We ate in the Rambler's Bar, whilst on our Coast to Coast walk, and had a tasty evening meal in pleasant surroundings, with good sized portions from an extensive menu. Good service from pleasant staff.

A thoroughly enjoyable meal - very good quality and plenty of it. It was at the end of a Sunday evening and sadly my yorkshire's were almost inedible but the roast beef more than made up for it.

Had the best meal here that I have had in ages. Gammon was cooked lovely and came with egg, pineapple and tomato. Bar is in a lovely location and will hopefully be going back before the end of our stay. Would highly recommend.

The Candleroom is a brand new addition to Rambler's Bar. This bright and lofty, oak beamed room features a stunning glass frontage offering views to the fells and beyond. With an eclectic mix of modern and traditional furnishing, upholstered in beautifully co-ordinated fabrics, large custom made pendants and church candle lights hanging from the rafters giving this room a fantastic atmosphere. In Ramblers, sit by the log burner with a pint of real ale and enjoy hearty food; the perfect combination after a day on the fells or a drive out in the car. Ramblers Bar & Candleroom, situated in the grounds of the Inn on the Lake, offers a relaxed and cosy atmosphere in which to enjoy all this as well as great hospitality and friendly conversation. This typical Lakeland pub loved by locals and visitors alike, is an ideal spot to stop in the summer months when you can enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace. Or in winter sit by the log burner and devour a hearty meal such as the full flavour of the hiker’s chicken & mushroom pie, fell bred lamb rack, delicious beef casserole and dumplings or the Jennings Beer Battered fish. Throughout the year there are a variety of theme nights including live music and summer BBQ’s, festive lunches and more.
