The Punch Bowl Inn dates back to at least the 18th Century and has undergone many changes on the way to being the vibrant village pub and hub of the community which it is today.

We serve delicious homemade meals to enjoy in the fully refurbished bar, seating areas and sunny beer garden.  The menu is small and changes all the time, ranging through classics like rump steak, fish and chips and lasagne to French country dishes of cassoulet and choucroute, Mediterranean seafood stews, Asian inspired slow-cooked shin beef and tasty vegetarian meals.  In season, we get many of our vegetables and salads from growers within the village. Local anglers and fishermen bring us fish from nearby lakes, rivers and the coastal waters off Silecroft and Haverigg. 

To go with the food we serve some excellent ales and our range of great value wines. We are fortunate to have a tremendous partnership with our neighbours, Beckstones Brewery, who keep our pumps charged with their great beers. Beckstones ales are always available and you’ll find locals and visitors enjoying “Freddy”, “Rev Rob” and our very own “White Rose Best Bitter”, plus beers from a range of other regional breweries, guest ales from further afield and occasional “national treasures”.  We don’t make a song and a dance about it but, on any visit to the Punch Bowl you’re very likely to find yourself in conversation with someone who has put something on your plate or in your glass.

Our mission is to run the Punch Bowl Inn like a traditional inn of the past, welcoming travellers and villagers alike and doing everything we can to accommodate and serve our guests during their time with us, so although we don’t cook every day we can usually rustle up something from our kitchen.  Informality, friendliness and quality are at the heart of what we do.
