“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We were recommended this pub and I can see why. The food is just ordinary food but the quality is fantastic with huge portions.

We visited on New Years Eve, and we did not need to book, and there was none of those "New Years Eve entry fee" stuff.

Food came quickly, freshly cooked and obviously cooked not just heated up in a turbo oven (makes a change from so could gastro pubs)
If you are in Bowness and not visited this pub before. The staff are really friendly, and even when "run off their feet" on New Years Eve they are always smiling and joking

2nd year running for us having Christmas dinner here and this year was even better if that is possible!
Seriously folks there are many Pubs and Restaurants in our village - all lovely - but this place really does take some beating!
15 of us booked in and we had a hard time walking home we were so stuffed:)
The Pub was decorated as always beautifully, music not too loud, attentive staff everywhere - smiling to the end, perfectly cooked food, piping hot, serving times bang-on and the ambiance fantastic.
Such a great bunch of people, runs like clockwork every time, very very pleased...thanks guys, you were great:)

Last week we had our yearly School Meal at The Albert Hotel, We were not impressed. On my table alone the gap between the first main course and the last main course was around 20 minutes, I did not think that created the best impression, I have been told by my friends that the previous years were much better so something must have changed, I ordered a rare steak and got a well done steak which was cold. The staff were not friendly at all and made the experience uncomfortable. On the other hand the chips were good. I do not rate this establishment and hope that next year the school goes elsewhere.

I have been there having lunch. The place is very nice, good ambience, the dishes looked very appealing. I think i made a mistake ordering the burger. The bread and the chips were excellent but the meat was poor, so salty, probably from frozen and not made on that place

My daughter and I had Sunday lunch at this hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food excellent with a choice of roast meats. Generous portions and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
