“We love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

We keep coming back time after time. We come with our dogs and everyone is so friendly. There is always good choices on the menu - we have spoken to the chef a couple of times and he's really nice. They do a good pint (according to hubby) and a good glass of wine.

“An oasis of warmth and hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

On our way to visit NT Sizergh Castle we stopped for refreshment at this Inn. It is named after the family who occupied the nearby stately home for centuries. We were most agreeably surprised at the very friendly welcome, the excellent and prompt service and high quality of refreshments on a good range of dishes on the menu. We also appreciated the range of tipples on offer at the bar. We thoroughly endorse the other recent reviews, and really cannot add to what they say. Without hesitation we would eat there again if in the area and regard it as a most happy discovery..

“GREAT PUB FOR LUNCH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

This pub, sited near the entrance to Sizergh Castle, has been consistently good over a number of years. The staff are welcoming and helpful, the beer selection varies and the excellent pub food is served in generous quantities. Always a good choice when we are in the area. This time the visit rewarded us after a good walk along local footpaths and through the Sizergh estate.

“Perfect meeting point en route for Cartmel Races”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

The meeting point for the bank holiday weekend, so we'd pre booked a table for 4 adults, three children. The place was nicely packed with folk.

Firstly credit must go for a beautifully kept range of bitters behind the bar and a nice wine list.

Food.... portions,,,outrageously generous, but seriously good.
Mine... game casserole with dates in red wine with crusty bread. Huge pot stuffed with various game meat and this fab sauce that you mopped up with the bread. Think Homer Simpson drooling
Wifey... Sunday roast chicken. She declared this the finest chicken dinner she had ever had, and. on prising a bit of the chicken off her, I could taste why she made that claim.
Darling eight year old daughter...smoked haddock risotto. creamy and simply delicious.
Desserts followed of Vanilla creme brulee with home made shortbread, ice cream, and a terrific sticky toffee pudding to die for.

Our friends also raved about their choices, which included a great goats cheese vegetarian dish. Given the amount of customers present, the service was really quick, with nothing being too much trouble. Perfect start to the weekend really.

Bill? £20 per head which included around of drinks at the table. Did I mention the bitter was fantastic? :)

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

This is a great country pub serving large portions of the most excellent food. The Chicken and Bacon Salad in particular is superb and a particular favourite of mine. Despite it not always being on the menu, the cheerful and helpful staff are always happy to make one. That's service!
The Strickland Arms is almost always busy- testament to its popularity locally. Wonderful food and drink, with a great relaxed atmosphere...
