My husband and I came for a meal last night and again the food was great. Lovely welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. Staff very friendly and efficient. Amazing window views from the restaurant. We come here at least once a week. Highly recommend.

We went in on a Sunday afternoon for dinner with 3 children and were warmly welcomed. The food was very good and we can definitely recommend the roast beef and the children all ate their meals without any complaints!

A great spot just off the very busy Penrith/Keswick road. We had a delicious meal here....Boeuf Bourgignon and Vegetable Moussaka. Reasonably priced. Staff helpful and all dog friendly.

Stopped here for lunch while doing the C2C it's right on the route and apparently has amazing views (was a very wet day so no views for us!) staff were very friendly and helpful and our meals were all good would definitely recommend.

Maybe it's a changing menu. I've only been there once myself. The menu is varied and the food is well cooked. Maybe they change the menu regularly. Maybe they just decided not to publish it. Or maybe the cost of updating... More
