Great Pub in the heart of Windermere. Full of character, good staff, good atmosphere and most importantly full of beer. Plenty of really good choices of craft beers and other drinks. Loved it there. Would recommend for an evening in Windermere, a must visit.

Hi, sadly not at the Crafty Baa. The only place I can think of would be the Baha which definitely has live music on Sat 13th but not too sure if anything on Sunday 14th. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
