    We stayed over on Sunday night with friends (booked Cooper and Burkett) Both rooms were delightful and faced out over the church yard with gorgeous views across the south lakes ... simple, classic, comfortable and cosy. Food was some of the best we've had in...More

    Visited The Punchbowl after a great day's walking in the Lakes. The food was fantastic - so flavoursome, different and beautifully presented too. Good service from friendly, approachable staff and a lovely homely atmosphere.

    We had the chance for 24 hours away and booked here for a second time. Didn't disappoint! Lovely room - Hebblewhite. All the staff very friendly and attentive. Amazing food. Beautiful location and peaceful surroundings, If you want a treat this is the place!

    Fantastic food and venue. Had sirloin steak which was amazing. The lamb was also a popular choice. Very welcoming staff and fab location. Highly recommend. Not the cheapest place to eat but definitely worth it. Extensive wine list. Will definitely revisit.

    Tried to go on Sunday evening but turned away by staff who obviously looked down their nose at my husband and myself even though there was an empty table next to another couple who were perusing a menu. Will never return or recommend as there...More

    Yes, you can take dogs (on lead) into bar area and dine there (same menu). Dogs not allowed in hotel accommodation however.
