This luxurious Lake District Inn and gastropub mixes together fine food and dining with the mesmerising landscape of the Lakes.

The Punch Bowl Inn sits in the middle of the Lyth Valley, which is unspoiled and looks as it did hundreds of years ago.

As well as offering outstanding dishes, which we’ll come on to in a bit, guests at the gastropub, whether just dining and sleeping over, can take advantage of various activities.

From walking to golf, the theater and county shows, there’s a lot to keep yourself entertained.

It may also be worth looking at the pub’s website before heading across to it as, on the rare occasion, it may be closed for exclusive events. The pub does, however, aim to give as much warning as possible.

Food is simple, yet delicious and showcases the skills of the talented chefs in the kitchen as well the high quality of the produce available.

Diners are welcome to eat in the bar, but there is also a restaurant area for something a little more formal.

Dishes on the a la carte menu include mushroom veloute with thyme chantilly; or pork terrine with damson chutney and toasted cinnamon sourdough to start.

Main dishes could feature the likes of pan fried Scottish cod loin with mussels, leek, pancetta and creamed potatoes; or beetroot gratin with wild mushrooms, Gruyere cheese crust and shimeji mushrooms

To round things off, dessert dishes include raspberry souffle with vanilla ice cream and the Punchbowl lemon tart with Mirk Howe damson sorbet.
