Wow, what a fantastic day. Nick pulled out all the stops to provide a superb spread; cold meats cooked to perfection, roast potatoes, pasta, salad, quiche and a cheese board that would have fed an army! A warm, friendly atmosphere as usual with great beer,...More

Thank you! Since this visit we've done a bit more work on our outside area and added Saturday nights to our food service...and an additional dog bowl! :)

We often take visiting family and friends for a meal as the food is always exceptional and great value. The puddings are marvellous. Service is great and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. Highly recommended.

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.
