user reviews of the Punch Bowl Inn, Kirkstone Pass

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This pub is several miles west of Kendal and, at a guess, about 15 miles south of the Kirkstone Pass, where the only pub is the Kirkstone Pass Inn. There appear to be some crossed wires somewhere.

Owned by the same people who own the Drunken Duck (and the posh café Chesters at Skelwith Bridge), this is a less busy foody pub in the rolling country to the east of Windermere, at Crosthwaite. Unlike the Drunken Duck, one could have a drink at the bar without feeling the need to eat to fit in. The beers are from the Barngates range: Tag Lag, Westmorland Gold etc. A few years ago these seemed odd to my taste but they are now reliable and interesting enough.
The food is very good (the pub won Dining Pub of the Year last year) though with a hint of a multiple small dishes approach at lunch time rather than more typical Lake District approach of substantial dishes.
Outside whilst the view is nothing like the central Lakes, it is very pleasant. I aim to move to Crosthwaite!
