    Ordered starters to share which never came. Staff didn't realise until we told them as the mains came out Drinks order took way too long to arrive as the bar didn't look over busy Ordered one particular beer which had finished, wasn't asked which we'd like instead and just poured any other beer Dirty wine glass with lipstick around the rim When asked for the starters to be refunded, 2 staff members laughed at my daughter as she was voicing her disappointment My wife's food came out burnt but we had lost the will to complain at this point as it was very apparent the staff on this occasion just weren't upto dealing with what was very clear, a difficult night to work there. Been before on numerous occasions and never experienced anything like it. We're not a fault finding group of people but the whole evening made us all very disappointed, hence feeling compelled to write such a poor review

    We popped in for a meal on our first night of our holiday in Cumbria. We had a superb meal. First time in a long time we had three courses and each one was excellent. The time between each course was perfect to allow you to enjoy each one. The service was excellent from all the staff. We stayed for the pub quiz and Sarah who did it was so good and it was a really pleasant evening. So much fun. I would highly recommend going even if it was only for a drink. The surroundings were so nice and comfortable and all the facilities were spotless.

    Great place to eat in the centre of the village and within a 10 mins walk of the Ullswater Steamers Pier. We ordered the lamb dish. It was a little fatty, so not entirely satisfied. They did not serve sherry or port, which was also a little disappointing.

    Great staff although one of them told another that he "wasn't going to f@@@ing do that" in front of customers and stormed off. They'd run out of Sunday dinners too by 4pm.

    Always great, we’re usually there on a busy bank holiday weekend and they run a very popular service and make it look easy! Food is great, especially the pizza and good value.

    Food was lovely but the toilets were well below the standard I would expect. 4 toilets are only toilet roll in 2. I did notify staff but they did nothing We will not eat there again

    This place does not need a review. You can see how successful it is when you arrive. Staff are so friendly and organised. Great food and portions. Will definitely revisit if in this area again.

    Friendly and welcoming staff. Service was really good, we had our drinks order taken within a few minutes of arriving. The food order was taken swiftly after that and our meals arrived well presented and tasty. If you’re intending a visit to Pooley Bridge we recommend booking a table at the Pooley Bridge Inn!!

    Fabulous food, lovely selection of menus which our party were all able to select their preference from, not limiting the choice. Lovely gin of the week and local draft beers. Great personal service
