Just hit the spot after a long days walking. Tasty food and friendly staff. Welcoming fire. The deserts were delicious. Dog friendly. Perfect gem of a pub nestled on the lakes. Will definitely return.

Just spent 2 nights staying nearby, had our evening meal & a few drinks here both nights. Really good food & warm welcome from the staff. Sat in front of the gorgeous fire, nice & relaxed. Just visit you won't be sorry.

Hubby and I called in at The Tower Bank Arms to kill an hour or two whilst the rest of the family went walking in the rain. We definitely got the better end of the bargain! I am giving a very good rating as we did not have the opportunity to sample either the accommodation or the food, we just... More

This place was a great find. The food was yummy. Homemade and so tasty. The presentation was just fab we enjoyed starters and main course and all were fantastic. A must visit. Friendly and very welcoming place. We couldn't fit in a pudding but there was a lovely selection.

We came here in Oct 2014 with friends and our dogs. The pub is situated in he village of Near Sawrey -famous for Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm next door. Depending on the time of year, on entering you are greater by the open fire, traditional slate floor and a collection of local items displayed all around the bar. The... More

We are regular visitors to The Tower Bank Arms whenever we visit the lakes. The food is excellent but you can't reserve tables in the bar area so make sure to get there early for evening meal as tables are limited due to the cosy layout. If you take the dog you can only eat in the bar area. We've... More

We have just enjoyed another superb stay at The Tower Bank Arms. As always Anthony was the perfect host; the food was as good if not better than before (the creme brulee was divine), and the ambiance of the pub with it's mix of tourists and locals just can't be beaten. Can't wait to return.

Bit of a pain to park - go to the National Trust car park (free) and walk back 50m. Lunch serving time is 1200hrs to 1400hrs and (on Saturdays anyway) you can't book so you have to be organised. We got there and a sign saying "no more food" appeared on the bar as we took the last table at... More

The Tower Bank Arms is right next to Hilltop, Beatrix Potter's home, in the tiny village of Near Sawrey. The whole village is enchanting and the source of many of the pictures in Potter's books. You wake to morning fog and the sound of birds, sheep, and cattle. The rooms at the Arms are small and have small bathrooms but... More
