Today's Lunch Menu
To speed up service at lunch times and to provide a healthy quick snack we have our "Woolpacker Lunches", based on a Ploughman's. Available from 12.30 until 6pm or until our lovely home made bread runs out.
Quack n Oink
A rich tasty coarse Duck and Pork pate, served with homemade bread and red onion marmalade
Honey Roast Ham
Our own home honey roast ham, served with home made bread bun and Dave's chutney, fresh fruit and vegetables
A piece of local organic farmhouse cheese from Low Sizergh Barn, served with home made bread bun and Dave's chutney, fruit and vegetables
Hot of the day
Hot dishes are served between 12:30 and 2:30
Crunchy Mixed Bean Casserole
A mix of pulses cooked al dente in a chilli tomato sauce with vegetables and potatoes
"The best" Cumberland sausage cooked in our home made gravy with onions and potatoes
Beef in Hardknott Beer
Locally reared Cumbrian Beef, potatoes and vegetables in our own tasty beer gravy
Our lunch menu concentrates on doing a few things really well. We make all our own bread and chutney and the casseroles and stews are homemade from fresh ingredients.
This helps us to ensure you get your lunch quickly, even if we are busy, without compromising quality.
This also enables our chef/brewer to focus on brewing our own ale and providing our innovative evening cuisine.
We would strongly recommend a visit to us for our evening food if you are at all interested in something different. All dishes are unique to Dave’s kitchen. But beware, if it’s quiet he might decide to brew beer instead and close the kitchen, if it’s busy, you might not get in. So it’s always best to book.

OK, so some of the ploughman's contain meat. It confuses me too when I go off on one explaining about the cheese and forget to explain how delish the paté is, because I know that cheese is what is supposed to be on a Ploughman's. Despite being a confirmed carnivore, on this occasion cheese works best. But then I love cheese.
Now, go on then find fault, I know you will.
