I found the decor a bit sparse and not fitting of the pub. The food was great and service attentive though. Responsibly priced and good location.

Great atmosphere, tasty food and fun pub games. The staff and customers were all super lovely and there were a couple of decent vegetarian options for us too. Fabulous!

Dropped in on off chance, staff were lovely & squeezed us in even though fully booked. Meals were superbly homemade & excellent value. Would recommend as the place to go when in the area.

Thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful meal here, sat in the beer garden on a lovely day. The service couldn’t be faulted in the slightest and it was great surprise to see a vegan option on the menu, particularly for a pub in West Cumbria. I couldn’t...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.
