After visiting the very quiet bar the other week we were informed the downstairs cellar bar was open. Expecting a warm welcome because of how quiet they were. We were ignored by a rude red haired woman who clearly didn’t know what she was doing...More

Dingy, dirty, well worn bar. The fixtures were tatty and the decor in need of a refurb. Probably a 'cool place' to hang out for the younger generation but not for us. Has a 'happy hour' and offers on drinks.

Stumbled across the entrance for this cellar bar in the centre. Tried it out anyway, crossed between a Student bar and Goth bar. It had sport on the big tv's which was a good thing and decent prices!

Visited the cellar bar a few times on my holiday to Ambleside and really enjoyed it! Visited mostly with my boyfriend and his younger brother due to there being a free pool table inside which was great fun. This was in a slightly secluded area...More
