Restaurant setting was delightful, porterhouse steak was cooked to perfection and the snicker sundae was to die for.

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 visited the Wild Boar for the third time and weren’t disappointed. On previous visits we have had the Alternative Afternoon Tea and before that, hot sandwiches at lunchtime. This visit was for our wedding anniversary and we had Sunday lunch. My husband ordered the ham hock starter and thoroughly enjoyed it. I opted for smoked salmon mouse and it was also delicious. We both had roast beef for mains - both were very tasty, perfectly cooked and were very well presented. We then had sticky toffee pudding for pudding, which was a perfect end to a perfect meal. The service, from entering the bar area to leaving after our meal, was outstanding. All staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. They all seemed happy in their work and, although we didn’t have to ask for anything, I’m sure nothing would have been too much trouble had we asked.

    We had yet another amazing afternoon tea, cannot fault the food and the staff here! We had booked as a special treat for my mum as she was visiting from Oxfordshire and although the weather was awful we had a lovely time here and forgot about it for a couple of hours.

    Amazing Inn, fantastic features. Service was superb, food amazing and unique - definitely a place to go back to time and time again!! The ‘afternoon tea’ special, with the amazing sausages, mini-fish and chips and sliders were superb. And a change from the rest. Excellent value & well worth a visit!
