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!

Manageress Sam has this place buzzing! We last visited a year ago on our annual Lakes pilgrimage and had a lovely meal though the atmosphere was lacking a little. What a difference this time. The staff were all brilliant, the food lovely and the decor trendy....apart from the "Rose Lampshade". However this caused much amusement, all taken in excellent humour... More

Every time we've been to Ambleside we head to Lucy4's and have always had a great evening in relaxing surroundings.....but now the layout has changed somewhat, gone are the comfy leather settee's where strangers chilled and chatted together whilst sipping their drinks. The menu has changed to be more conservative (less choice) and gone are the large selection of diverse... More

After walking round Ambleside and being told everything was fully booked we stumbled across Lucy's. Again no tables available with them so they signposted us to Lucy 4. We were welcomed by a lovely 'Emma Thompson' lookalike waitress who was equally as lovely. Really cozy place, efficient and appropriately attentive service and great atmosphere. To start we had amazing tortilla... More

Great food at a reasonable price, with a good selection of local beer as well. We chose the Tapas menu and all five of us really enjoyed it.

What has happened to LUCY 4's. It used to be great but on a visit last weekend was surprised to find it half empty, cold and the whole place smelt of damp. The food was also cold, service slow, and menu limited. Should have guessed from when we walked in down a dark alley, past the bins and slipped on... More

Went to this fabulous little restaurant with family. There was a private party downstairs, and we had booked a table. We were ushered upstairs and it was really fabulous. It is a tapas style restaurant and I cannot fault the food at all, or the service. The menu was slightly confusing at first, but the waiter came and explained it... More

Like Pranksterinc, we went to Lucy 4 on Saturday 27 September. We had been lots of times before and were impressed by the choices. As vegetarians, we were accompanied by some non vegetarian friends, one of whom was celebrating a major birthday, and we assured them the choices in Lucy 4 would meet everyone's needs. I went in on the... More

Tucked away in the middle of the town this was a brilliant find to celebrate an anniversary! We sat in the 'cellar' and were amazed by the brilliant service from 'Aussie' Sam! She explained everything to us - food served piping hot & wine in a cooler next to the candle! A wonderful rustic place with a brilliant atmosphere. After... More

So very disappointing! What has happened to Luci4s? We have had some fabulous meals and evenings out in the Ambleside wine bar over the years but last night was such a huge disappointment that we will no longer bother and certainly won't be recommending it to any of our friends any more. Not having been in the Lake District for... More
