There is limited parking next to the pub but it’s very close to the centre of Bowness. The choice of food is good: some mains come with a choice of style of potatoes (chunky chips / new / mash) and either salad or veg. There are 2 sections of seating, one where dogs are allowed. The service was efficient and... More

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

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
