Used the on line booking app so we could have a table after we'd been for a walk around Rydal water. Everything was very well arranged and we felt very safe at our table. The staff were excellent and the food and ales from the brewery were first class. Will definitely go back when covid restrictions allow.

We booked to eat on our 1st night of 3 at Grasmere, we ate there every night as the food and drink was so good. Felt very comfortable, with room between tables and for food and drink ordering. Staff on the ball ensuring social distancing was adhered too. Thankyou very much to all staff, very much enjoyed The Good Sport.

We booked early and asked for a table outside but it was a lovely surprise when we found our table was on the terrace right beside the river. The service was excellent very friendly and also efficient we didn’t have to wait long and the online ordering worked perfectly. Very good food too would highly recommend.

On arriving at the Good Sport for our table that we had booked, but were a little bit early, the very pleasant young lady found us a table. We had drinks before our meal & the pale ale is a real ale drinkers delight. We had the lamb burger each, me & the wife, & that too was excellent. The staff, the drinks, the meal & the atmosphere all made it an unforgettable evening in these troubled times. Next time we are in Grasmere, this is going to be our first stop.
