As my wife and I have not visited this place for a number of years and as we were in the area, we thought we would try it out again. It was quite early in the evening so not too many people about, except for a family on holiday. We were greeted by two pleasant young bar staff who gave us an option of either a nice garden room to eat in or a more secluded restaurant near the bar. The menu is extensive but not ridiculously so, plus a few daily 'specials'. I asked the young chap who greeted us what he liked, something I often do if I don't know the cuisine at a place. He recommended the Steak & Ale pie, which we both plumped for; plus a bottle of Chilean Merlot. The food came with home made chips and three fresh vegetables and was delicious. All meat, fish and veg is locally sourced too, which sit's well with me being Cumbrian and proud of our local produce. I will certainly eat here again in the future when in the area.

We ate in the restaurant on both nights whilst staying at the hotel.The menu has a wide choice and our selections were excellent, very tasty reasonably sized portions nicely presented. The staff were all lovely, helpful and friendly. As with the hotel we will certainly go again.

We are visiting the Lakes with our family and tonight dined at the excellent Rusland Pool Hotel. From the welcoming blackboard outside the restaurant, through the excellent, warm and genuinely friendly service and atmosphere this was a really excellent restaurant run by Mike and Rachel. The food was excellent and there was something for everyone on the menu. Mike and Rachel were very friendly and concerned about their patrons. Having taken our family (2 adults and 4 children) to many establishments - his rates amongst the best.

We called in on the spur of the moment for Sunday lunch. We arrived very early so were able to sit in the conservatory area. Staff very attentive and friendly. We both had fish and chips which was delicious, food was hot and portions generous. Prices very reasonable too. Very enjoyable first visit and will go back with other family members.

Staff were attentive without being annoying. The menu was extensive with several vegetarian options.
Portions were a good size without being out facing.
The only disappointments were that vinegar came in a sachet and the coffee was weak.
We went to this restaurant several years ago and were left unimpressed but after this visit I would happily go again.
