We ate here 2 nights in a row over Easter weekend. The food was amazing. The prices are very reasonable. Portions are good. The Gin was lovely didn't manage to try them all as they have a really good selection. 3 Shelves full ! The staff are friendly and very welcoming. We had our dog with us and he was welcomed too.
I would advise that you book a table as it is very busy. Thank you for a lovely visit.

Stayed for a couple of nights and ate in the pub both nights. Really tasty food, well priced, generous portions and a good range of vegetarian options along with excellent service. Can't be faulted.

Stayed in a house in Nether Wasdale and popped in to sample their own beers. Very nice. Went back on our last night for a meal. Every dish was excellent and plentiful. I had Herdwick lamb Cutlets - there were 3 of them! huge great cutlets on a fabulous mash with grilled vegetables. Simply wonderful. Everyone loved their food - nothing microwaved and all freshly prepared.
You must visit. Nice traditional old pub.

We enjoyed a great meal at the Strands Inn last night. When we arrived, the staff were very friendly, personable and welcoming of our dog, which was a nice change from some of the sterile chain pubs back home. The menu mirrored the very traditional interior. We ordered the gammon and steak and ale pie, both of which tasted delicious. The portions were huge, and you could tell the pie was homemade. The hand-cut chips were the real deal too! We were pretty full after all that to be honest, but having enjoyed our mains we ordered dessert anyway, and we weren’t disappointed. Altogether, it was a very enjoyable, good-value evening in a beautiful location; a great start to our Lake District trip!
