Great food, well cooked, super service, good wines, beers and cocktails. All together a really good night. Only problem was deciding what to drink and eat. For a restaurant even the wines were good value. Views over Windermere just added to the atmosphere!

Stopped off for a quick drink while waiting for the return boat trip. This place is just over the main road from where the boats stop at Waterhead for Ambleside

Walk down to this place with caution. We went there having walked down from ambleside centre, got there just before 8 to be told no more non residents that night. Plenty more restaurants fortunately so they got my money instead.

We booked a table here for Sunday evening and were immediately impressed by the appearance of the bar area and selection of beers and courteous staff. The restaurant is across the road from the lake with uninterrupted views and only a very short distance from the steamer piers. The hotel/restaurant is well decorated and furnished and appears to be marketed... More

Only popped in for a beer - good choice of venue as there were 6 real ales on the bar including a stout which was a perfect pint. Price was about £3.50 but it was a well kept beer and the view back over the lake is spectacular. Well worth a visit.
