Came up to the Lake District on holiday always come here to eat as I work for the same company who runs this pub. Lovely pub inside and out. Good was lovely and price even better. Nice atmosphere and very friendly bar staff, defiantly recommend this pub to anyone.

This is a cute little pub in the middle of ambleside and was certainly busy. The inside is a little dated and drab but that was ok and there was a nice selection of ales on tap which was nice. The food is what really let this place down - I am afraid that the burger was the most revolting burger I have ever been served - I was like a microwave burger, and had a sort of gunge coming out of it! Topped with a cheap plastic cheese square and a soggy bun it was very dissapointing. The wedgest that came with it were again the cheapest of the cheap dry oven wedges. All in all a terrible meal - not at all what I expected of a nice lake district pub. I would not be recommending this place to anyone wanting to eat!

Lovely lively little pub right in the middle of town, great selection of drinks and lots of space to sit inside and out.

We called in just before 4.30 and were drawn to the chalk board saying food served until 5.00. Whilst looking ta the menu it was promptly taken away at 4.30 last orders for food, no notice or sign. Not impressed really. The food we saw looked very presentable

We were staying in Ambleside & were pleased to find this pub which is ideally situated in the centre of the village. Staff friendly & food was good. Good choice of real ales. We chose to eat lunch here. Always busy, good prices & longer lunch times provided 12 - 5pm which was better than lots we looked at in Ambleside which were 12 -2pm
