My wife and I took my sister and her husband for the alternative afternoon tea and they were really impressed,both by the meal and the hotel.

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.

    We went for Afternoon Tea and it was perfect! Much better than a 'normal' afternoon tea, the fish and chips were particularly good. We were really well looked after and it was lovely surroundings to spend an afternoon in. We'll definitely be back.

    Way overpriced for the area and quality of food. Has a smokehouse which wasn’t running?. We paid £87 for two burgers, starters and drinks. I’d expect to pay £65

    It was very nice we had the afternoon tea which was a change from other hotels we have been to who just do sandwiches and cakes

    It was good for a quiet catch up with a friend . we didnt like the pork scratching . the burger and fish and chips were the high lites . It was better than any other afternoon tea we have had in the area

    Lovely place. Brought friends for the alternative afternoon tea as we had been before. Was great only problem was I think we should have had a bigger table.,with the beer bats., cups, glasses and the afternoon tea tower., etc we were really struggling for space. Bigger table definitely needed.

    Finding the place was easy and plenty of parking too! Very clean and tidy and well maintained, it is kept warm too! So, alternative afternoon tea...was awesome. I would go back if I'm the area again to try the main menu! Would really recommend!

    The food is always good and the setting is beautiful. The service upon arrival is good and when ordering the staff are helpful. However, on a few occasions now I feel that once the food arrives you seem to be left to your own devices. No-one came to collect the top plate, we had to go and find a member of staff when we were ready for tea, had to go and ask for the bill...

    A fantastic alternative afternoon tea. More highly weighted towards cooked savoury options than sweet which was a great change with a decent quality of food. Drink selection was varied (local ales recommended). Staff attentive and the location had character. Would recommend a visit!

    I thought the staff were extremely friendly, everyone made a point of speaking to us. Food was very good
    Only negative is I am doubtful the "triple cooked chips" were proper triple cooked chips as they didn't taste as if they had been triple cooked.
