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.
Fab food and beer with great service.
The dishes we enjoyed were of good quality, albeit with a price tag which only allows for moderate value for money. My party were not particularly impressed with being sat at a wonky table in the bar area (the wonky aspect was the worst), and we were also disappointed the roast dinner was not available, despite featuring on the specials board and in a menu insert. Being a mixed British-Japanese group, we did not want to cause a fuss by pointing this out, but it might be useful for you to know. Again, the food was enjoyable, particularly the well-presented cod and the range of deserts - the lemon tart and the mascarpone were definite highlights. Overall a three-star experience.
Excellent again. Simply always is. “Pub food” simply doesn’t get better. Staff know their stuff and have great attitude. Looked after our baby / toddler as though they were full meal paying guest. Always a great start or end to a lakes weekend.
Consistently good food and service in great location.
ALL IN ALL A VERY PLEASANT EXPERIENCE
Excellent food and great service, lovely pub in beautiful country side
Excellent as usual! Service attentive and efficient, food delicious (the roasted honey vegatables with goats cheese was delicious and beautiful presentation, the raspberry soufflé just perfect). This is our favourite place when visiting the Lakes at least 3 times year. Thank you to a well polished team!
Superb The staff were truly wonderful
We live locally and a fantastic meal on Saturday. We were warmly welcomed by Adam and looked after by the lovely girl recently returned from Portugal. The food was delicious and we'll certainly return.
Fantastic food Excellent service Will definitely visit again
Lovely place in a great location. Room was beautiful, bed really comfortable and staff helpful and friendly. We had a great stay, thanks.
Excellent as always. Remarkable how you manage to keep up the standards year after year,
Delicious food, lovely relaxed atmosphere, very welcoming staff. A nice treat whilst on holiday in the Lake District.
One of the best roast dinners I've ever had... and I've eaten a lot in my time. Highly recommended and will definitely come back. Thanks!

Had a great time. The overriding quality I value is consistency.
Incredible food and excelllent service
Very nice place where the decor in the bedrooms is in need of refurbishment. The food is very over priced for what we regard as just ok, although the breakfasts are a good standard we would not eat there again on an evening.The staff are friendly and very helpful
Lovely meal as usual. 10/10
The food was splendid and the service was warm, friendly and highly professional. An excellent evening. Thank you.
Lovely hotel with beautiful rooms. Food is good although the menu is rather limited and doesn’t seem to change. Definitely worth a visit and we will be back
Thank you for moving us to the bar area . A lovely meal, super atmosphere. Not especially cheap but first class quality. Always a treat to come here.
A wonderful meal - everything was amazing but especially the cheese souffle.
