“Saturday Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Arrived at about 7.00 and jumped onto a table as a Coull were finishing. All tables were occupied so was expecting a wait. Ordered drinks and food. Partner ordered lamb shank I ordered fish and chips. Bar prices a bit steep. Wine average. Food arrived very promptly. Service was good. Food quality remarkably good. Portion sizes were large. Price was very good for the food. By 9.00 the pub was changing to disco mode with different clientele. Made a sharp exit at that point. Was impressed by the food and will return for sure.

A really clean and attractive bar with friendly service. If we had not been moving on we would have lingered longer!

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We came here the night before after eating at the restaurant opposite (which was good also) for a drink. We decided to come here for our dinner the next day after seeing other people's food. Though the food was a bit pricey, which was to be expected for the area of Bowness, it was still good. We had the burger... so glad we didn't have a starter. We were full.
I would have given full rating if it wasn't for the guy behind bar forgetting about the cocktail I ordered. He said he would bring them over. He disappeared without telling another staff member that we ordered the drinks. do had to go to the bar and day we ordered some drinks.
Apart from that the staff were friendly and experience was good.

“Superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

A lovely pub with good beers, and excellent food. Great value the dishes are large portions and very good quality ingredients.
The service is very good and the staff polite and helpful. Well worth a visit, if you have a good appetite the fish & chips are very good and the platters are superb.
