We have just returned from a two night stay at the Punchbowl. It was our first trip to the Lakes and certainly will not be our last. We were welcomed by Cris who couldn't do enough for us. Our room was lovely, great comfy bed & fluffy towels. We booked a table to dine at 6pm as it did get booked up quickly. The food was superb, the service was Excellent & the breakfast it is one of the best we have had. We would recommend the Pub to all our friends & family & will definitely stay there again. Thank you to David & all the staff.

The Punch Bowl was the nearest pub to where we were staying within walking distance. We set off on our 20 minute walk which turned out to be 45 minutes so by the time we arrived we were extremely hot and ready for our tea. There was a marquee up outside the pub so we decided to sit in it to keep the sun off us and the dog. There was a reasonable amount of choice on the menu, I chose pâté to start and my husband had a battered king prawn starter, for main we had steak, ale and mushroom pie with chips and veg and an 8oz Sirloin Steak with chips and salad and we had a side order of onion rings and 2 Magners to wash it down with. The pâté was homemade and very tasty, the salad was fresh and crunchy. My husbands steak was cooked perfectly which made it juicy and tender, the homemade pie came with a huge puff pastry top, lots of steak and mushrooms and was extremely tasty. The bill came to £47.70. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

This is a popular pub just outside Kendal on the A65, close to Oxenholme Station. It has a large car park and features a variety of beers, a roaring fire and as part of the attached bar a pool table and tv.

The food is pub style with some interesting twists. The starter of chipolata suasges - 8 sausages of 4 different varieties served with a lovely dressed salad was delicious. A variety of roasts were available with pies including steak and black pudding. Also available were a pair of local flounders simply cooked.

Busy on Sunday lunch-time, fairly quiet on week-day evenings.

We paid two visits which is commendation enough.
