Walked the Ambleside, Troutbeck, Wansfell Pike, Ambleside circular. Called in at the Mortal Man en route for lunch. As per usual the food was good, the Loughrigg Ale exceptional and the staff their usual self. I always get the impression here that the bar staff view the customers as some sort of inconvenience. Called here many times and their attitude... More

Room 6 should be avoided at all costs. The fire exit actually leads other residents through your bathroom, to the exit door. Also this is clearly a 'dog friendly' room as the smell of wet dog was really really strong. I appreciate this is a very old building so the plumbing rattles and bangs that kept us awake all through... More

Popped in after a drive around looking for a nice pub to have dinner as most places in Ambleside and Windermere become to impersonal!

This was without question the best place we ate during a recent stay in the Lakes with my parents and brother. We had heard good things about it, and saved it for our final evening, but didn't book a table, assuming we'd have no problem on a Sunday evening. In fact, it was really busy.... but the staff were really... More

I have just spent a short 2night break at the Mortal Man. Arrived mid afternoon and was checked in by the boss who also showed us a round the hotel when we said it was our 1st visit. The hotel is old (think it goes back to the 17th century ) Our room was a good size It was clean... More

We booked a last minute 2 night deal and were not sure what to expect. The setting is lovely with good views and plenty of walks from the hotel. Our room was large, clean and warm and yes the bathroom could be described as "tired" but served its purpose. We ate in the bar both evenings and were impressed by... More

We only stayed 1 night but the team that work there were very welcoming. The staff were particularly helpful and dog friendly in all aspects. Word to wise dog owners take a torch for evening walks it is the countryside. Food is a little bit different to usual 'pub grub' which was a lovely treat, portions and quality was spot... More

A lovely pit stop after a long walk - good wine and ale on offer. We sat in the beer garden as the weather was good. Dog friendly which is a bonus!! We didn't have food but it looked good and we intend to return to find out!!
