Tucked away down a side street in Bowness on Windermere. A friendly lively establishment with decent food. A nice outside area with a big umberella for the unpredictable weather. Worth a visit.

Great pub.. Lovely atmosphere.. We found the back room utterly spooky and was creeped out but it's cool and staff are lovely x

A very limited pub grub menu but what we had was well-cooked - only starters and mains. We did not see any evidence of desserts. The staff were friendly.

Staff are fabulous. The place is quirky and the food was delicious. Great portions and great value. This place is right up my street! Unfortunately we were driving so couldn't take advantage of all the ales.

this pup was a real find, its tucked away off the main street, there is a good range of beers to choose from, the decor is old pub style with a great atmosphere created by locals and tourists all having a laugh together. You are really made welcome as soon as you walk through the door. We didnt eat here... More

Hidden Gem in Bowness. This pub has so much character and is so cosy. Had drinks only early in the day but the lunches going past before we left looked amazing. Will visit again for sure.

A very quaint pretty outside area, I never went inside as it was a beautiful day and my husband went for our drinks. There was a good choice of drinks I opted for strawberry pims which was delicious, will definitely be back.

Called for a quick meal. Great atmospheric pub full of history which was tucked away in a side street away from the traffic. Lovely food, we had three starters which were nachos, squid and prawns which were all great. Nice cold beers to top it off. Highly recommended.
