All staff from the chef and waiters/ waitresses and bar man are friendly and welcoming and great with my little one. Food was amazing and great value for money x
I don’t normally do reviews but I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough. Food is fantastic, great range of drinks and the staff are so friendly. The locals are talkative and the rooms are cosy. Recommend highly to anyone wanting a weekend get away!!! More...
After hearing about this special little place my wife and I travelled from Melbourne to find out what was so special and we weren’t disappointed. The fresh and local food that was plated in the evening was outstanding and could not be faulted. The front of house service is good with very friendly staff and Emma is a very bubble person and is a joy to have a chat with over a glass of wine. As we stayed in Oddfellows for a couple of nights the rooms are very comfortable but the floors are thin so you can hear what is going on in the pub at night. Overall a very enjoyable experience and we wish Emma and James all the success as they work extremely hard to make sure the customers have a great time More...
We’re Aussies that popped in for a bite to eat & the it was awesome. Both the service & food were 5 stars!

We phoned up in the hope they could fit us in and they did the food was so lovely it was a little slow as they was short staffed but the meal was so lovely we went back on our last night just as wonderful. Great value for money too
Great food, lovely friendly atmosphere
Excellent food these days !
Another lovely evening at the Oddfellows with my partner and the children. The chef, James, catered wonderfully for all of us. We can’t thank him enough for being so flexible and for his first rate food. My partner and I had the delicious smoked fish cakes from the specials board; the kids had cheeseburgers and fries/chips. Not a single scrap was left on the plate from anyone, and the grownups washed it all down with a perfect pint of Cockerhoop. The bar staff are always on point, too. Thank you all for such amazing service and food time and time again. Couldn’t ask for a better local. :) More...

We had our evening meal here on saturday, service was great and the food was outstanding the portions were big and well presented. We always call in when in the area, will be back again in April x More...
Great stay here. We had a weekend at the oddfellows arms in February. We will definitely be returning for another stay! Great staff, warm cosy pub, dog friendly, great food and beautiful area. Amazing place to stay to explore the Lake District, surrounded by nature and some of the best scenery in England :-) 10/10 highly recommend :-) More...
Amongst the hundreds of ‘welcoming’ public houses within the Lake District, we stumbled upon a double fronted, chocolate box public house that was steeped within history. Two moments later, we stumbled over the threshold and at the drop of a hat two of most finest publicans I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting emerged. It goes without saying, that within the 14 years of debauchery (and counting) I’ve never felt as welcome within these four walls. Might be something to do with the warmth from that burner when meandering in. I enquired for a blonde ale to be met by a plethora of choice, blondes, milds, stouts and a comprehensive top shelf, is set my sights on a lighter variety of the Wychwood, Hobgoblin. Perfect brew. Any how, must dash, dinners on. Thanks for your perfect hospitality Emma & James. More...
The food is always excellent! Staff are welcoming
We had a family meal here tonight and it was lovely. All freshly cooked and the kids wolfed their food too. Nothing was too much trouble, the server plus the new(ish! ) landlords Emma and James were fabulous hosts. Also amazing gin selection! Will definitely be back, and to stay overnight next time. Thanks x More...
The owners make it a special place and James is an awesome chef

We have just enjoyed Christmas lunch at The Oddfellows. I really wanted to score this as 4/5 but it was just so much better than expected that I have to give it 5/5. We knew the food was going to be good and the staff friendly, but it is the sheer effort put in by ALL the staff that really made it great. They coped fantastically with a variety of allergies and really helped us to have a great time More...

We had a cracker of a meal here yesterday evening. The best chicken burger I have ever eaten! Nestled in the heart of a stunner of a Lakeland village, these guys have got the ambience bang on. Relaxed and family focussed - can't wait to get back there! More...

Fantastic service, the tomahawk steak was delicious, cooked perfectly, more than enough for 2 people. I will definitely be back thank you
What a stroke of luck to come across The Oddfellows Arms while on a short break. Emma made us (and our dog Dudley) feel very welcome and we enjoyed a superb meal in a very friendly and welcoming environment. We had the Tomahawk steak for two which was cooked to perfection by James - very highly recommended, you have to try it if it’s on the specials board! We enjoyed it so much we’ve booked to go back for Sunday lunch. You’ve got to try it - I promise you won’t be disappointed. Emma is a great host and seemed to have time for all her customers. Thank you More...
We have just eaten at the Oddfellows Arms, we had rack of ribs they were so good they fell away from the bone, nice and friendly staff, would go there again if we were in the area. I would date it 5 out of 5.
Oh my wow! Haven't been back in Oddfellows since I worked there 14 year ago. Lovely to be back & the food was delicious. Will definitely be going back when the new kitchen is up & running. Friendly helpful staff, gorgeous food, reasonably priced & beautiful surroundings. What more could you want? More...

Called in here yesterday for a drink and lunch. Food was good and gin selection impressive. Friendly staff. We’ll be back. Just a shame the fires aren’t real would be a great addition. More...
Lovely place to eat, went in just before food was due to finish serving. Welcomed in and the service was really friendly. Lots of us ate and the food was excellent for everyone . They couldn't do enough for us and the kids and we'll definitely be going back again! More...
Great food, friendly atmosphere and helpful attentive staff, what more could you want :-)
Popped in for a few drinks on Friday, very welcoming & friendly atmosphere. Treated ourselves to the takeaway menu, really delicious and fresh! Would definitely recommend a visit :) More...
We called in on a Friday lunchtime and were very impressed with the food. We have a 2 year old who likes to give us the run around and we might have felt a little awkward or self-conscious in less friendly places, but we were all warmly welcomed and the service couldn't be faulted. Prices were reasonable and the food was all completely fresh, well presented, and delicious. Spent most of the way home talking about how good it tasted. Emma and James are clearly doing all the right things so we wish them every success - we will be back! X More...

Cracking Cumbrian pub. Great food, excellent service and hospitality. Staying at nearby Wallace Lane Farm and the pub owners helped us out no end. Highly recommend
Recently stayed in Caldbeck and we used Oddfellows Arms every night. Good selection of beers and lagers and the food is excellent. We ate different dishes, starters and mains, and all were top quality and tasty. No problems taking our little dog in. Staff are really friendly and attentive, totally recommended. More...
The wife and I have stayed here on a number of occasions and we have always been made most welcome the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is very good ,the staff are very friendly and helpful and the meals have always been good value for money so good we have booked up for Easter weekend.
New Year's Day lunch was brilliant. Our party of 20 all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Staff very friendly and a great atmosphere. Home made cheesecake was awesome!! We will defiantly be back very soon More...
Friendly staff and fabulous food. The burger & chips was a real treat! I look forward to another visit.
I ate at the Oddfellows last night, having not been for several years. Probably the best burger I've eaten, and the new wine list is fantastic. Brilliant
Called in on off chance for food. Safe to say we were all delighted they were serving and could fit our table of 8 in. All kids meals were delicious and plentiful. Kids fish and chips was a very good portion. The Chips were so good and homemade. Best chips weve had for a while. 3 of us had the ultimate burger and boy was it ultimate. Nice thick proper beef burger with plenty of extras. A little on the dry side but so meaty and tasty. I couldnt finish mine. What a nice treat for us all a good find on the way home from our trip to siloth. :) Thsnk you More...
Very nice staff at this place would highly recommend it! One of the regulars wouldn't go anywhere else!
