My wife & I stayed in Ambleside for a week in June & enjoyed a couple of drinks here on three occasions sat out in the beer garden which is secluded & quite well used. The condition of the beer here is really good the landlord is obviously proud to present his beers in tip top condition.
You will have to drink & enjoy the pub along with locals which in the main is ok I am sure they are bread & butter to the pubs economy, however & this is a comment for the landlord to take note of & is by no means a critic of the pub itself.
'One afternoon I noticed a woman a couple of benches away having a drink & a smoke with her pipe smoking husband obviously locals, the woman I noticed having 8 cigarettes only managed to get one tab end in the ashtray which at all times was just inches from her elbow 5 of these tab ends were just thrown to the ground & stamped out the other 2 were just flicked into the wall & still the said ashtray was there at hand all the time, I would think the landlord would be fully justified to have a word with this woman & point out the facilities available for the disposal of cigarette butts.
