Not the smartest pub but very welcoming and comfortable....nice staff and very convenient and unpretentious....and you don't have to book before hand.

This place was very busy when we arrived but did eventually become quieter when people who had eaten left. I personally do not like huge TV screens with sport on them but others in the pub obviously did. The service was excellent and the food was very good for the price.

We ate here whilst on holiday in Windermere. The staff were helpful and friendly. However, the food, (chicken burgers, chips and onion rings) were cooked OK, but was bland and although the onion rings looked impressive, they were unfortunately greasy and the onion inside was a bit hard. The decor inside the pub is dated and could do with replacing.... More

After a long drive my husband and I decided to have a quick dinner at the nearest pub to our B and B, which was the Grey Walls Hotel. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful but the dining area which were tables near the bar was loud and not at all relaxing, with the sports channel blaring and... More

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...

Myself and my boyfriend liked the look of here from the first day we arrived and were wandering about, so decided to pop in on Friday night for some food. We got there about 8pm, were welcomed by extremely friendly guys at the bar. Ordered our food, all of it looked great, ordered some drinks which were priced reasonably also.... More
