We had ordered sandwiches and chips and from the start we noticed the very generous portion sizes given. Consequently, we ate there 4 out of the 5 nights we stayed in Windermere.

What a fantastic family friendly pub. we went here with our two children 4 and 6.There was lots of choice on the menu, not your typical pub menu! The food was superb, there was plenty of choice for the children too.. The owners and staff were very friendly.

Visited the restaurant/pub and had something to eat, the food was excellent, the service good and the atmosphere good too. I would not hesitate to recommend this place for something to eat. Had we ate there on our first night in Windermere I would have had no hesitation in eating here again. The menu has a good choice and there... More
