Visited with teenager and 11 year old, hadn't realised it was a sports bar, very noisy. We did ask for a room on the top floor but were given 1st floor directly above bar at the front even though there were empty rooms. However, apart from the negatives, the staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious

Read the reviews and the Car Park lets the plaice down, if you manage to find a space, don't move your car until you leave, also can be noisey till very late. Room was nice and clean, with everything we needed. Good breakfast, and served quickly

We were looking for a welcoming pub which was dog friendly for a pint and bowl of warming soup and this fitted the bill. Service good and food arrived quickly. Our dog also enjoyed the visit! Obviously did not stay in the accommodation so can not comment about that.

The carpark has 7-8 spaces for the 48 rooms at the inn. Needless to say we only managed to actually park there for one out of two nights. Not to mention the fact that getting into the carpark is near impossible. The customer service was good and our breakfast was lovely and prompt however our shower took about 15 mins... More

On arrival we booked in at the sports bar, extremely decieving from the pictures online as this looked like a lovely country pub. We weretd there would be... More

A sporty mans pub . Just short of the sawdust. Felt completely out of place. Won't go again but understand why men like it. Not for me or other females but it's what you get. The drinks were ok. We ha do e drink and moved on . No hard feelings

Good meal out in Ambleside. Followed by disappointing drinks in Churchills. After 10 mins awaiting bar service went looking for attendant. Obviously looking on CCTV as when tapped on staff door he appeared but promptly served other later customers. Not impressed as had 2/3 rounds of drinks. No customer experience evident. Manager, please train dark curly haired bar man. Thanks.

A visit to Churchill's bar on a very rainy break to Cumbria was very welcome! We could take our dogs in which meant we could go in too - if the dogs don't go, we don't! It was a quiet lunchtime, service was good, food was nice, well-presented and good value for money.

My wife and I escaped the children, for a couple of nights. We stayed at the Churchill in the Superior Room. We were more than pleased with the room, large, clean with a large bathroom including nice bath and shower. Breakfast was excellent, not too much, just enough and well presented. The pub itself is also nice, I prefer the... More
