Set amidst the stunning landscapes of the Lake District and winner of Cumbria Pub of the Year 2014, The Wild Boar Grill and Smokehouse showcases modern but hearty British food. Discover roaring open fires, sprawling rugs and low beamed ceilings in the cosy dining room.

Priding itself on its traditional décor bursting with character, The Wild Boar Inn also boasts an open kitchen for views of the chefs in action. Snack on pork crackling before sampling starters such as snails in herb, garlic and brandy cream, or game pie with piccalilli.

Guests can choose from mains including wild boar chop, and poached fillet of turbot with langoustines. Traditional pub classics such as the home roast and fish and chips can also be found on the Wild Boar Grill menu. Apple and homemade toffee vodka sorbet is a highlight among the desserts, and the wine list is substantial.

In close proximity to the famous Lake Windermere, The Wild Boar in Cumbria is a favourite with both locals and visitors. Windermere Train Station is a 10-minute drive away.

    The restaurant was relaxed and the table you had for us was great, a table by the window in the bottom corner was perfect.

    We visited on a Wednesday evening and had booked the table through your website. We were greeted warmly by the restaurant manager and shown to our table. We were however surprised to find that of the reserved tables ours was the smallest and other diners who had booked at the same time as us who arrived later were given these tables. I suspect they were guests staying at the hotel but it did seem to us that they were given preferential service.

    That is the only negative as the food was absolutely first class - I had the burger and my husband had the trio of pork. Delicious and very well presented.

    We would definitely visit again.

    We waited far too long for the first course - 40minutes. An apology was only made at the end when the waiter said the coffee was on the house. I had the vegeburger which was overpriced for the contents and greasy. Too many different waiters/waitresses. Service very slow. Won't come back.
