Best fish and chips I've ever had. Good service too. We would certainly go out of our way to eat there again.

Stumbled across this pub on our way home from the Lakes and decided to stop off for some dinner. Lovely food, reasonable prices and very friendly staff. I'd definitely recommend the burgers! My husband and I didn't have the guts to order in the voice of Homer Simpson to get discount though! Will definitely be back!

We come a lot and came for a meal on Wednesday and the food was all cold and the staff were rude. I know it was busy but we come at least 1 time a month but sadly the food was all ice cold the chips were not cooked and the staff were very rude. I would not recommend this... More

Went for my Husbands Birthday. Great pub, great food, love the mint cake vodka. Has been greatly improved by the current owners. Definitely worth a visit.

Wide ranging lunchtime menu, each one having the choice of a full meal or Light Bite. Food was first class served by cheerful friendly staff.

We went to the punch ball for my hubby's birthday meal with some friends . It was a lovely atmosphere and staff couldn't help enough, The food was amazing and the deserts were to die for 😉 which was great because they are my favourite 😜 . They even made my hubby this beautiful cake 😀😁😉

Having read the other reviews and being on the way to Oxenholme station to pick the family up, I decided to go early and have my evening meal at the Punch Bowl. It certainly.justified the good reviews, friendly service and good food. I will certainly go back if I happen to be in the area again.
