I recently dined at the Fisherman's Arms for Sunday Lunch. The restaurant environment was very pleasant. The menu was quite varied, and the food quality and presentation excellent. The visit was spoilt by the exorbitant price charged for a glass of quite ordinary wine (equivalent to over £20 per bottle. I certainly will not visit again. You have been warned!

Visiting a friend in Barrow and she took me here for lunch. It was mid week and there was only one other table occupied so very peaceful. Apparently it is never very busy which is a shame as we had a lovely lunch with smoked salmon caesar salad which came with a very good helping of the salmon. My friend had the roast pork ciabatta with lots of salad and coleslaw and she said it was very good.
Prices were reasonable for a lunch but some of the mains were a bit pricey.
All in all a nice place in the middle of beautiful countryside which I would be happy to revisit, and as it has en suite rooms available, handy for a weekend stay.
Some background music would have rounded it off nicely.

Whilst the menu seemed appetising, it seemed they were unable to handle the basics. 'Filleted' fish with bones, undercooked beans and undercooked (raw) mashed potatoes were only a few of the problems with the meal. Service was good, but the atmosphere was somewhat lacking.

Needless to say, we will not be going again. Filleting fish is not rocket science, and for £15-£20 for the main fish course, I expect a lot better.

The outside of this hotel doesn't represent the refurbished interior, which is clean, bright and welcoming. Our Mediterranean Fish Soup and Duck Balliotine were lovely and so different from the usual fare offered in hotels these days. The service was fine, the waitress very friendly and we will certainly revisit if we are ever in the area again.
