We visited The Angel twice for evening meals during our recent stay in Bowness. Very friendly staff and a great atmosphere. On both occasions the food was excellent, two delicious ploughman's first visit and two beautifully presented and well cooked meals on the second. A great choice of well kept cask ales for me and plenty of wines on offer... More

The atmosphere was friendly with good staff and there was a good range of food on the menu. The view sitting on the outside tables was also very good overlooking parts of lake Windermere. A good all rounder for... More

Recommended by Michelin guide 2016, drowe us to this establishment in the first place. We visited in Juli and the place was very busy, why booking a table in advance is a good idea. The food was very nice, the staff busy and the prices afordable. All in All an okay experience.

It appeared very nice from outside but very busy, noisy and a tad too warm inside. Food looked very expensive for what it was by watching it being delivered. Noise was the biggest issue. Nice if you like so much hustle and bustle. X

We have often walked past but for some reason never ventured in so as we were looking for a place to relax after getting married a couple of days previous we took a stroll up the steep steps to the Angel Inn. A lovely place inside and... More

Tucked back from the main road up the hill to Windermere, this plush inn has great views over rooftops to the fells. The inside looked modern and chic. A superfood salad and a poached pear salad were excellent - full of different flavours, kids ham, egg and chips judged best meal of weeks holiday. Sticky toffee pudding was heavenly.
