First visit to this place and I can guarantee it wont be the last. Enjoyed a roast beef sunday lunch, generous portions, so tasty. All the staff that we met were happy and helpful. No complaints from me!

Now, we are regular visitors to Cartmel, and yes, a couple of years ago it might have lost its way a little, but, OMG its back. We had the steak pie, rich, moist, plentiful and very, very tender, the shortcrust pastry was crisp but perfect, the gravy was simply outstanding. It was served with braised red cabbage and hand cut... More

First impression was good with an atmospheric and rustic feeling interior! As an ale drinker I was a little disappointed by the choice, not being a big fan of Theakstons.

The evening meal was delicious with very generous portions, including an excellent cheese platter, and they have an extensive range of gins in the bar. Would definitely... More

We ate in the cosy, candle lit restaurant (which is steeped in history) one lunchtime and the following evening. Food was fabulous. Very tasty and my boyfriend and I couldn't fault any of it. We had breakfast over the two days we stayed too and it was simply delicious with all food locally sourced. Fairly priced menu for the standard... More

Had dinner there one night. Above expectation. Starters showed some invention. Mains not greatly varied, but what was served was yummy, AND a chef who knows how to cook vegetables. Nice pud. Good food, good service, good price.
