I had reserved all 6 rooms at the Gilpin Bridge for us gents the night before my wedding (in Bowness) 5 months in advance. I had also booked a range of cars to pick us up from the hotel in the morning to take us to Bowness. With 2 months to go I called back in to the Gilpin to... More

We travelled from Australia for a family reunion. Couldn't get in our room as the internet was not working and they didn't know which rooms we were in. No complimentary drink while we waited, we had to pay for them. Customer service very poor. It felt like they were doing us a favour by letting us stay there! Food at... More

This is one the worst experiences I have had The rooms are tiny and there is nowhere to hang your clothes apart from a small rail above the kettle! My partner and I booked in at 3.30 the lady took payment and showed us to our room. We ate there which was pretty mediocre. At 10.30 pm there was a... More

I ate in here for the first time the other day and thought the food was lovely. The lady working was very friendly but seemed a bit rushed off her feet and perhaps could have done with an extra pair of hands although she handled it well. Prices were very good and one of the better prices pubs in this... More

We first visited this pub just after it had been refurbished and although the service was very slow the food was ok and we put it down to early days. However a second visit with family , the service was awful, very slow, 2 of the 4 meals were inedible. No charge was made for these meals, however the only... More

Found this place purely by chance on our way to Windermere. Stopped of for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our meals.The weather was awful, raining hard and on entering the pub found it to have a cozy welcoming atmosphere. We ordered coffees to begin and these were served with what appeared to be small home made shortbread biscuits.After ordering our lunch,... More

Dropped in for lunch at the end of a long walk, so much in need of sustenance. Food and drink very good - tasty chicken pie, great Robinsons beer. Mine host is either a grumpy soul, or was having a really bad day. Not a happy bunny; didn't want to be working it seems - and didn't mind his customers... More

We dropped in on our way North and happened across this hidden gem. Friendly welcome and nice clean surroundings. Sat on the deep leather sofas whilst we had a drink and selected our meals. Home made fish cakes and steak and ale pie were superb. Definitely give this a try if you're in the area.

On our way back from Benbecula my 2 daughters, husband, and myself stayed the night at the Gilpin. It is a super place to stay, the food was fantastic, and it was very clean. The young lady that was serving behind the bar was multi tasking to say the least, serving behind the bar, waiting on, delivering the meals to... More

Went to this pub for a drink and some food, location is ok if you're in that neck of the woods. Bar staff not what you would call friendly in fact I'd go as far as to say I was made to feel like I should grovel to get served! The was some horrible fishy smells and I'm not sure... More
