About Gilpin Bridge Inn

Many people heading off on an exploration of the Lakes District will find the market town of Kendal is the ideal gateway to this well-known area of outstanding natural beauty. Just a little further south is the village of Levens, and from here if you head over the River Gilpin, you won’t be able to miss the imposing 17th-century coaching inn and newly refurbished Robinsons pub The Gilpin Bridge Inn. Here at what’s locally known as Bridge End, eight ensuite bedrooms join an impressive, rustic tavern and restaurant stocked with real ales and other drinks, plus a menu of robust pub grub classics available for brunch, lunch and dinner. There’s a playground for the kids, a games room, and a famous Sunday lunch, too. Reservations are recommended at this iconic Cumbrian destination.

Really great place. On Sat 7th Jan '17 at 7pm, we were looked after by 2 young members of staff who were perfect. They were friendly, polite and efficient. Our meal was excellent and far exceeded usual 'pub food' we've had in similar places. Food quality was very good. Everything was cooked as we had requested and was all piping hot. Very good portion sizes, but at very reasonable prices. We do not live in the area, but will certainly be returning to the Gilpin Bridge for a meal and will recommend it to our friends.

I was with a party of four and we all had the roast dinner which was very good the only problem a little to much food( as in to many potatoes) therefore we left a little except my husband who ate it all !!!
