Nice pub with lots of history. Staff very friendly. But food was not brilliant but presented well. Somewhat overpriced for what it was.

The pub and staff were fine,but the food and drink prices were greatly inflated to say the least! Unless you take out a second mortgage,don't bother with a night out here,it could cost you over 100 quid.Go to Wetherspoons in Kendal.Even with travel costs you will have a great night out for under 50 quid.Robinsons are using the history of...

Recommended by the crew from the Windermere Lake Cruises as a good pub to visit for lunch, they were spot on. We found a busy pub with good food and a good selection of drinks. There is some outside seating, otherwise inside the pub is very nice but watch out for the low beams and we would expect full tables... More

So whilst on holiday in the lakes we had been told to boat hole in t'wall..... Wow I'm so glad we did. We had a good drive out and a walk around (parking is difficult on a busy day) and went for some lunch, I ordered a cheese and ham ploughmans and hand cut chips.... Wow the amount of food... More

Very popular place to visit, lots of good beers, low beamed ceilings and loads of character. Food reasonably priced too and lots of it but not over keen on oven chips so it spoilt the meal for me really

We visited with friends on bank holiday Sunday. Really warm welcome. Great ales for the blokes and lots of prosecco for us girls. Fantastic food too. Wonderful service from Leanne. We'll definitely be back soon.

A group of us visited this pub after finishing the Dales Way walk. It is a lovely old bar, with a great atmosphere. There is a good range of beers. We ordered food, and the service was very quick. As well as the traditional pub grub favourites, there were about 5 different curries on offer. I had a Lamb Balti,... More

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.

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.
