Description: Lucy4 Wine Bar & Bistro is tucked away in the backstreets of Ambleside and is a combination of cockt4ils, wines, continental and local bottled beers, soft drinks, together with a wide range of mix and match style food ... it's not exactly tapas in that the portions are bigger than tapas and a little more interesting in variety. It's a fun and fiendish place 4 everyone ... Ideal 4 Individuals, Perfect 4 Parties, Cosy 4 Couples and Fun 4 Families. Live Acoustic guitar most Sundays from 9pm. Open daily from 5pm and last food orders at 10.30pm. Set on two levels, with entrances at both - outside decking area as well as small, compact bar area. Friendly staff, all in all an interestingly, different dining experience - if you do anything ... do a chocolate fondue - be a Devil and try Lucy4!

After a big day hiking about and after a night in Zefirellis, we decided to have a wander and follow our noses. Very glad we found this place. It was different, with a good menu and great food. The service was great and friendly, we were browsing the menu outside earlier and bumped into the manager who recommended it highly.
Local bottled beers, quirky decor, relaxed atmosphere, lots of candles, outside area with tables, split level. All good and clean.
I really liked it and can say that a change is good when eating out in Ambleside because there are an awful lot of 'Traditional Pubs' serving 'Traditional Fayre' but theses seem to be tourist traps and low quality.
Go Local and be different. It was highly recommended.

Good hearty tapas is to be found here in a nice rustic setting. A nice change from your usual Lake District fayre. Prices are reasonable and staff were very helpful when deciding what to eat. Tricky to find down a side street if you don't know it's there.

We went at lunchtime so it was busy, and being child-friendly had quite a few young families in. However, service and food were excellent. Lucy's provide gluten-free and vegetarian food so all my family were catered for.

Visited on Sat 19thOct 2013. Pleasant surroundings but a little pricey for two glasses of wine. One merlot and one blush rose.

Did not know what to expect when presented with a huge menu, but what a great meal it turned out to be. Dining with friends we chose 8/9 dishes and each one was a delight to eat, we had sufficient food and could not manage to eat a pudding. The ribs were to die for. Would certainly visit again when next in Ambleside.
