Absolute gem in the Lake District! The staff were friendly and helpful throughout the meal. The food was amazing! Child's portions were great and I'd recommend the trio of Cartmel game sausages to anyone!

Absolutely the best veggie burger I've had in a long time. It was a 'Bangkok Bad Boy' so it had thai spices in it. It came hot and crispy. The service was quick and the staff were friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend this place. The...More

My daughter is vegetarian and although there are not a lot of choices she said the lentil cottage pie was very tasty. They have a website which may have menus.
