Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Went here for a nice quiet meal two weeks ago.i had the steak burger, omg was huge and absolutely gorgeous. Boyfriend had the steak and it just melted in his mouth. Hand made chips were fantastic. Have to say all was presented perfectly. Staff were friendly and polite. Will be back for definite.

“Nothing memorable.”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

The vegetarian dishes on offer are dull . Quiche and risotto . When will someone come up with an inspiring dish ! The cavery veggies were ok and I understand that the meat was 'nice' . At £10.95 I felt a bit miffed to be honest . Nice enough pub , pleasant enough staff but distinctly average .

Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to write a review about us on trip advisor as al comments are appreciated and actioned here at the Stoneybeck Inn. I was dissapointed to read that everything was positive about the Stoneybeck Inn excluding the vegetarian options and for that you only rated us 3 out of 5 for your star rating.

My colleague who looked after you has advised me that you were offered a minimum of 3-4 vegetarian options and once you received your chosen meal you were asked if everything was ok, and you acknowledged that you were very pleased so again i am extremely cautious in regards to your comments. That being said I have passed on your notes to the head chef regarding the limited and uninteresting vegetarian options and im more than confident he will be able to source some new and exciting vegetarian options in our forthcoming menus.

Once again thank you for taking the time to write a review about us on trip advisor and hopefully we will see you again in the future for you to try our new dishes out. Best wishes, Stoneybeck Inn team

“Lovely Meal”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

Have just had a fantastic meal at the Stoneybeck Inn. The place is decorated to a high standard and the food was absolutely beautiful. David was very friendly and attentive and we will definitely be going back. It has made our stay in the Lake District even more enjoyable.

“Food Not So Great...”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We popped by here for lunch on a Sunday after seeing great reviews of it online. The staff were quite friendly and service quick to get our drinks. We opted for the carvery and while it smelt nice, it didn't taste quite so great. We'd arrived when it was very quiet before the rush, and a lot of the food tasted like it had been sat around for too long (very evident through the taste of the potatoes); the Yorkshire puddings were cold and a little chewy, some of the veg a little hard too (carrots very much so), the meat had a lot of fat on, and the potatoes just tasted like they'd been cooked hours earlier (and had been reheated; might not be the case, but tasted like that). Nothing was steaming hot either, and for £10.95 a head we just left feeling like we'd wasted our money. Impressed with the layout of the restaurant itself, but it was lacking a little atmosphere and was far too quiet. And is it a pub, a restaurant, or a bar?! It looks like it can't decide what it is. Would have loved to have made this a local having recently moved to the area, but it won't be sadly. Perhaps the food on the main menu outside of the carvery is better.

Thank you for your comments and we are sorry that you feel that the carvery experience was not upto scratch and I have communicated your views to the kitchen team. We have only ever received very little negative feedback regarding our popular Sunday carvery, and we hope you will visit us again and that your next experience will be much more enjoyable. Kind regards, the Stoneybeck Inn team
