Called in on a drive circular drive from Haverigg. We only fancied soup and a sandwich but when we saw a roast dinner being served to another table we changed our minds. 3 of us had roast lamb dinner, with plenty of veg, mash, roast potatoes and plenty of gravy. We ate every scrap - just delicious! Would recommend!!

We came here for lunch on a Saturday, as we were passing, and we will definitely be coming back. For all the Steak and Ale pies I've had this place was the best. It did leave me in a food comma for a good chunk of the afternoon but so worth it! My other halfs salt and pepper chicken burger... More

Return visit to a place I really enjoyed on our first trip. We arrived on a Saturday night not booked in as its still winter and we thought it would be quiet. On arrival to the car park we found it to be quite full and started to think we would struggle to get a table. We enquired at the... More

Booked a break on a voucher and, having not toured the lakes before, we didn't mind how good the inn was. We needn't have worried, we were made very welcome and the room and food were superb. Would definitely recommend

Lovely pub with lovely people. After an 8 hour drive (and a lot of traffic) we just wanted to relax and enjoy some nice food. This is exactly what we got at the Bower House. The staff were great, the customers were great, they're dog-friendly and the food was lovely...what more could you ask for. The chocolate brownie is to... More

I am not one to gush or fawn over restaurants, but I honestly believe I have just had the best Sunday Lunch I have ever eaten anywhere, anytime. The beef was perfect. The chef and staff need to be highly commended. The room was warm and comfortable, the log fire was burning, staff very welcoming, I was only surprised I... More
