Dear Kathy B, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your opinion, it is greatly appreciated. I am slightly disappointed by this review as we do have alternative seating available away from any of the aforementioned sports, which as you mentioned was locked, as it is our breakfast area, which we do from time to time use...

Although initially disappointed we left... More

This was the first pub we stopped in for a spot of lunch in Windermere and it as love at first bite. 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. Their menu is standard pub food... More

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.
