“Great cosy pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The top of the bar is the best spot with the open fire but this was too busy to eat so sat in the lower bar - food was typical pub grub, typical lakes prices and very large portions! Good option if you are really hungry.

“Nice Pint after horrendous journey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

After a drive which took over 2 hours longer than expected due to snow closing roads it was good to enter this warm and welcoming establishment. We orfered a "Ploughman's" which was large enough to feed 2. The wood burners are very effective and staff very friendly. We called in a few times during our long weekend.

“Great atmosphere and food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

After a recent visit to Bowness, stumbled on this lovely public house. With an open roaring fire, just what we needed after some unseasonal weather, we decided to purchase food. With quite an extensive menu, we purchased open prawn sandwich and chips. The sandwich came with side salad and home made coleslaw, and was crammed with prawns (lovely). Great portion sizes to fill you up all afternoon. This place does get quite busy and had a really good atmosphere. Worth a visit for a reasonably priced and good sized bar meal.
