This inn/ pub is in a good location in the town, with lots of outdoor seating for food and drinks as well as nice indoor areas. It's not cheap, but you are in the lakes. The sandwiches large and tasty, but the menu doesn't describe them very well. A ham sandwich is actually ham and tomato, the egg sandwich is... More

Great food, atmosphere and staff. Thoroughly recommended. We enjoyed the visit on Saturday night so much that we went back on Sunday. The fish and chips are a must with the duck spring rolls for starters. We really enjoyed the local beer too.

This is an excellent place to stay for a visit to Windermere. Clean, comfortable rooms although the 'petite' we had was just that. The food in their restaurant was really outstanding. Friendly & helpful staff made the stay really pleasant. Parking was available. However, if you have trouble walking. especially up hill from the piers, please be warned.

We have just returned from a week in the Lakes and stopped very near Bowness. We had Sunday lunch here in the beer garden which was very nice. Then we returned on a weekday evening and had another lovely meal inside. We had a small dog (pug) who was welcome inside and out and I found all of the bar... More

We went here whilst on our first holiday with our dog and not only did they have wonderful food, but they also had really big parasols to eat under in the shade - very important to those of us that struggle with really hot sunny weather! The dog was able to lay on the grass next to the table and... More

We had booked room 14 in the gatehouse for three nights at the beginning of this week at a cost of £150 per night believing it to be a quieter suite away from the main building. This was our first break away as a couple for a number of years and we were planning to have some relaxing quality time... More

On the way uphill to our hotel ...and the weather was great ...and the outside seating areas at The Angel Inn looked very inviting.... So ...we joined the already busy tables and got on amongst the atmosphere.....!
