We were a walking party of six that booked into the ODG. Our previous experience of the ODG had been in the Walkers' Bar which is noisy, sometimes unpleasant and does not trust its customers with glass! As a resident the experience is totally different. The welcoming lady on reception (Sue?) helped with a host of minor external issues we faced on arrival. The wonderful Eva, our server in the restaurant, made a good meal even better and the residents' lounge must be one of the best places to meet fellow walkers in the whole of the Lakes. Just one thing stops me giving 5 stars to the ODG. I'm afraid the bar service in the residents' bar was poor and was made to seem poorer still by a barman who insisted on reminding anyone who wanted a drink that he had a queue of people waiting in the Walkers' Bar. That's not his fault and, maybe, the management need to think about increasing staffing, but he could have handled the situation without being so short with a group of people who were spending a lot more than the smaller number of folk in the other bar.
