Fab hotel, great if you're thinking of stopping for a couple nights. Just a short walk from Lake Windermere and a handful of shops and restaurants to suit everyone's taste. Would definitely visit again, the cooked breakfast is great too...

Lovely place, friendly staff but did have a problem with my meal which put my family off their meals and the staff were pleasant and refunded our meals due to the mishap but do recommend. I believe that the atmosphere was good and a welcoming place

We stopped here for my sisters 30th so 2 couples stopping here. The rooms were lovely and well equipped. The breakfast was great and filled us up for the day. It was close to all amenities and the lake. I left my phone charger in my room and when I rang them and asked if they would post it, they... More

Situation just off the main town. Nice pleasant pub not too quite, not too busy. Prices are very reasonable. Nice friendly atmosphere. Good range of drinks. Friendly helpful staff. Rooms are available. Pool table in back.

The Royal Oak is 2 minutes walk from the lake. Bowness itself is a lovely place. However we found it very expensive especially for alcoholic drinks £9.20 in one pub for a pint of cider and a pint of lager. The room was small, clean but very average. We were on the top floor and could not get free wi... More

The pub itself is very cosy and warm. There was a lovely fireplace next to where we sat and it was very welcoming on a cold March day. I chose to eat the fish and chips, which was beautiful. My partner had the steak and ale pie, which he highly recommends. Very reasonably priced, and a fab drinks selection. Excellent... More

Lovely pub, fun and friendly with a pool table, great room, clean but quite small. Parking outside. Fab food, breakfast was made to order and friendly staff. Had a great stay. Recommend it. Very central location.

We have eaten here a number of times as it is very welcoming to the dog. The food is fine, I particularly like the steak and the staff are friendly and chatty. The pub itself is a lot smaller than it looks from the outside and is very basic - wooden floors, lots of stools, pool table, darts and bright... More
