“Really good way to see all the Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Despite many trips to the Lake District I had never been on the Lake Cruise but it was a very wet afternoon so it seemed a good option. It was - excellent views of the whole lake whilst enjoying a very good cup of tea

“Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This pub has superb waterside location and is very nicely appointed. Be careful of the bar prices though as a double malt and glass wine cost me £13.55!

“Expensive”

Very expensive, food not that exceptional for the price, but great location. More parking spaces needed, would not go there again

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

This sits in a great location. Was very busy though and a few people left due the the size of queue for food and drink. We will return there for a meal next time we visit.

“Wonderview views of Lakeland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

just to south of Ambleside at head of the Lake. Pier for Lake cruises. Borrans park is worth a visit and Wateredge Hotel has good views of Lake and fells from bar/lounge
