Situated in the centre of the beautiful medieval village of Cartmel, with great staff and a wonderful atmosphere. We visit every year and are never disappointed. Always a warm welcome.

Excellent food, great value. We had the garlic chicken skewers with coleslaw and chips. Best meal out we've had all week. Bar staff really friendly and helpful. Kids meal was exceptional. Meal for 6 adults and 1 child came to about £80.

Had dinner here one night, just as good as the Kings Arms next door. Always has a good choice available and seemed to be freshly cooked.
