Love it here. Great menu cooked perfectly. Good wine by the glass, lovely place, good service, good atmosphere. Perfect. We’ve eaten here before and you’re one of our favourite restaurants, when we’re up in the Lakes. Thank you. Yvonne and Don

From start to finish our stay was superb. The complimentary cream tea was a lovely touch and a great start to our stay. The service was fantastic throughout and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Lovely homely feel but with a touch of class.

We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The food, as always, was superb and the service was faultless. Thank you for making this very special celebration so memorable. The family came from South Africa, France and London, and will take back lovely memories of that day at The Punch Bowl.

Very accommodating particularly when we had a problem with the late arrival of guests. The staff offered flexibility around the booking time. Many thanks for that and the excellent service.

Roast potatoes where old and had a leather like texture, not crispy one bit. The beef was basically like the beef you'd get in a packet for sandwiches and was the the same texture. The positives where the starters and the deserts, shame the Sunday lunch was such a let down.
