“Not as good as other pub grub in the area.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2011

We were staying in one of the apartments located at the back of this Inn (Langdale Estates timeshare) Although very atmospheric, we were not impressed with the food. It came within 20 minutes of ordering, which makes me think it was pre-cooked and not made to order and was tasteless. The outside areas provide plenty of seating with lovely views of the Langdales and is an excellent venue for a drink after a long exhausting hike over the mountains. It may be that we had made a poor choice as it was packed out most nights with people staying at the local camp site. I would recommend this for a drink, but not for an evening meal. Lunchtime could be a possibility, but as we did not eat here then, cannot comment.

“Great food and Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2011

After a long walk in the Langdale Valley we decided to have lunch at Wainwrights' Inn. It is a very cosy, traditional pub and we felt welcome as soon as we walked in. The landlady, Tina, is the perfect host! They serve a variety of real ales and pub grub. We had hot baquettes which were very reasonable priced and delicious. I would definetely recommend anyone to visit the pub. I believe it is owned by the Langdale Hotel and Timeshare down the road. Overall great service, lovely people, nice atmosphere and stunning location.
