Perfect location

Only ever visited for food and drinks, good range on the menu and service. The location is fantastic right on the edge on lake Windermere, we had great weather and spent the afternoon on the garden swing chairs drinking pimms and completely relaxed.

I am a vegetarian and Wateredge do some really good veggie food. Eating with the views of the lake either in or outdoors is a lovely experience.

Stopped off here for a late lunch and couldn't have found a better place. The staff were very friendly and the serve was great. Ordered a burger and chips which I couldn't fault as typical bar food. Freshly cooked and served hot, would definitely recommend. Would love to go in the summer for the views of the lake.

Been here many times. Summer drinks outside on the lawn overlooking the lake and winter drinks inside by the fire. Lovely food and really friendly staff. Great.

We found the Wateredge Inn in a pub good dining guide so were looking forward to a nice light meal. The table service was excellent, the lower bar (dog friendly) had a nice fire but lacked character. The food was a disappointment. I ordered whitebait, when it came it appeared to have been filleted, the fish was flat and covered... More

We ate here as a couple on a Saturday lunch time having been tempted by the entry in the Good Pub Guide. The food was good - we tried the lamb hot pot and fish pie. Both were nicely done, good sized portions but not cheap - paying for the location I guess. There was a good selection of six... More

Great location on the edge of Windermere and close to the pier. We were here with the family and really enjoyed the evening. Very cosy, real fires burning, friendly staff and above all a great menu at reasonable prices. We had a scallop starter followed by lamb chops and ballottine of chicken, all delicious. The children's food was also nicely... More

In a great location right on the lake. Fantastic in summer with all of the outside tables. Quick drink on a winters night. Loads of choices of beer. Bit quiet bearing in mind it was a Saturday night. Live music. Wifi was a bit hit and miss. Nice place.

We were staying nearby and decided to drop in for a pint and a meal based on it being in the Good Pub Guide. The pub is very much modernized and hardly "cosy". The Real Ale selection is OK but not as good or wide as many nearby pubs. One of the staff (one of the barmen on duty that... More
