We called in here for lunch with friends and our children. We enjoyed lovely lunches of soups and baguettes. The chips were fantastic! The prices were reasonable and it was very comfy. The staff were welcoming and we felt quite at home. Recommend it.

Room lovely and clean, great staff good food and definitely stay again! Only comment would be a later breakfast or option of room service as breakfast was between 8.30 and 9.30 and would liked the option for a lay in or to eat in our room, that said we would still stay again! many thanks Shmichael.

Beautiful tasty food didn't have to wait too long and good value for money. Would return when next visiting Bowness. Would recommend the Gammon and sticky toffee pudding also lots of things for children to pick and friendly staff.

Staying in Bowness for a few days we fancied some wholesome pub grub and were not disappointed. The unassuming exterior belies the delicious food and friendly bonhomie they serve up here. The food is of restaurant quality served in friendly, comfortable contemporary pub surroundings. Prices were a little higher than the mass market pub chains but reflective of the quality... More

Had great food here. Prices range from £8.95 for roast meal. Other meals £ 10.45 up to £19.00 for the beef. Big portions, just what you need after a day on the fells. Can order food up to 9pm, most places in BBowness not serving food at that time.Also nice selection of hand pulled beers. Friendly helpful staff.

Visited this pub whilst staying in the local area. Our son who has special needs is mad on football. Last night while at the pub, one of the staff kindly put the footy on for him and turned up the volume, even though they don't normally show the football matches! This meant my Husband and I could enjoy a nice... More

Ate here one quiet Feb evening. Food was ordered at the bar but we couldn't open a tab for drinks - not sure why that is, seems old fashioned or perhaps untrustworthy due to touristy location! Food came quickly and was ok for a pub meal. Sadly nothing special, bowl of veg was half over cooked and half under cooked.... More

A lovely winter weekend spent at The Albert. Friendly staff at this very busy hotel/pub were welcoming and very helpful. The room was clean and well presented, but a little small. We ate downstairs on the first night, the portions are huge and great value. Breakfast was good I recommend the pancakes they are amazing. This hotel is central in... More
