Description: Lucy4 Wine Bar & Bistro is tucked away in the backstreets of Ambleside and is a combination of cockt4ils, wines, continental and local bottled beers, soft drinks, together with a wide range of mix and match style food ... it's not exactly tapas in that the portions are bigger than tapas and a little more interesting in variety. It's a fun and fiendish place 4 everyone ... Ideal 4 Individuals, Perfect 4 Parties, Cosy 4 Couples and Fun 4 Families. Live Acoustic guitar most Sundays from 9pm. Open daily from 5pm and last food orders at 10.30pm. Set on two levels, with entrances at both - outside decking area as well as small, compact bar area. Friendly staff, all in all an interestingly, different dining experience - if you do anything ... do a chocolate fondue - be a Devil and try Lucy4!

“great cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

we go here every time we visit ambleside for cocktails, they are so good and i feel value for money, we have never eaten here, why i dont know, the only down i have had was the rose wine was £7 a glass which i think is excessive, we look forward to going each time we visit

“Funky, nuts, delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

A really funky little tapas bar. Authentic Spanish staff - great touch. Food was absolutely fantastic (we are foodies) very flavoursome. Décor is fun and funky. Owner nuts but in a good way! Great little place, if only it was on our doorstep! highly recommend.

“Yummy Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Really good quality Tapas in a slightly quirky little place. Enjoyed our meal here, food was something a little different.

“One of our favourites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Visited the restaurant with my partner and 18 year old son last night, this is one of our favourite places to eat in Ambleside, again another lovely tapas meal .. we had several dishes shared between us .. tortilla chips with the yoghurt and honey dip is always one of my choices .. we had that, steak strips, pigeon, koftas, garlic bread, quesdilla's, italian skinnys (fries with cheese and pancetta) lemon and rosemary potatoes and pork baby ribs that are to die for !!! .. all of this was plenty for the 3 of us and no pudding room left but we normally choose the sharing chocolate fondue .. all of the food, 2 cokes, 2 mojito cocktails and 2 gin and tonics all came to just under £75 ... it was again a lovely meal .. the ambience in the restaurant is always pleasant and the place was quite busy last night .. the staff were very attentive and there were no long waiting times for any food. another lovely visit to Lucy4.
