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 stayed here for one night in two rooms with a shared bathroom. We appreciated the booking as it tricky to find place to stay for one night only at a weekend in the Lake District. Our rooms were spotless, with comfortable beds. The room wasn't grand or very large but we would not have expected this from pub style... More

Spent a week in Bowness recently and visited the pub several times. Always happy with the service. Good wine and choice of local beers. Free wifi - excellent connection! Didn't eat here on this visit but have have in the past. Never had any complaints. Nice atmosphere. Will definitely visit again.

Stayed at this pub for two nights! It was great. Lovely friendly staff and breakfast was really good! The room had a shared bathroom which was spotless. The room was lovely and clean! Would recommend this place! We didn't eat in the evening but you get 10% off if you do.
