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.

    Amazing food, service and atmosphere. The food is of a high quality, I enjoyed the Rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection, I would highly recommend. For dessert I had the Sticky Toffee Pudding that comes with ice cream, again this is delicious and a very generous portion size.
    The service is very good, all of the staff are extremely friendly.

    Sadly this was a disappointing visit. We visited last year and so enjoyed the food we vowed to revisit. Warm initial welcome was marred by being left unseated for 5 mins then having to change allocated table as staff had not taken into account our sons wheelchair. Strange as they had remembered to put out the ramp at the entrance. Ordered drinks and food, coffee had to be returned as it was cold, starters went down great but that couldn't be said for the mains. My wild boar was way over cooked and therefore dry and tough. My partners fillet steak, served rare as requested, was only just warm. My sons burger was really nice and tasty and bar far the best dish. Waiting on staff were friendly enough but the overall experience left us wishing we had kept last years memory and not returned.

    Simply the best steak I've found to date!
    The restaurant is wonderfully laid out feeling like a proper old English inn, whilst keeping in the modern day.
    I proposed to my now fiancee and the staff were so helpful with organizing the surprise and made the whole night feel just wonderful!

    The best place in the country for steaks. Their food is exceptional and their customer service is attentive, making the whole experience pleasurable.

    The food all arrived very fast, to the point where we'd ate our starters and mains within 40 minutes. The food was lovely and the service was great. Well recommended.

    Very quirky inside and lovely presentation of food. Service was excellent, only down side is it's a bit pricy and the dessert's were huge!
