Many thanks as ever to Kath, Nick and the Team for a great preamble to Christmas. Delicious chicken schnitzel and mushroom linguine to eat, great pub atmosphere: just what a local should be.

Typically country pub with great hearty food. Staff were friendly and brilliant with two weary ramblers who have food allergies - even the chef popped out to explain what was in the desserts. Perfect for a hearty meal after a days walking in the lakes

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.
