About Punch Bowl Inn at Crosthwaite
The Punch Bowl has built a reputation based on good quality food, fine wines and attentive, friendly service whilst still retaining the homely English pub feel. In the kitchen we pride ourselves on preparing fresh, locally sourced food and presenting it in an honest but exciting fashion. The menu is based on a mixture of classic British and French flavour combinations using modern techniques and is updated regularly to meet seasonal availability.
If you are looking to bring a four legged friend with you we only have certain tables available for them, please call on 015395 68237 to reserve one of our dog friendly tables.
Lovely meal very high quality
Fantastic evening for our wedding anniversary. We had Chateaubrand on recommendation which although a tad expensive was delicious.
Great little restaurant. Lovely staff. Good food. Well worth a visit.
First class once again, travelled from the highlands of Scotland to enjoy this very special place.
Very pleasant evening with excellent friendly service
We seem to come to the Punch Bowl for most of our family events, anniversaries and birthdays. We always have a lovely experience and the food never disappoints. Thank you Richard for the generous gift of bubbles. See you all soon hopefully. Corinne Chris Josh Harri and friends.
We always make a point of visiting on our many trips to The Lakes. We have never not enjoyed a meal here. The rooms are great too.
Beautifully cooked food - the flavours of each course were delicious - dreaming of the raspberry soufflé! Wonderful team who were very welcoming - lovely relaxed atmosphere, located in beautiful countryside. Couldn’t ask for more! Thank you!
Food brilliant we will be back soon.
We have eaten here many times. On the most recent occasion, we felt that the prices had increased. We also noted that on many dishes, sides were extra. The atmosphere and service are always very good, however we felt that the meal we had was overpriced compared to previous visits, with the food not always matching the ambitious prices. We left feeling we had had an average meal in a nice location rather than a great experience.
Really excellent food, and great service
We were a party of 6 with 1 vegetarian. The entire evening was worth the 40 minute drive and we would all definitely return. Speaking as the only vegetarian on the table though, I would have preferred a little more choice of meat free.
Amazing food, service and surroundings - we’ll be back
10/10 for quality and service - food out of this world - cheese soufflé amazing!! Thanks
The welcome from the Adam is always excellent. Raspberry soufflé is to die for.
In many visits over the past 25 years and through all the changes made we have invariably enjoyed the Punchbowl. We can now say that our current experiences are as good as ever. I
Exceptional flavourful food and exquisite service - at affordable cost.
Excellent services, knowledgeable and friendly staff.
An no complimentary bread and oil anymore, always disappointing.
Excellent standard of food and presentation. Slick and professional service.
Had a great meal as always - the food, wine and service were excellent!
Always a wonderful food experience, excellent service,a friendly, relaxing and convivial atmosphere.
The meal was for our wedding breakfast. The service was warm and friendly - food amazing. I know the weather can't be controlled but it was perfect too. Over all outstanding.
