The rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean and spacious and the staff are friendly. It's in a great location in the heart of Ambleside with numerous restaurants on the doorstep and plenty of good walks nearby. Good value and would definitely recommend.

We had lunch here recently as we were in the area, and didn't know what to expect - but it ended up being a great day out! It was clean and inviting, and the staff were friendly and welcoming, and couldn't do enough to make our children happy! We sat outside and enjoyed the sun, and the food was delicious!... More

From start to finish this was perfect. Rooms fresh and clean ( had doubts about over looking the beer garden but when my head hit the pillow i was out cold). The food and service was great with a really great choice of red wine. Will be back to do it again....,

We went here for dinner on the last night of our stay in Ambleside. The atmosphere was lively, with lots of other tourists and locals sat in the outside area. The staff were excellent, allowing us to try ales before we decided which to buy, and extremely accommodating when I chose to change some elements of my meal for alternatives.... More

Had a lovely stay at the newly revamped white lion. New decor is just what it needed with the bathrooms now being a credit rather than the disappointment they used to be. Had a nice meal in the evening as well. Will definitely be returning again soon :-)

We had two lunches here during our stay in the Lake District this year and both were excellent, particularly the chicken wings and fish & chips. One of the deciding factors for visiting here was it's dog friendliness not just outside but inside too. Being on holiday and having our dog with us made this a huge bonus for us.... More
