Description: Lucy4 Wine Bar & Bistro is tucked away in the backstreets of Ambleside and is a combination of cockt4ils, wines, continental and local bottled beers, soft drinks, together with a wide range of mix and match style food ... it's not exactly tapas in that the portions are bigger than tapas and a little more interesting in variety. It's a fun and fiendish place 4 everyone ... Ideal 4 Individuals, Perfect 4 Parties, Cosy 4 Couples and Fun 4 Families. Live Acoustic guitar most Sundays from 9pm. Open daily from 5pm and last food orders at 10.30pm. Set on two levels, with entrances at both - outside decking area as well as small, compact bar area. Friendly staff, all in all an interestingly, different dining experience - if you do anything ... do a chocolate fondue - be a Devil and try Lucy4!

Service was slow, but charming and the choice was very good, including vegetarian options. Also good wine and bottled beer selection.

We had just a glass of wine here, time didn't allow for a meal, but sitting outside and being able to choose from a large variety of good quality wines per glass was a pleasant surprise. I can recommend it for a visit!

We arrived at Lucy4's having walked past once already hoping for a table to become available. The couple at the table told us quite clearly "don't order the food, but the drinks are good" and given we wanted an evening drinking cocktails we took their seats and patiently waited. After five or so minutes I went into the bar which... More

Meal was reasonable but we had better in our week in Amble side. Chose about 6 Tapas and were all OK but nothing special. The board outside advertises a special experience but we must have missed it!

We had a reservation for 8pm on a Sunday evening and arrived to find the restaurant very quiet with only two other tables occupied in the section where we were seated. We were provided with menus but waited a considerable time to be asked if we wanted drinks and having ordered a cocktail and glass of wine there was another... More

Far too cramped, one of our party had to stand up every 2 minutes to let the staff pass to serve good to the other table. They forgot about us so couldn't order more drinks or ask for our desert. No disabled facilities despite requesting this on booking. Ladies, upstairs and card terminal only available upstairs; our party member, in... More

My sister booked a table for twelve of us at Lucy4 based on it's glowing web site and reviews , for dinner on a Saturday night in June. We were under the impression that on arrival we could enjoy cocktails in the bar before being seated. Far from it ! We were ushered into a dank basement room where we... More

Where to start. Served walnut bread to a lady with a nut allergy despite being pre warned and having that acknowledged by email. Fortunately someone else tasted it first. Waited an hour and a half between main course and desserts. Had to ask to order drinks. Only served one round then ignored us pretty much for the rest of the... More

I have just got back from a hen weekend in the Lake District and for the Saturday evening we decided to get a taxi into Ambleside and go to Lucy 4's. We were a party of 12 that included a person who relied heavily on a wheelchair and another who had a nut allergy. This meal had been pre-booked so... More
