A great building, friendly staff, great ales, brilliant food ( cheese and onion pie! And chips - fab), great after a walk from Kendal and down the way from the castle. Dog Friendly too. A slice of olde Cumbria.

This is a lovely building. The staff are friendly but the wine is expensive, but where isn't now? On the food front we only had sandwiches so that's hard to get wrong, the better one being the 'vegetarian club'. The side portion of chips were nice and hot. Will visit again.

Generally pretty good all round. Would go again. Food is of a good standard but not excellent. Nice place but a bit uncomfortable seating. Fairly good service .

Long wait to order. Longer wait for food. Small fish and chips means small - 5 chips. Fish pie was odd - potato cold, fish warm and sauce like water. No protest from staff about not being charged for it. Are they used to complaints about food quality? Serving staff were overstretched. Not impressed.

On the way home after a perfect holiday away, we called in for dinner. Everything was absolutely spot on - the duck in cherry - a new dish was amazing. The service was excellent, beer at its best. So lucky to have the best local in the world to come home to.

We've eaten at the Strickland Arms plenty of times and the food has usually been good but today we were very disappointed by the 'Strick' Burger and the customer service. The burger was like a rubber dog toy, frankly horrible and was left largely uneaten. On paying the bill I was asked how the meal was, so I politely mentioned... More

Called in mid afternoon on a Sunday and was lucky enough to get a table in the bar area (we had dogs with us) without booking. We'd had a chilly walk and it was lovely to see an open fire going, we soon warmed up. Had the home made pie of the day (steak & mushroom), a small size fish... More

Popped in for a quick Friday night dinner with my other half and my brother. The friendly staff managed to find us a table despite being very busy. It's a lovely cosy traditional pub with a good selection of real ales which I believe they circulate regularly. The food was really quite excellent, the staff extremely friendly and attentive, the...

We walked in from the rain to find a lovely pub with friendly attentive staff. The menu was awesome and I struggled to narrow down my choice, I loved my Black pudding and my wife's scotch egg starter, all homemade. We both had pies which were fully encased in shortcrust pastry, obviously homemade and definitely something to be proud off.... More
