We popped in (or more correctly outside) for lunch on a lovely day in Ambleside. The hotel is in the Main Street through Ambleside and has seating outside. The menu carries a large range of food, everything for light bites to main meals and sweets. The hotel itself is large airy and pleasant. The bar carries a good variety of lagers, beers and spirits and when we payed it a visit carried a number of good quality real ales. As it was lunch we both decided to go for the pulled pork in baked potato, onion rings and chunky chips. The premises operate an order and pay at the bar system and the service is pleasant and courteous. Having ordered and collected drinks the food followed very quickly after. The presentation of the food was plain and simple, yet appetising and was very good. At under £20 for the two meals it was very good value and I would definitely go back again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If you're looking for a hotel in the Lake District, this Cumbria lodge is ideal. Set in scenic Ambleside at the head of Windermere, England's biggest lake, it's easy to reach from the M6. Nearby Windermere Station is just a 15-minute drive away. From Ambleside, it's easy to explore Windermere's 26-mile long coastline on foot, by car or by bike. Discover the lake's great choice of water sports, or treat the family to a launch or steamer trip across its magnificent waters. Just an hour's spectacular drive away is Scaffel Pike - England's highest mountain and a beautiful, breathtaking hike. Also in easy reach are Stock Ghyll Force, an awesome 70-foot waterfall; and Hill Top - Beatrix Potter's 17th-century farmhouse and a time capsule of her life. On rainy days, head for mock-gothic Wray Castle - where kids can don fancy dress and live out their own fairy tales, or use huge foam blocks to build fantasy fortresses. After a long day outdoors, you'll love collapsing into one of the lodge's double, twin or family rooms, all with flatscreen TV and free WiFi. Refreshed and relaxed, come down* to our cosy pub and enjoy a well-earned tipple with some hearty, freshly cooked food. *Children are welcome to accompany parents or guardians eating in The White Lion's family dining area.
