Rude staff, don't bother. Coniston has some lovely places, friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately the yewdale is not one of them. Very rude staff.

If you're after a nice friendly pint, then I suggest you avoid this establishment. We're refused entry due to some policy, we happily found two very welcoming pubs nearby.

Stopped for breakfast. Very average. Bacon butty (no butter, very dry). Kippers, very disappointing (presume frozen). Would not return.

Dont be put of by the fact that the pub looks like a sports bar and that there are tv's in every part of it, try the food it was great. We ate there a couple of nights as it was part of a package friends had with their room, both of which were served quickly and tasted wonderful -... More

We've been here lots over the last few years. We generally use it as a last stop for a bottle of blind pig before heading back to the cottage. This is the first time we have had tea / dinner here though and it was cracking. My eldest who eats like a horse ate like a horse , as did... More

We visited the Yewdale after failing to get a table at the steam bistro. The staff were friendly even though it was a bit of a struggle to get to the bar and grab their attention. I ordered to Cumberland sausage and mash, my wife ordered the butternut squash pasta. We waited quite a while for the food to arrive... More

I remember you well as you were disappointed that our Bistro was also fully booked that evening. Having failed to book a table on a very busy Friday night you chose to sit on the last available table in our bar which was full of locals and visitors alike. You clearly expected a quiet meal for two and table service,... More

Food was superb, on par with any of the best London restaurants. Portions big, wear your stretch pants!

Buy two courses off their lovely menu and get a bottle of wine for £5 on Wednesdays. Well cooked and good menu with specials. Great beer including Timmy Taylor's Champion beer of 2016, scrumptious! Good landlord too and lively atmosphere. Dog friendly
