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.
Excellent food - definitely worth a visit.
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
we travel around our local area dining out on a regular basis , the service and food we received was excellent , it is one of the most expensive "pubs" we have been to . (sadly no one thought it might be nice to say goodbye)
Excellent food, good atmosphere. Pub-come fine dining. Very impressed.
Fabulous food with great service.
Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch. Excellent service and delicious food and well kept beers. Been to the Punchbowl many times and will continue to do so.
Dined at several Michelin star restaurants and the food definitely competes , the quality of the produce, the flavours and presentation were all up there with the best . Excellent value for money , friendly staff , nothing pretentious about this friendly country pub , definitely recommend if you enjoy good food at sensible prices .
A great experience. Super value for the level of experience.
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.
Excellent quality food!
Excellent service and helpful staff. Delicious food. Relaxing ambience. We will come again.
Excellent meal in very pleasant surroundings
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.
Love this place so much 😊
Lovely food and great atmosphere...perfect lunch on a cold autumn day ....welcoming fire and warm, friendly staff willing to help in any way
Very disappointed at 2.30 no Sunday roast can you possible request one for future bookings as this was all I want on a Sunday
We would all like to say thank you to the staff at the Punch Bowl Inn for the exceptional personal service and excellent lunch served to celebrate my father's birthday last week.
Lovely staff and comfortable room, high quality food and service
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.
Nine of us for our daughters birthday meal, staff, service and food were all excellent. We are still talking about the beautiful food we had .. venison was perfect and we will be back again to saviour everything. Staff also were really attentive and helpful. Thank you for a fantastic meal.
Food fantastic x
Been wanting to dine with yourself’s for a while now we where not disappointed thank you so much can’t wait to return
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.
Excellent Sunday lunch super food, brilliant choice and great value for money. We will return and hopefully stay next time. Thank you so much.
