Our go-to place whenever family visit us. We opted for Sunday lunch and, as ever, we were delighted with the food and the service. We would highly recommend The Butchers Arms!

Just returned home after a gloriously sunny winter walk on Orton Scar, followed by a delicious late lunch at the Butchers Arms. The four of us opted for the Christmas dinner; we all agreed that it was superb & really good value - all the...usual ingredients & more, well cooked & delightfully presented on the plate. Service was friendly & pleasant too. The local cask ale was also excellent. Great way to end a lovely day. Strongly recommend the Butchers Arms.More

A family party of 17 enjoyed hospitality second to none. The staff were so friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and on a personal note I can honestly say, my steak was cooked to perfection. Would recommend this superb venue to anyone that likes...the a quality pub/restaurant venue.More

We visited the Butchers Arms this Sunday as a family (grandparents and toddler in tow) and was really impressed with both the Sunday Roast and the hospitality of the waitresses. Having lived all over the UK and sampling lots of Sunday Roasts, I can honestly...say that we have never had a better Sunday Roast and Sticky Toffee Pudding. The Sunday roast overall was well portioned, the beef moist and there was a great selection of seasonal veg (the swede mash was particularly great). On top of that the Sticky Toffee Pudding had a great creamy toffee sauce that was neither too sweet nor stodgy and the pudding definitely complimented the main course. Everyone else’s food in our party was well received and we will definitely be visiting again. The hospitality like elsewhere in Cumbria was second to none, you felt instantly part of the family once entering the premise.More

Amazing food! We stumbled upon this gem of a pub by accident and were extremely pleasantly surprised. We knew as soon as we walked in that the food was going to be incredible. The atmosphere was really cosy and the menu looked like it changed...regularly. Then the food arrived and it was exceptional. Could not rate this pub more highly! Just wish we lived a bit closerMore

So welcoming and friendly. A proper traditional pub with a great atmosphere and great food to match. Not to much choice on the menu which I think is good, as I think to much, and the standard isn’t always great! Nothing was to much trouble....Thankyou to all the staffMore
