“Fantastic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic pub food. Better than expected and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended, especially on a wet and cold British winter day

“Great food excellent dining room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We were recommended this hotel and we were glad we found it, the food was great, the restaurant upstairs was of high quality, and cost was very reasonable. Would defiantly eat there again, when in Lake District . Staff very good.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Went here after reading the glowing reviews on TA. We shared the pork rib starter between 3 and there was plenty to go around,ribs were very tender the sauce had a spicy kick to it.We all had a burger which were standard pub style, reasonably tasty but I very much doubt they were home made as the menu claimed.This is my main complaint about this place,a lot of the items on the menu claimed to be home made (the rib sauce,the burgers and burger relish)but it seemed to us to have come from a jar or freezer.
Standard chain pub food, sadly this seems to be the norm these days.Had a much better lunch in the Angel Inn last week, a bit more expensive but superior quality.

Reasonably priced warm and friendly bar. Nice surroundings on two floors so no problem finding seats.

I've visited Bowness for a few years now but and enjoy trying various eateries tried the Albert again high quality large portions for hungry people but a word of warning to ensure you get what's on the menu get there early when I was there the place was very busy a good sign for any future customer
