About The Brown Horse Inn
The Brown Horse Inn offers the cosy ambience of a rustic country inn, featuring beautiful beams, real fires and friendly waiting staff.
Our sophisticated menu has a contemporary take on traditional local fare, with the majority of the meats and vegetables reared and grown on the Brown Horse Estate. Anything that is not direct from The Brown Horse Estate is sourced locally.
We also offer an extensive collection of wines, hand-pulled, Home Brewed, and Traditional Ales and a vast Gin menu.
Our restaurant can seat up to 40 guests with table sizes varying from 2 persons up to 12 persons, however, we can cater for larger parties when booked in advance.
Adjacent to the Restaurant is the traditional country bar which offers a lovely relaxed atmosphere, serving exactly the same menu as the restaurant. The bar can seat up to 30 guest with table sizes varying from 2 persons up to 8 persons.
Great staff great food
We had a lovely meal at the Brown Horse. Super friendly staff, prompt service and delicious food Thank you very much! Helen, family and Dogs.
Gtreat surroundings, lovely proper pub. Good selection of drinks. Food was great, no frills Sunday lunch, but was ample proportions, large, and of really good quality, great normal pub food. Would recommend to everyone, just go try it, and it's very good value for money. In fact less expensive than most lake district hot spot pubs. Service was great, they even had to deal with an old guy complaining that one of his group ate the wrong meal, so tried to blag it for free, all for sake of a tenner, yet they trat him calmly and with great dignity, even though he was an a-hole.
Absolutely fantastic service and the most fabulous food. Thank you so much for making my partners birthday special. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal as I did mine! X
Excellent food, lovely atmosphere
Amazing food. Staff very attentive and great with the kids, we weren’t made to feel unwelcome with noisy toddlers! Over all a very enjoyable birthday meal.
Such a warm welcome was afforded us. A big table of 10 with baby in tow! So glad this place was recommended to us by the wonderful chef we had at the rented house on our weekend away. If we are in the lakes again we WILL return.
I thought on this occasion the service was poor - we had to chase staff or try and indicate to staff that we wanted or were waiting for something 3 or 4 times Not nice when all staff have to do is keep an eye on their tables!
Booking online was simple and straightforward. The food, drink and service were perfect. We live locally and use the Brown Horse regularly and the atmosphere was great as always. This is the first time I have given feedback online using this facility. I wanted to give 5 stars for all aspects however the system won’t allow me to!
Another great meal and our friends who hadn't been before were very impressed also. Keep up the good work!! Loved the Indian curried cod/dhal dish and the addition of fennel was a nice touch. All the meals were really nicely presented and you could tell the chef had put thought into each one. Friendly service too. We will come again.
A delicious meal in a warm friendly atmosphere. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble.Will definately recommend and we'll be back soon.
The Brown Horse went above and beyond to make our huge family lunch on Boxing day ever so special. Nothing was imposible or request too large...they recommended a pre lunch family walk, were patient with our changing orders, made us all feel welcomed and gave us huge plates of honest pub food. Couldnt recommend these guys enough - they really understand and deliver on customer service. thanks
Still a good place to visit but wasn't as good as my visit in the summer. I think the menu could do with updating / improving in places. There was only one vegetarian option for main, which was a little disappointing.
Enjoyable as previous visits
Fabulous food and service. Always been my favourite place to eat!
Always an interesting menu with a mix of “classics” and creative dishes. Service is good with friendly staff - sometimes a little slower than perfect (but that’s a very minor criticism). Because it’s more of a restaurant than a pub, space for stopping in for a pint is a little limited. Been coming here for more than 30 years and bottom line, it’s one of my favourite places.
My first visit - recommended by a local person. It was a delightful evening. The food was delicious and the customer service excellent. I'll definitely be back to The Brown Horse on my next visit to The Lakes.
We frequent the Brown Horse at least once a month (We live in Carnforth). We had our family up from Manchester who had a great time and the food was great ... Kath & Eddie
We visited the Brown Horse 2 years ago - the night before we got married in the Lakes. They comfortabley accommodated 20 of us and we had a fabulous night. To celebrate our 2nd anniversary we came back, but only 4 of us this time. The meal was excellent, the service was spot on and we had a fantastic night. We aren’t locals, but we will definitely be back and my parents are visiting the lakes next month and we’ve told them to make sure they pop along. Thank you for making our anniversary special and a night to remember.
We were made to feel extremely welcome throughput our meal. The staff were very friendly. The Christmas decorations were lovely. A good time was had by all. Thank you Merry Christmas 🎅
We four were the only ones in the Dining Room for lunch, our table was in a rather draughty corner and one bench seat was wobbly. Service a little slow but despite that the food was delicious. We will visit again very soon.
Great food and service
We had a fantastic relaxed lunch and the service was great. All the food was beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious (washed down with an amazing G &T) We will definitely be back again.
Thank you for your lovely review, we look forward to welcoming you back!
