Never fails to provide excellent food or service at a very reasonable price. Outside seating is very good.

Had lunch at the Wateredge last week having discovered by walking around the town. The whitebait looked so good, so we all ordered this, and I have to say it was really excellent. A very large portion, complete with superb home made tartare sauce and a nice side salad. Although we only ordered the one dish each, this was very... More

Lovely pub,, with great views, which probably explains why the prices were so high. We had drinks for four and paid £18 (only two alcoholic ones) - we didn't eat here but the food looked nice. We wouldn't return though because of the prices. Having been to many other places with far superior views, I think this pub is overcharging.

Having visited the Wateredge inn with my wife and two young daughters. The position of the inn is undeniably stunning. This is where, in my opinion, the management feels it can charge premium prices for very average food. At £12.95 for fish and chips I expected better. Having said that the staff were happy and helpful. On our weeks holiday... More

Love this pub and it's setting. Been everytime I've visited Ambleside. Enjoyed lunch here on Thursday. A little pricey but you pay for the setting. Typical pub grub.

We came for an evening meal on a beautiful evening. They were very busy but the food came quickly. My husband ordered a chicken curry which was ok but there wasn't much chicken in there. We ordered hummus and flat bread to share with our son but it had the consistency of concrete so it went back. We got our... More
