After driving past many times we have stopped here twice recently for meals (lunch) and we are glad that we did .The food is piping hot and served quickly. The scampi or chicken in a bowl in a basket were lovely , and for larger appetites the steak and kidney pudding went down very well. In winter there is a... More

Stopped off here after a Sunday Drive in the lakes for some lunch. On arrival, plenty of tables available which allowed us to choose a cosy little table next to one of the many open fires. They offer a good value 3 course meal for under £20 which both me and my partner had. Soup was gorgeous to start, French... More

Sadly there is nothing we can do about it now, but I really hope you spoke to your server at the time and made us aware of the problem, we really hate to think that you left feeling like your meal was...

Called in here for dinner after a day's walking. Very welcoming staff. We had three courses and all were amazing. I can still remember the rice pudding now. If we lived nearer we'd be in for dinner regularly. Can't recommend enough.

After a walk round rydal, we wanted to grab a late lunch, so stopped in after finding it on trip advisor. It was a lovely place, and the bar staff were lovely. We ordered drinks at the bar after being welcomed in. Really good selection of drinks, even allowed a taste of the ales before drinking before choosing! The food... More

We recently stayed in this area and noticed this was a popular pub so we decided to give the food a try. We went out in torrential rain when we arrived the man behind the bar was really friendly and welcoming. We bought a drink and my husband asked for a menu. The only vegetarian dishes on the menu contained... More
