I absolutely love the menu here. We have dined in several times as well as visited often for drinks. The staff are always very attentive, quick and friendly. It can be quite crowded in the bar and outside seating area on the weekend.

My only difficulty with enjoying this location fully is their overwhelming flower obsession. On an average day they will have 4 large vases full of stargazer lilies (a very potent and fragrant flower). As I am allergic to them, I have to call in advance for a table as far away from them as possible or I will get a migraine and won't be able to taste my food. Perhaps one arrangement in the entry with some other flowers would look just as posh and irritate patrons senses less.

Interior is very cosy and pub-like with a lot of effort put into the furnishings. The service was terrific although it was relatively quiet at that time so it was hard to gauge what it'd be like when busy.

The food itself was nice and didn't have to wait too long. I had gammon steak. The portions are large (always a good thing) with the quality of food being slightly better than modern "pub grub".

I would probably pop back into the farmers arms if I were to be back down in the area

Had lunch here near a roaring open fire. Large portions of good, wholesome food. Staff were helpful and the prices reasonable. Worth a visit.

We ate here our first night staying in Ulverston after a recommendation.

It really didnt disappoint. I had a steak cooked medium rare, it came exactly as it should be and was a good quality meat.

Service was excellent.

The atmosphere and feel of this place is very good. If you're visiting Ulverston you will struggle to find better.
