Eating Out

You’re spoilt for choice when choosing where to eat in Ulverston. The town centre seems to have a cafe or pub on every street, and there’s a good range of restaurants serving many styles of cuisine. Some specialise in using fresh local produce, such as Lakeland lamb, potted shrimps, Holker venison, Waberthwaite air-dried ham, and huge Cumberland sausages. The list of local favourites stretches on to include the world-famous Cartmel sticky toffee pudding, damson beers and preserves from the Lyth valley, beer from the Ulverston Brewing Company, and Lakeland Willow Water.

The Bay Horse Hotel at Canal Foot is a national award winner for restaurant food and hospitality, and is great for large dinner parties. Another of our favourites is L’al Churrasco in the town centre, which serves amazingly flavoursome tapas dishes. Gillam’s Tearoom and the World Peace Cafe are entirely vegetarian, and we highly recommend them both. Our unofficial “quirkiest eating place” award goes to The Fourpence Cafe in King Street. The most family-friendly cafe has to be the Coach House at Ford Park (hard to beat when it’s right beside a great play area and a fascinating kitchen garden where you can see some of your food being grown). And finally, for traditional eat-in fish and chips with a mug of tea and a slice of bread, it’s got to be The Chippy Bank.

We’ve listed a selection of places in Ulverston where you can eat-in. We’ve identified the main style of food served at each place, but other options may also be available.
