Called in for couple of drinks and food with our two young children and dog, warm friendly welcome and was made to feel at home. Lovely staff, nothing was too much trouble, quick service and lovely home made food, recommend burgers! Great ale and selections of wines and spirits. If we stay in Cark again, we'd definitely revisit.

We were staying Cark for a long weekend, 8 of us aged 86 to 15. Had a few drinks in The Engine on Friday - very nice. We had booked a table for Saturday night, and it was excellent. The food was superb, not one complaint! Fish and chips is fairly spectacular in size and quality, as was the burger. Extremely friendly and accommodating waiter who added to the evening with his banter. Lovely well kept Timothy Taylor Landlord, along with a couple of other beers.
Everyone left happy, and we'll certainly be back.

Been to the Engine many times as we have a cottage nearby. The food is excellent, they have a great chef. Came twice in a few days as the food is much better than some of the Cartmel pubs and much cheaper. The beers are always excellent. Need to get a fire sorted in the snug room as it gets cold.

Great atmosphere on a cold evening. Had drinks and food ,and both excellent. Limited menu, but lovely freshly cooked fayre.
Haven't been for a while and the new landlord has brought the pub back to life. Will definitely be back soon .
