Thanks for your lovely review. You're right, we do change the menu a lot (although there's always gammon and steak available), it keeps it fresh for the customers and for us in the kitchen. Hope we'll see you again sometime!

Yes this my local pub, but from my 1st ever visit to the village this little pub made me and my husband feel welcome. A true testament to the owners Nick and Kath. Fab food, that always leads to a great night. An amazing place...More

A warm and welcoming real ale pub, wine and cafe bar in a beautiful part of the southwest Lakes. The Punch Bowl is a laid-back, country Inn in the best traditions and we'll always try to accommodate our customers wishes...if you want something...there's no harm in asking! We serve meals on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings and our food is all made on the premises, covering a wide range of styles on our constantly changing menu. We take bookings for parties of all kinds and can open outside normal hours for private gatherings. The pub is the tap for Beckstone's Brewery and their award-winning beers and we also stock a selection of other local beers as well as some great favourites. Wine drinkers will not be disappointed by our list.
