The website tells one that Sunday evening closing is 10.30pm. We arrived at 8.05 on Sunday 8th and the place was closed and in semi-darkness. How disappointing that the management sees fit to shut up shop two and a half hours early in disregard of the information on their website. Perhaps they adopt a cavalier approach to advertised hours as... More

Unfortunately due to a fire in the kitchen, we had no food for the party. This was disappointing as we had booked months in advance, paid £30 pp for dinner, a quiz and a disco. They only gave us £10 back for no dinner and this was at their bar. Not enough by any means. We also could not bring... More

We visited the Stoneybeck Inn after a spa break at Whinfell Forest last weekend, it's just 15 minutes away and is in a handy location for the M6 and A66. On arrival there was ample parking and we were promptly shown up to our immaculate room. We stayed in the Helvellyn Room which is located at the front of the... More

My family and I ate at StoneyBeck for my fathers 60th birthday. All 8 of us were greeted by lovely friendly staff and looked after from beginning to the end. The restaurant was busy and a private function was happening in a room adjacent to the restaurant but neither of these reflected the service or food. The soufflé... that itself... More
