Great find in Grasmere. My only criticism is I didn’t know there were guest beers till we left as they weren’t on the table menu. Great service and food!

We booked a table for 5.30 as we had our little girl so needed a reasonably eslry tea time. Got shown straight to our table & drinks order taken quickly. Food ordered within 10 minutes. I had the Kofta wrap, husband had the Cumbrian burger & we ordered nuggets for our little one. Food came quickly & was delicious. The wrap was larger than I expected & was lovely. Husband really enjoyed the burger. The nuggets were 4 large chicken pieces which were also lovely although little on ecoildnt eat them so dad finished them off! All meals came with fries which were nice & crispy & plenty of them. Overall we had a lovely meal. Staff were nice & friendly & quick with the service & we will definitely return on our next visit to the Grasmere

Very wonderful experience. My fiance is gluten free so was very reassuring that the staff understood the importance of it. (Thank you for that) and also they had good GF choices too. I suppose the only thing if anything was maybe would be offering GF beer BUT I appreciate everything is done in-house. We would definitely return and had a wonderful experience and could not fault a single thing!!!!

We had a wonderful evening in The Good Sport. Very friendly service, clean table area with a view of the river. Food was amazing - I had the local lamb kofta and it was delicious! We enjoyed the local beer and cider too. We’ve booked a table for another meal here too. Thank you!

This is the first time we have eaten out in over a year and it was a lovely evening. The food was delicious and arrived very quickly. Staff were friendly and polite. My partner enjoyed the local beer from Grasmere brewery and the local gin in a cocktail was also great.

Nice pub for food and casual drinks. Track and Trace in place, sanitiser to hand and screens (old doors-quirky) in between tables. Felt safe. Outdoor tables too with parasols which are big enough keep you dry when it pours with rain. Love Grasmere, nicest part of the Lakes in our opinion

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.
