Had a really lovely evening here on a recent trip back to Cockermouth a place we love. Have always enjoyed our visits to The Trout, but this night was especially memorable. Staff were very attentive and friendly and didn't complain at all about us staying WAY beyond all other diners!! The food was lovely and there was a good wine... More

Sunday lunch was finished and evening specials not yet available but we were told this when booking. Sufficient variety of choice for the 9 of us and the service as ever was excellent.

Service was good, however food wasn't so good. Meals tasted and looked like they had been warmed up in the microwave. Very disappointed, especially for the price - just glad we didn't have to pay for it as we'd been given some vouchers to use.

Another brilliant meal with friends along with amazing atmosphere. There has been a change in the menu with some even more tasty things to try. Great to see these guys are up with the trend and read the reviews. Still think this place the best in the area with the best staff. All good

We ate our Sunday lunch in the terrace bistro part of The Trout. The staff were helpful and delivered a great service to match the food. The potions were very generous with a huge Yorkshire pudding accompanying the roast beef. I'd definitely recommend it for lunch. And there are small pudding options to accompany coffee if you're tempted but can't... More

Love this place and all the staff. Great service and very well cooked food. Always a loverly atmosphere and great wine to help. The only small - and it is small thing for me would be a change of menu more often would be appreciated, but then we do eat here most weeks. Great effort - must be time for... More

Found the menu to be lacking, struggled to pick something so ended up with fish and chips which were lovely but would have preferred something else. One of our party had the green thai prawn curry which was seriously lacking in prawns and overloaded with onions+++, the boiled rice was just like the packs of well known 'cook in the... More

I'm a regular here but was disappointed on my last visit to see the menu had changed but still offered very little choice. Compared to what it used to offer (more than enough!) it is very limited. I'm not a fussy eater but struggled to pick something due to lack of choice. Ended up with a special - chicken and... More
