Firstly the positives...the Strickland is a beautiful period pub..good food......lovely local real ales...tastefully decorated...great atmosphere...friendly staff...open fires etc...ticks all the boxes really.

The evening began well for the six of us with drinks in the cosy bar area. Unfortunately things went down hill when we got our table in the restaurant. We had the New Years Eve table d'hote menu and portions were small. My 'deconstructed' salad was basically a pile of rocket with a blob of goats cheese on top. The... More

Either for a drink or a bite to eat, this pub always delivers on service and quality. We visit here a couple of times a month and always have a great experience. On a weekend it can get very very busy which slows down the service but this is understandable. The fish finger sandwiches are a must!

Called in for lunch twice whilst holidaying in the South Lakes and enjoyed first rate pub food. The Large fish & chips was indeed Large, the batter perfect and the fish very flavoursome. As you enter go to the right and try to find a table in the bar, the open fire made it warm and welcoming. Good selection of... More

Had dinner here and loved my Lancashire Hot Pot. My husband however thought his fish pie was flavourless and his cheese course although huge was nothing to write home about. Service was good but the restaurant was a little cold.

Visited with friends for lunch between Christmas and New Year. Choice of menu and prices pretty average The waiting staff were not over attentive and service was pretty slow but not a problem to us. I chose the steak which was absolutely superb but sadly the fact we were surrounded on all sides by diners accompanied by their dogs means... More

A group of us booked Christmas lunch here, because it had to be cancelled the previous year because of the flooding. The service was very good and the food was presented very well and very tasty. The establishment was very cold, so much so that we had to eat our lunch with our coats on.

Fantastic, tasty, stake & ale pie, but only a very mediocre fish pie. Other meals were fine. Swan was off, then Keswick was off. Good service, although a bit stretched. But PLEASE - get that slamming door fixed - it was driving us nuts by the end of our lunch.

Great food beer and service today in this busy pub. Shabby chic decor, attentive staff and good local beer and pub grub. Worth diverting from main road to visit.
