“Pub Lunch”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Traditional lakeland pub centre of town with fire. Had soup and sandwiches which were very good for the price paid. If you want modern, plastic etc this place is not for you!

“Nice pub, awful food”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Giving another bad review of this is like ‘kicking someone when they are down’ but it is a decent traditional pub that should not attempt to serve food. They really have no idea.

The ‘kitchen’ which was open to view from our seat had 2 deep fat fryers and a bank of at least 4 microwaves.

As you can expect, steak pie (and there should be a law against microwaving pastry) was hot, but with part soft doughy and part dry and tough pastry. The roll of pastry around the edges was about 1” thick. The meat, beef I think, was dry and tough. Vegetables were overcooked (over microwaved?) and dried out.

Scampi was whole tail, but not special. Accompanied by ok chips and microwaved peas.
Gammon (no eggs, sorry the kitchen does not have any) would have come with pineapple, but they had run out!

Oh, I nearly forgot, “you won’t be able to sit there all night as we will be setting up the dartboard” As I said, a good traditional pub!

“DONT EAT HERE”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We tried a traditional roast beef Sunday lunch on Nov 3rd. During our long wait (over 40 minutes) we saw someone next to us sawing away at his plate trying to cut some meat. When eventually our meals arrived they looked like a school dinner and lacked any presentation, and yes our meat was tough and we gave up trying to cut and eat it. I complained and the girl lowered her head and mumbled an apology and did not return.
Sorry Lake Road Inn but its the worst meal I have ever had, and the first review I have felt the need to do. Get your act together with the food, as you are in a fine location and the pub itself is cosy and welcoming, you should not be suffering all these negative reviews.
