Very welcoming place for a few drinks. Just the pub on this very cold night, open fire burning nicely, keeping us nice and toasty. Pretty quiet on this Sunday visit so able to get a seat which was very welcome after a day on our feet.

Friendly staff. Great beer. Amazing pub food and lovely rum. Coupled with a nice jukebox. This is a good locals pub and it's nice to see a Robinson's pub that serves great beer.

Lovely local friendly pub in the heart of Bowness. Just had drinks but could have stayed all night. Will definitely return next time we're in the area.

A quirkey pub with real ales and live entertainment. A good friendly atmosphere. A real fire and old fashioned window seats a must visit when in Bowness

Been here a few times when visiting lakes. Good selection of real ales and warm real fire for November. Plenty outside space but not in November. Variety of good food to satisfy nibbles or full main courses and good value. If you like typical quaint village pubs then worth a visit.

Stopped off after my partner recalled it was a charming place to have a drink, and it is! Very good mulled wine, quirky decor and friendly staff. One small gripe was that local females were hogging the fire on a particularly cold day.

Popped in here for a post-dinner drink. It's a very popular pub, with tourists and locals a plenty. It's a fairly small bar area and seats were sparse. But it's a lovely old place. We loved the display of curiosities on the beams, ceiling, walls etc.Good choice of draft beers. I liked the idea of the offer of a 1/3... More
