Stayed here for one night and a couple of days Lakes walking. Our third visit and just as good as previous stays. Beer and food excellent as usual, busier than before, as it was Easter school holidays, but we still felt welcomed, especially our Labrador. We had room 6 for the first time and being on the 2nd floor, it... More

Booked to stay at the Watermill for a couple of days as a base for visiting Lake District attractions. Suffice to say we enjoyed the Watermill so much I asked if we could hang on to our room for a few more days. The pub is just off the main road in what was once the original road, so it's... More

Lovely place in a beautiful setting, the food is amazing at a reasonable price. A very friendly place who also welcomes dogs. I've visited a couple of times and would recommend to anyone in the Lake District. Walkers also welcomed. Local ales on draught.

We stayed here over the Easter weekend and absolutely loved the place. We tried to book in here last year but it was booked up and I can now see why. The accommodation is clean and the rooms are big enough to accommodate both of us and our dog who we took with us. They say the inn is dog... More

Lovely spot for a beer. It's close to a lovely walk that gives you great views over towards Windermere. The pub is great, lovely food and beer.....even better that it's dog friendly. It's my second visit to this place in two months and I have to say it's consistently good. We didn't eat there this visit but the good still... More

Fantastic venue for a weekend away with K9 members of the family. Great selection of real ales (better ones brewed on site) good food, dog loving staff and surrounded by other dog loving families. Will definitely be returning next year.

Enjoyed an early tea (4ish) here in the Easter holidays. The menu was really good, lots of choice and the food portions were generous. Kids meal was huge! The quality of the food was really good. The staff were friendly and it was clean. It is baby friendly with high chairs. My only disappointment was that we didn't have time... More

Called in The Watermill for a lunchtime pint and snack while working nearby with a workmate. A lovely pub, log fire roaring away, would have been easy to stay the afternoon! Fine choice of real ales brewed on site with some great names ! We had a sausage ciabatta which was very tasty. Bar staff friendly and chatty. Would like... More

We stopped off here today for lunch. It was very busy - although according to our waitress it was quiet compared to in season. We both chose fish and chips and wow what a good choice. It was excellent- best chips I've had in a long time, actually tasted of potatoe. The fish was delicious in a lovely crisp batter.... More

We really enjoyed our experience at the Watermill Inn, we had a first class evening meal and the real ales were excellent according to my partner. The desserts were good too, overall a relaxed enjoyable, reasonably priced evening.
