Chasing waterfalls & eating good food
After a day spent in the sunshine, swimming in streams and under waterfalls, the only thing that could put the cherry on top of the cake was some really good, finger licking, plate scraping kind of food and I'm so glad that the Sticklebarn in the Langdales just knows exactly what you need after a day in the hills.
We sat outside because it was scorching and enjoyed a cold cider. It was the perfect cool down whilst we waited for our supper! The views of the Langdales from here are stunning and the amount of people coming and going from here is really lovely to see, so it's a great place to people watch or bump in to someone you know, especially if you're a local!
Moving on to the most important thing part, the food.. Josh and I shared the hummus bowl & toasted flat breads and the loaded fries too. They are certainly generous portions but us being us could have totally eaten another portion of each! Instead we went for pudding and ordered the raspberry brownie with coconut cream (sorry no photo of this one, we dug straight in!) and let me just say.. wow. So good! We shared that between us again too but next time I'll be getting my own.. as well as the loaded fries and the hummus! I'm always extra ravenous after a walk and swim, especially when it's this good.
There is a National Trust car park about 100 metres from the Sticklbarn, so if you're a member don't forget your card!
The Sticklebarn is dog friendly, inside and outside, so it's the perfect place for your pup to have a snooze whilst you enjoy a drink and some food.
Tables are available on a first come first served basis and there are a lot of tables to chose from usually.
