Good food but too noisy

Went here with my friend for dinner about 7ish. Food was very nice but didn't want to linger as the restaurant was very noisy. Such a shame as the staff were lovely but the noise level was too much.

Only called for a drink on our walk about but seemed a lovely place with plenty of outside seating area. And nice views if the downstairs area and outside area are anything to go by then I would imagine the accommodation would be very nice too.

We had drinks in the beer garden here during the only 2 hours of sun during our trip. Pricey but delicious and a lovely view to boot!

Visited her as a couple for drinks while we walked round Windermere. We chose seats outside as the weather was nice. The place appeared really nice. Drinks were a bit pricey. Saw food come out for other people which looked really nice. Would definitely visit again and maybe have food next time

Ate here whilst visiting the Lakes for a catch up with some friends who live locally at their recommendation. Using the adage 'eat where the locals eat', we arrived having being booked in by our hosts and were sat down by the friendly staff. A good selection of dishes were available with a daily specials board too; I would regard... More

Beautiful gardens and ideal location just behind the Main Street/ shops but expensive for Cumbria. £3.20 for a lemonade (wouldn't even pay that in a pub in London) and over £5 for a pint. Food looked nice but arrived at 8.50pm and the kitchen had stopped taking orders

I do not normally reply to reviews as most tripadvisor reviews are not normally subjective, however on this occasion felt it necessary. £3.20 for a pint of lemonade is not expensive in this area, you will find us cheaper than many other pubs in the area.
