Have been visiting the lakes for 18 years and lake road inn has always been a favourite and usually our first night haunt. Something has changed with the menu for the worse and we cannot see us visiting again this year. Big stodgy pizza and a beef pie which was of chip shop quality. Sorry!

Like the previous reviewer I went for the 'Steak & Ale Pie', the pie itself looked great when it arrived at the table and that's when it all started to go down hill. When I cut into the pie I found two pieces of meat, seven little onions and the rest was thick gravy. The first piece of meat that I tried was so chewy I had to spit it out and the second piece was just a lump of gristle, even the so called roasted vegetables that accompanied the pie weren't cooked through, there was no way that I was going to eat this meal so I asked for someone from the kitchen to come and examine the pie, when the chef/cook came out he said that they buy the pies in and offered me another one, but I declined and opted for a pizza instead, then when it arrived I found out that it was a "Stuffed Crust - Chicago Town Pizza' identical to the ones that you can buy from your local supermarket for £2. I personally believe that the majority of food served in this establishment comes straight out of the freezer as I only found one meal on the menu that stated that it was 'Home Made'. We will definitely not cross their door again in the future and I would would strongly recommend other diners not to eat there.

I never give reviews but make an exception for this place. Steak and ale pie... inedible. Worst meal I have ever had. Pie contained 3 tiny pieces of meat, one of which was just gristle, flecks of mushroom and awash with gravy, oven chips and sparse veg. I shall not be returning
