Restaurant and Bar

The Punch Bowl, unlike many other Lakeland establishments is not trying to be a fine dining gastro pub. The Punch Bowl is proud of the fact that it is a proper Lakeland pub that serves proper pub food in generous sized proportions. Guests can expect a hearty menu of home cooked food, featuring traditional classics, such as Cumberland sausage and mash, hunters chicken, beer battered haddock, and a selection of burgers. Ingredients are all sourced locally and all meals are cooked to order. It’s a recipe for success and the Punch Bowl is a popular dining destination year-round.

As a traditional Lakeland pub, there are a wide range of real ales on offer, as well as a great wine selection. As you might expect, there is a pool table, dartboard, and dominoes available to guests and for those who stay on a Monday night, you can enjoy the weekly pub quiz. The pub is a popular meeting venue for a range of groups and sees monthly meetings of a local folk club, VW campers club, and a local Harley Davidson society displaying some impressive examples of these bikes.
