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.

    Fantastic fresh locally sourced game, smoked seafood, fish, local meats. Cooked fresh to order. Wonderful rich flavours perfectly cooked and served. Some great ideas on the menu. Definitely go there if you possibly can. You will not be disappointed!

    Nice experience, didn’t realise you would only get a selection of what the menu offers rather than a small amount of everything mentioned. Vegetarian scotch egg was beautiful nice surroundings and wonderful service

    This was our second visit to The Wild Boar for the special Afternoon Tea, and once again, it didn't disappoint! From the cheery welcome, the lovely, friendly and attentive waiters/waitresses, to the gorgeous food - we sent an empty board back - to the choice of drinks - absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere was great too - plenty of folk about but no other table was too close so that we could have a conversation in relative privacy - had we needed to! The surroundings are also lovely - a comfortable, traditional, non-pretentious hotel - we saw other residents bringing their dogs in - good to know for next time as we'll probably bring ours! We'd just like to say a huge 'thanks' to the team - we'll be back and are also recommending you to our friends.

    Great steak as always...the onion were a bit disappointing though as on our previous visits have been homemade but the ones we we had on Friday night appeared to be frozen readymade ones, so wouldn’t order these next time. The sticky toffee pudding was a huge portion which we devoured... a great dining experience as always.

    I made this booking for a friends birthday treat and we loved the whole experience of the food then moving out to a table near the lovely open fire. I was driving as it was my friends birthday but her and our other friend loved it so much they didn’t want to leave. 2 bottles of wine later I managed to persuade them it was getting late and possibly icy. We will definitely book again.

    Booking was easy and ambience was great however one of the choices sea bream was very small and mussels with the dish gritty. You also need to order side dishes too complement the main courses. I complained about the sea bream had the staff reduced the price

    Food was sublime. It was so delicious. The duck was exquisite. The service was friendly and efficient. We had a lovely evening and will return. It would have been 5 stars without a doubt if they turned the lights down. There wasn’t much of an atmosphere because it was too bright in there. The candles on the tables were a lovely touch but it was too bright to appreciate them.
