Chose to stay here on the off-chance as many other Lakeland Inns were either pricey of full. It was a smart move because we both thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Only booked for a couple of nights but the weather along with the so far enjoyable stay here saw me asking the management for an extension... we were lucky as our... More

We recently stayed in the tiny Hamlet of INGS with our Black Lab. On a number of occasions during our weeks stay we visited the Watermill Inn for either drinks or drinks and food, I can honestly say that the pub was excellent in both areas. The pub is separated into a dog friendly side and a people friendly side.... More

This is our 3rd visit and wont be our last. Lovely clean large rooms even though it was a dog friendly room, no evidence of previous occupants. Staff very friendly even when rushed off their feet, which they are often are as does become very busy. Ate both evenings in restaurant, food was fantastic and great choice, dog was supplied... More

Booked into room 8 again this time for my birthday surprise. Ate well, drank lots of collie wobbles, slept well and thoroughly enjoyed it, so did jack the dog. Even sorted my fathers day present with a gift pack of beers. We'll be back .

Called in a couple of times for beer after walking on the fells, the choice of beer brilliant! Called in once this trip to eat, the choice not as wide as previous visits, and the portions smaller but still good value, and VERY Dog friendly, I would recommend This establishment.

This pub takes great care in making great beer, stop off on the road into Windemere and you wont be disappointed. This is high quality beer, and worth a little stop off. The food is of similar quality, so worth the visit.

We called in on our way home.... the pub is in a pleasant setting and appears to be very well cared for. Parking is very tight and there were lots of cars parked on the grass verges outside. We were given a warm greeting by the barman ( love the dreadlocks ! ) and found ourselves a nice cosy table.... More

We booked to stay here for three nights with our two Jack Russells and got the last available room, No. 5. This was on the second floor, up in the eaves, and as well as a double bed had a single bed. This meant that the room was rather cramped and airless, we had to keep the windows wide open... More
