We went for Sunday lunch and were very pleased with both the food and the service. We had 3 small children with us who were also well catered for. We were surprised it was so quiet for a Sunday but I'm sure it won't stay that way for long. Stunning views too, just a shame it was raining!

4 of us went here for Sunday lunch and we were not disappointed. The Sunday roasts were a delight, my Lamb Henry was excellent and even the fussy one enjoyed his Scampi and Chips. It was quite busy but we never felt like we were being rushed. The staff were attentive without constantly asking 'if everything was alright' like some places we have been to. We will have to return in order for me to try one of the roast meals but I will have to use a lot of will power not to order the Lamb Henry again.

We spotted this on our way to Arnside and thought it would be a good location on the way back.
It is across the road from the waterside (when the tides in) and has a lovely outlook, the outside tables are great on a sunny evening, some of the traffic takes the corner a bit fast though, there is also a garden at the back for children to run about in. As it was sunday we had the roast with all the trimmings (actually 2 lamb cutlets each) from a selection available, it was perfectly cooked with a good selection of vegetables and potatoes. Staff/owner very friendly.

Have been on a number of with my friends and had a very pleasant time with a nice friendly landlady and her daughter.There was a good menu and we all had something different and it was all served warm and was really nice and tasty.They had a good selection of drinks you can sit outside if you are lucky it wont rain!!The views are wonderful and there is plenty of places to walk and see the incredible wildlife on the estuary.The egrets can been seen feeding along with herons and many other ducks and geese and further along you can walk along and see lots of birds and deer.A good friendly pub with good staff food and landlady who makes you feel welcome.

Called in hear recently having heard that it had changed hands, great setting looking up the lakes. Previous visit had been a disappointment but the new owners have really turned it around, it was buzzing on a Friday night with a live band on, despite being busy the service and food were good. Will definitely call back
