We popped in for a quick snifter whilst waiting for a table at Lucy's Restaurant. It's a pleasant, quirky place where I'd certainly drink again, and perhaps eat too, but the service seemed generally a bit disorganised, lacking finesse.

We came here recently for a bite to eat and some cocktails. For the sake of fairness, the service was good and the food was alright (just alright). HOWEVER!! Both food and drink were horrendously overpriced for what you got, i.e. watered-down cocktails for nearly £7, and a tiny dish of deep fried calimari rings for £6. The food isn't... More

Popped in after a meal out. Nice cocktails in quirky surroundings. Menu looked ok, but we didn't stay long enough in the area to try.

An exciting tapas menu fulfilled by true culinary craftsmanship - the food was a delight. The service was excellent, attentive, friendly but not overbearing. I recommend this to carnivores and veggies alike.

We pitched up late on a busy Friday night in Ambleside. Lucy4 accommodated us hungry travellers with ease. We went for a huge selection from the tapas menu. Lots to choose from and great wines too. We finished the night off with a few cocktails. Very friendly staff, lovely environment and chilled tunes. Perfect.

Ambience great and staff welcoming and informative about cocktail menu. Good news was that although the cocktails were cocktail price, the mocktails weren't at £2.50 each.

Was here last Saturday night for a post curry drink. After the very friendly and knowledgeable host had explained in great detail his fine selection of red wines we opted for a great bottle of Prosseco. As it was late at night it was pretty dark outside and alley full of pot holes etc , not very safe after a... More

Slightly quirky bistro type food which is absolutely delicious and the staff are all really helpful and pleasant. The atmosphere is relaxed and this is a great place to eat in Ambleside.

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.
