We were a group of five local girls at the start of a night out in bowness so we were not drunk or loud or on a hen night and we were wearing flat sandals and maxi dresses but for some reason the nasty lady door person refused us access as we were apparently a large single sex group all... More

Traditional pub, in a place full of "bars" which we loved. Friendly with good selection of beers. We had hoped to eat there one night but there was no vegetarian option (other than rolls, jacket potato or ploughmans) for a meal rather than a light lunch. Nevertheless for drinkers and carnivores sure it's great!

Away from the main drag, it was a lucky find. Bowness isn't short of eateries but this must be among the best, as suggested by the number of customers on a Tuesday lunchtime. The weather was fine so we ate outside. We had the 'special' - large portions of cod goujons, chips, mushy peas and salad, accompanied by Robinson's Unicorn.... More

Fascinating Robinson's pub. Good beer and good food. The menu includes British favourites, a choice of curries and other international dishes. Pork pie and scratchings is a good way to start. Lamb Henry is succulent. Good chips. Good portions - plates could be a little bigger. Well kept beers. But the star of the show is the building itself. Wonderful... More

I can't speak for the other menu items but the ploughman's lunch I had was an enormous plateful of salads,cheese, ham, egg, pickle and a decent warm bread roll. All fresh and tasty... No need to go hungry here. Not so happy with my pint of Old Rosie. I live a few miles from the place Rosie is made and... More
