Please note we cannot guarantee specific tables when booking on line or at busy times.

The Cavendish Arms is a 450 year old Coaching inn set in the heart of Cartmel. With Simon Rogan and his famous Lenclume restaurant we have some very high standards to maintain. Our food is fresh and sourced locally to ensure the freshest ingredients are on your plate at all times. Our menu changes often and is always being developed by our very talented Head Chef and his team. Along with a great food offering, we are challenging boundaries with our selection of 25 gins, 10 whiskeys and many more superior sprits, we always try to have an alternative rather than using main stream brands behind the bar, ensuring our guests receive the best possible value for money we can provide whilst experiencing a better than expected product. In short our aim is to make sure you leave having had a memorable time and be wearing a huge smile.

    Food was really good. Proper english pub, very fitting for such a picturesque village such as Cartmel. Guys serving were really good and food arrived quickly. Good selection of beers/ales.

    A warm professional welcome on a busy sunny spring weekend. Intriguing good quality menu. Served quickly and on beautiful crockery. Everything you’d want from a bar/restaurant. Polite efficient staff. Couldn’t fault it at all.

    Booked for a special birthday, disappointed by selection of menu, no steaks at all ans struggled to find a starter that appealed. Ended up with a cold chicken/chickpea starter that wasn't what I was expecting. Chose a steak pie that came in a bowl with some cabbage and a bowl of Chips which was £22! Wife's meal she said was fine. Dessert menu was poor. Wife ordered a bloody mary cocktail and was priced at £13.50 which we consider expensive.
