Surrounded by beautiful landscapes, with panoramic views over the Cumbrian Fells on the edge of the Lake District, Stoneybeck Inn is fast becoming a destination in itself for food lovers visiting Cumbria. The decor and venue are superb – a tastefully renovated old farmhouse on the A6 at Bowscar, between Penrith and Carlisle – and the food is even better. Recipients of the coveted AA Rosette award, Stoneybeck Inn is dedicated to quality and tradition, a dedication producing one of the most delicious menus of modern British cuisine in the Northwest. The flagship event at Stoneybeck Inn is the Sunday roast carvery with homemade Yorkshire puddings – once you try one, you’ll see why bookings are absolutely essential. Stoneybeck Inn also offers authentic British desserts, best enjoyed during their dedicated pudding nights (where you can taste 5). In between there are countless delicious lunch and dinner options, from liver and onions to twice baked cheese soufflé.
Located on the fringe of the Lakes District, Stoneybeck Inn is a true countryside oasis serving up heartwarming British fare in one of the best spots in the area. The team at this Bowscar haven take great pride in locally sourcing all their produce, so the quality of each dish on offer is of course, of the highest standard. The Stoneybeck Inn is the ideal spot for a week away taking it all in, or even just for lunch or dinner after a day exploring the Penrith and Carlisle surrounds.
Along with the scenery, the food is the star of the show here, so we’ll get straight to it. No visit to Stoneybeck Inn is complete unless you jump feet first, and treat yourself to the whole hog and go for a starter, main and dessert. Get things going with a smoked mackerel fillet with beetroot salad and horseradish creme fraiche, before the main event of roasted chicken supreme with wild garlic mash, seasonal veg, and sauce supreme. As we said, Stoneybeck Inn does some seriously good British desserts, and we highly advise ordering the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and icecream. You’ll find them, along The A6 at Bowscar, not too far out of Penrith – you’re really in for a treat here!
The food and service were very good and the decor is lovely. Would definitely go back. We visited as a group of 9 and could not fault the quality of the food served.
