Popped in for food, though not offering a great menu, the food was delicious. Staff was friendly to let you try on different beer/lager before you decided. Quiz on Monday night, and it was fun. People drinking in pub were friendly and so were the pets they brought in.

It's true what they say about visiting locations the locals prefer to visit. We enjoyed a gammon and egg meal, whilst drinking some fine ales. Food was lovely. Of course it's pub food, however prepared well, a decent portion and tasty. The staff were friendly and well mannered. Best of all, it was not having (although this is a Monday... More

We visited here as somewhere convenient on the first night of our stay. Everything about this place is excellent. We both had the gammon and eggs, which was well cooked and the portion sizes are great. A bit more than you'd normally pay for pub food but not overpriced and to be honest worth every penny as the quality is... More

Found this place by accident while out for a walk and glad we did. Food was lovely and reasonably priced as very good quality, staff were amazing and couldn't do enough to help you. Beer garden is lovely when the sun is shining. Will def return when I'm back in Windermere

ウインダミヤでの最後の夕食をここで食べました。一言で言いますと、ここは地元の人が行く地元のワイルドなパブという感じです。旅行者でここに来ているは私たち夫婦のみの模様です。入り口の近くに座っておられたご老人の方とちょっと言葉を交わしたが、地元の方々という感じです。 料理はワイルド。サンドイッチとフィッシュアンドチップスをオーダーしたら、巨大なフィッシュアンドチップスが出てきた。値段は高くなく、味もなかなか。よかった。 We had our las dinner at this pub. I would say that this is a wild pub that local people visit. It seems that we are the only travelers who visited to this pub. I had a chance to talk with old men shortly, probably they are local people. We had sandwich and Fish & Chips. They are... More

Served fresh lamb pie, which was very tasty. Had to have potatoes rather than chips, as they had no chips left, which suggests they use frozen ones. My partner also had the pie and enjoyed it. There were several real ales to choose from, my blonde ale was well kept and refreshing. We only stayed an hour or so, but... More

Stop by while waiting for our train. Its actually a nice pub which is family friendly with an awesome bar crew. Decent bites at decent prices. There is a nice view from the dining room at the back. It is a short hop away from the station. good selection of local ales and the burger the size of your head.

The food was really tasty and catering for 9 of us at peak season was no trouble even though we did it have a reservation. Well worth a visit and we will definitely be returning next April when we visit Winderemere again.

We had been staying in the B and B opposite (The Cottage: also excellent.) This was our first stop for a drink after arriving from London and we made it our last place for lunch before heading back. Warm welcome both times, lovely lunch - fully loaded sandwiches and chips- sat on the terrace in the sun. Relaxing end to... More
