Our Local

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 are fortunate to have a great 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”.

To go with these fine ales and our range of great value wines, 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. 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.

The pub is open at 5.30pm every evening from Tuesday to Sunday (closed Monday).

We cater for family parties, club dinners, funeral teas and other private events. Bookings for tables or any other enquires can be made by phone on 01229 774457 or by email to nickgamble@live.co.uk.
