Excellent room for £89, it was a very reasonable price for a good room & breakfast and the staff were fantastic. We arrived at dinner time & the staff arranged for us to have a table in the restaurant straight sway even though it was packed out. We will definitely stay again when we return next year because the staff... More

This time i had to wait 15 minutes to be served a record. Then the wifi wasnt working. The meal is cheap because it is very small. 10 chips and a small chicken breast diesnt consitute a meal. The staff seemed disinterested. I wont be coming back.

Nice enough pub to chill out after a long walk or bike ride and sit and people watch in the beer garden. Food menu though we didn't eat seemed a bit restrictive. Bar staff were very friendly and a good choice of local ales on offer

We come to Ambleside every year and the White Lion is our "local". So we delighted to note that it has had an amazing transformation. Its very clean and comfortable, great food and the choice of local bitters are superb I particularly loved the UBU bitter.This place is very popular, in fact it's doing an obvious roaring trade. All the... More

Had our evening meal here on our recent trip to Ambleside and noticed that, with the change in management came a new menu which gave a fantastic choice. The staff were excellent and very helpful to requests and cleared the tables quickly. Would recommend this as your first stop in Ambleside and I'm sure you will keep going back during... More

Ate here in Sept, food and service were ok and I have nothing to complain about, it does appear to get busy so you may not be able to just walk in. We stayed at the Hillsdale hotel and it was a short walk from there and overall it seemed it was centrally located. I would eat here again if... More

Went in last weekend, it's been a while since we last visited and sorry to see that the previous owner, a big character who made a visit worthwhile, has sold out to a pub chain. It's nice enough inside and service is good but the White Lion has lost its uniqueness. One of the things we like about Ambleside is... More

Lovely restaurant discovered here, the waiting staff were very attentive and extremely pleasant. The premises were very clean and the toilets very good, the handwash used had a lovely fragrance too. Food was lovely, would suggest slightly bigger portions of extras I felt the portion of chips and dauphinoise potatoes were not enough. Recommended hotel just off M6. Far better... More
