Middle Ruddings is a great pub attached to a hotel. The staff was very friendly and we had the best lamb roast ever..

“recommended!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

had a lovely meal here, would definitely go back. Had to change table before our food was brought as they had a large party arriving and were given a 10% discount on the meal in recompense, you couldn't ask for more!

“The staff is your best asset in the hotel trade”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

This review is on the bar and restaurant only, but I am thinking about taking the wife up for a weekend stay here.

Four of us was using our OAP bus passes for a evening out from Keswick. Brithwaite is a short 10 minute bus ride from Keswick bus station and the bus will stop right outside the pub if asked. The buses we used (X4) allows you a 2 hour stay at this Inn/restaurant so it's very handy for a break away from the packed and maybe overrated pubs and restaurants in Keswick. Being a little sad we never go anywhere without the Good Beer Guard and it was a toss up from 2 pubs in Brithwaite. A young lady who was on the bus told us that we should give the Middle Ruddings a try. She was on a winner with her smile and bubbly manor and she also told us that she would see us right to the door. We followed her into the Inn and before we could get to the bar she had her coat off and with a wash of the hands she was stood behind the bar asking what we wanted to drink, all this with a heart melting smile.

We all enjoyed our meals at this Inn and all the staff where friendly, it was voted the best place we had visited in our 3 day stay in the lakes. So if you want a nice quite meal at a price that will not break the bank and good drinkable ale all served with a smile, then do give this Inn/Restaurant a go.

And the young lady on the bus.... she was the managers sons fiance and what a lucky chap he is.
