I have just returned from a weekend in Windermere with my husband and friends. This place was recommended to us for a nice meal out on the Saturday night. We completely enjoyed the food here. We will definitely be returning soon!

Stayed here with my husband and little dog, lovely friendly staff and lovely surroundings. Sat outside amongst the regulars who were all friendly then had a meal on both nights in the bar and the food was beautiful, along with the lovely wines and beers on offer, it was busy all the time but still felt like we had enough...

The Watermill has a great range of well-kept beer. Dogs are welcome and both bars have woodstoves which is a great comfort in the winter. There is plenty of outdoor space for warm days. Sadly on two recent visits the quality of the food has been poor and yesterday worse than poor. Several ingredients (salsa, mushrooms) had run out and... More

Had a really nice meal, Sirloin steaks done to perfection with all the trimmings here, but the surprise was the chose of real ales! Which they can serve in 1/3rd. pint glasses. Genius! You can try loads without getting smashed. Another reason to return to the Lakes!

Our son and daughter in law treated us to tea here. I had fish which was fresh and with good chips. The pub was busy and parking was not easy. The Staff were pleasant and there were a few interesting items on the menu. The pub had a good atmosphere

Visited on a week day for lunch. Received a warm welcome and a very good menu selection. The place has ambience, the barmaid was delightfully friendly and there were plenty of nice places/areas to sit inside and out. The sun was shining during out visit so we planted ourselves on the terrace overlooking the water. Highly recommend the fish platter.... More

I stayed for two nights with my dog Coco and had a lovely time. Staff are very friendly and we were both made welcome. I can't vouch for the beer (I don't drink), but the breakfasts and evening meals were delicious. Great base to explore the area.
