Had a one night stop over here on the way down south. It was a priority to find somewhere we could take our Jack Russell terrier and the Watermill was totally dog friendly. Our dog sat with us in the bar while we had a very good evening meal - generous portions of hearty pub grub and some excellent wine.... More

We walked from Windermere to Ings simply to visit this pub. We were impressed by the very, friendly staff. The pub was spotless and very cosy. We bought a gift pack of their own beers and enjoyed a coffee before the walk back. We are now planning to visit in the New Year for a few nights stay.

Stayed here while walking in The Lakes. Very friendly staff with a great range of real ales and good food. I have no hesitation in recommending this Inn. A better wifi connection would be welcome but then again - a couple of days without emails might be welcome!

We checked in to The Watermill Inn on Tuesday 28th October 2014 for a short "minimoon" break after getting married at Brig o' Doon House Hotel in Ayrshire. We felt a little guilty that our wee pet spaniel Benji wasn't involved in the wedding celebrations, so we decided that a wee dog-friendly holiday was in order. It was Benji's first... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor we found The Watermill, and what a find! A truly lovely Lakeland Inn where we'll behaved dogs are welcomed with water and treats. The humans are treated equally as well! Food superb, service excellent. Rooms comfy with all you need for a stay. Position is great for access to usual Lakes places but also far enough... More

From the moment we walked through the door at the Watermill Inn and Brewery company we felt at home. Friendly welcomes make all the difference and as soon as we checked into room 8 which was perfectly appointed, clean and tidy, we were ready to enjoy the rest of your holiday. We couldn't fault the place, lovely home cooked food... More

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!
