About
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

Thanks to the warm and welcoming team, who were really friendly and served us wonderful food with a smile and a story. We loved the pub and will come back next time we come to ride at the Heavy Horse centre around the corner!

Were staying locally and had dinner here one night (be careful, as they don't serve food every evening) which was very nice. Unusual selection of dishes on the menu, which I get the impression they change each evening. Had Thai Curry and Cassoulet, so not...More

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

The nearest pub to our house. Good food, big portions. Beer is up to snuff and the management are bearable! Will do for us.

We were a bit concerned as this restaurant only does food a few nights a week. We also have certain dietary requirements. But Nick the owner was very welcoming and hospitable. He made us very welcome. Food was great and we all really enjoyed it.
