Food was reasonable, great pub with good vibes, very helpful and friendly staff. We lucked in, they had great fun live music the night we were there. In a place of many options its well worth a visit

“Fantastic old pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

As soon as you walk in there's an incrediable atmosphere. Great place to drop in any time. We've only drunk there but the bar food looks home made and wholesome.

“Great little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Wonderful atmosphere and excellent selection of cask ales.
There's a quiet side and a one with a juke box but the distance between them means the one does not disturb the other.

“Hole in t'Wall, Bowness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Classic English pub, fine ales on tap, tasty grub to order, staff are helpful and atmosphere is cosy. A pub full of features, old collectibles and real personality. One of the oldest pubs in the lake district. Well worth a visit.

Food is good but not outstanding.

Recommended.

“A great pub with a great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Popped in on a fleeting visit to Bowness....and ended up missing the boat back to Ambleside.....it was well worth the taxi fare though. Great atmosphere and really friendly staff and customers.
