We visited The Strands to celebrate a family 90th birthday. The staff were excellent and really looked after us, making a fuss of Dad (in law) who doesn’t get the chance to get out often. He loved it. The food was excellent , from starter...More

We went to The Strands following a strenuous walk nearby. Unfortunately, the quality of the food seemed dependent on which menu was used. My wife and I weren't particularly hungry so opted for a 'gourmet' fish finger sandwich (about £6) and a cheese and bacon...More

Lovely Christmas meal here although maybe a few roast items missing from what we'd expect (parsnips not roasted, no pigs in blankets!). Roasties could've been better. But always very warm and friendly, games available for kids, and great beer. One of our favourite pubs.

Lovely evening with friends enjoying good food and real ale. The pub has its own micro brewery which has been around for some years now. Local musicians provided great entertainment and we all joined in. Great, friendly atmosphere. Food good for vegetarians.

We called in after walking around the wastwater area. Nice friendly welcome, lovely cosy feel to the place, and good selection of ales, some made in the village. A few in eating meals, and they seemed to be enjoying them.

The Strands offers a great atmosphere, beer and service, however the vegetarian menu was very sadly lacking. As a non-meat eater, I booked a meal there recently based on the vegetarian/ fish dishes advertised on its website. Unfortunately when I arrived the menu for non-meat...More

Visited here for dinner after a great drive in the lakes. Been here a few time before and always had excellent food, entertainment and service. However, that has definitely changed within a year. Booked our table a month in advance. We wanted to be on...More

Good beer, good food. Exactly what you want after hiking all day. Get the steak and ale pie, you won't regret it.
