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.

    Beautiful meal. My husbands Wild Boar and Damson scotch egg was delicious with a lovely runny egg inside. I had the House smoked fillet steak -very interesting flavour and cooked to perfection. We both chose the Duck Egg custard tart with rhubarb sorbet which we thoroughly enjoyed. All the staff were excellent.

    This was an afternoon tea with a difference, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Staff were very pleasant, food was hot and very tasty, and I also enjoyed sampling the local ales as well.

    Fantastic meal, some of the best smoked cuts of meat we ever had. Staff were great,

    Very disappointing as quantity of food for 4 adults at £100 for the afternoon tea was poor. Only 2 small plant pots of chips between 4 adults which would not equate to one adult portion., Only 6 mini sausages on sticks not even two each. 2 small goujons of fish each that were only warm as were the 2 each chicken wings. One mini burger each. 2 small containers of pork scratchings which were so thick and rock hard that they were inedible and not suitable for dentures. There was no meaty scotch egg as shown on the pictures or slices of meat pie. The sweet offering were the smallest scones I have seen, a mini cup cake and literally a bite size of chocolate Brownie. It was our anniversary with friends and an embarrassment to ask them to pay for theirs so I paid the £125 final bill which included an extra round of drinks comprising of two glasses of Rose, one pint of Wainwright's and an J20 which I thought a drink was included as we did announce when we arrived that we had booked afternoon tea and were asked what drinks we would like. It did actually come with a drink as it happens but this was only asked when served. We were not greeted when we arrived by any of the several staff. We are not greedy or have huge appetites as we are all in our late fifties but honestly, this was only enough for two. If you like value for money then avoid this as it's a premium price for a meagre offering. This review asked to be detailed so there you have it.

    Came for afternoon tea with 3 friends,none of whom had been before. We thoroughly enjoyed it,they have all said they now prefer a "savoury" tea compared with the more traditional "sweet" alternative.

    Lovely afternoon tea. A bit different to the norm

    Stunning pub and worth the short trip from Bowness. Some great beers from their own brewery on site and extensive wine list. The food was stunning and the beef short rib was the coup de grace!
