Yesterday, April 1st 2015, we visited The Agricultural Hotel in Penrith for a late lunch. Having checked out the reviews which were mostly favourable, my first impression was that this was a lot smaller than it looked from the outside. The eating area was closed leaving only a very basic bar area open for use. We chose the steak and...

Have eaten here before during a Saturday lunch so decided to bring all the full family for Mothers Day, the food was excellent and the portions were good and tasty. The staff were friendly and accommodating. It's like a country pub in the town. Will def be heading back soon.

Fantastic hotel, lovely food especially the breakfast. Gary was a brilliant host, our room 106 had privacy and was very clean. Really enjoyed our stay. The town had lots of pubs guided by our host Gary. Top notch. Cheers Martin, Heather, Mick and Pam.

Took mother and family for Sunday lunch. Had never been inside The Agricultural before; it's really friendly and welcoming. The food was good and value for money, staff were lovely. The portions are huge; but they do a small portion option as well. We would definitely go back again.

We had a very good meal in the restaurant area beside the bar. Food was excellent, plentiful and very reasonably priced, service courteous and efficient, and the atmosphere friendly. Superior pub grub.

We dined this evening, as we usually do going from Scotland to England or vice versa. The same high quality has been maintained for years. Excellent food, well presented and reasonably priced. They don't give you peas with everything as is often the case. You can expect broccoli, carrots, cauliflower etc with your meal. Highly recommended eating place.

We found ourselves desparately trying to find somewhere for a late lunch in Penrith having driven up from Folkestone that morning. After much searching we happened on the Agricultural. Rather empty (sadly for them) as it was Thursday lunch, but very pleasant for us, we proceeded to have a great, value-for-money lunch, burgers as well as a ciabatta (to get...
