Having walked in The Langdales Wainwrights is the perfect place for food. We love their Sunday Lunch, which is served all day and cost an incredible 9.95! What's more they give you plenty of vegetables which we love. The pub is a relaxing place with happy bar staff. We live in Cumbria so are lucky to be able to visit... More

Went for dinner. Staff were polite, food was good not much else to say. I'd go again if the situation presented itself.

Great pub which is part of the Langdale hotels and lodges. Food is traditional pub grub, with plenty of it cooked well. Good selection of real ales too and a quiz on Tuesday evening. Areas to sit outside in good weather to admire the lovely views.

We came here after a lovely walk around Grasmere and Loughrigg Fell. Very good Sunday toast and we felt good value for money. Definitely will return!

This is my friends favourite pub and I can see why. Good cozy atmosphere (open fire) friendly staff, dog friendly, excellent food, good portion sizes- perfect for the hungry walker. I tried the lamb main course and it was delicious. We were mid walk and stayed longer than we intended but we were full and chilled!

Visited Wainwrights whilst staying at the Langdale hotel and really enjoyed it. We went on a Friday night about 8pm without a reservation - it was busy but we still managed to find a table. Lots of locals which I think is always a good sign. Service at the bar was quick and friendly - my other half had a... More

This is a very cosy stopping off point either mid or post walk. A blazing log fire is essential on any list of cosy necessities and Wainwrights has a huge one that heats the whole place. We met up with friends for a evening meal and we enjoyed great choices from both the menu and the specials board. The haggis... More

This pub has a Cask Marque and always serves a good pint - usually six or seven real ales on hand pumps. Although it looks like an independent pub it is in fact part of the large adjacent Langdale Estate. The food is good pub grub and reasonably priced for the area. You have to find a table before you... More
