Enjoyed lovely cocktails one rainy afternoon, really knowledgeable barman who knew his stuff and would highly recommend the Porn Star Martini. A few more cushions, candles etc would have added to the comfort and most wine bars do put a few little salty nibbles out with your drinks which would have been nice....a win for the bar too as you...

Great wine and cocktail bar with a small outside seating area and the most helpful barman. He was so polite and made suggestions as to what we could try next. Management should be very proud of the customer service he provides, he was the reason we returned three nights running. Wish I'd got his name so you could give him... More

We picked Lucy4 as my girlfriend had visited previously for tapas. They have stopped serving food at this location and have moved food over the main restaurant across the street, Lucy's On A Plate (please see our other review). We were the only people in at 5pm on a Thursday night, never the less, the barman Nico (Polish fella from... More

Went in for a glass of wine but we decided to stay and down 2 bottles between 4 of us. Lovely staff giving excellent reviews and recommendations on wine. Definately worth a visit.

The barman could have sold us anything at any price but instead recommended a £15 bottle of Grillo that we had never tried before, it was excellent, well done!

Visited here with a few work colleagues and found it very good. There was eight of us, and so we found that having a 'meze' and sharing all the dishes - was in ideal option. There was nothing we didn't like, we had lots of different dishes - too many to mention individually! The wine flowed and the service and... More

Lucy4 Wine Bar & Bistro is tucked away in the backstreets of Ambleside and is a combination of cockt4ils, wines, continental and local bottled beers, soft drinks, together with a wide range of mix and match style food ... it's not exactly tapas in that the portions are bigger than tapas and a little more interesting in variety. It's a fun and fiendish place 4 everyone ... Ideal 4 Individuals, Perfect 4 Parties, Cosy 4 Couples and Fun 4 Families. Live Acoustic guitar most Sundays from 9pm. Open daily from 5pm and last food orders at 10.30pm. Set on two levels, with entrances at both - outside decking area as well as small, compact bar area. Friendly staff, all in all an interestingly, different dining experience - if you do anything ... do a chocolate fondue - be a Devil and try Lucy4!
