! And so pleased I did! The staff were very welcoming and the menu was mouthwatering. The children's menu was a bit dull and our 7-year-old much preferred tasting the adult meals, leaving her pasta to one side. Our 10-year-old ate from the adult menu and was in bbq chicken heaven. We sat in the gardens in the sun. The only downside is it's not local to us in Ulverston! Will definitely return.
