Next on the list is the Drunken Duck Inn.

Coming in third place, this pub is located in the quaint town of Ambleside, in Cumbria.

The pub has a total of 1,294 Tripadvisor reviews and a high four-star rating.

According to Eden’s Gate’s research, 711 of these reviews were rated five-star and only 63 with a low one-star rating, resulting in a disparity of 11.

Most five-star reviews were made during the months of June, July, and August, therefore it seems to be a beautiful place to enjoy the summer sun.

One Trip Advisor user called described the pub as “absolute perfection”. They continued: “Superb! A return visit after many years and it was even better than we remembered. I honestly can’t fathom the recent poor reviews as all four of our lunches were faultless – we only couldn’t agree on who had ordered best. The aubergine steak was a revelation, pork was ‘best ever had’, cod was perfection and suet pudding was divine. The soufflé was creamy loveliness but I was jealous of the gin cured salmon—that plate was heaven in every mouthful. I think someone must have been reviewing a different restaurant because the service was excellent, friendly and just the right amount of attention. Without doubt the highlight of our trip – actually felt it was a great value for the quality and quantity, we came away stuffed and supremely happy. Ignore those previous moaners, it is an unreserved recommendation from us!”

Trip Advisor user Jessica added: “A delightful meal on our way from Cartmel Fell to Troutbeck! We’d booked a few weeks in advance and I’m glad we did. The food was just stunningly good; the cod loin with peppercorn sauce is one of my favourite meals I think I’ve ever had. And the sticky toffee pudding was a revelation. Top marks for service as well.”
