Tasty home-cooked traditional dishes, served by friendly staff, with a great selection of beer, makes this the place to eat-out in the Millom area.

Having read the reviews for the Punch Bowl, it might be easy to think that the rating is "too good to be true" and that, perhaps, the Landlords have written the majority of reviews themselves. HOWEVER, you'd be very wrong! This pub is spotless with...More

Description
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.
