“New Year's Eve”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Myself & my husband ate at Tweedies on New Year's Eve - we were in for the 1st sitting (6.30) & then we moved through to the bar. The meal was lovely but there were alot of courses which to be fair, we had paid for so that was not an issue (although we had to be rolled out!!). A smaller menu would have been a nice option. By the time we moved through to the bar it was getting busy (obviously) & we had to share tables with other people - this was not a problem at all & added to the party atmosphere. The staff were pushed but we didn't wait long at the bar. There were a few people (mainly 1 group) moaning about various things & trying to let everyone else know how unhappy they were but I think it may have been the amount of alcohol they had rather than any issue with Tweedies as most people seemed to be very happy. It isn't a particularly child friendly place but then again, it is a pub & it was very busy (with adults consuming alcohol). All in all we had a really good night & the fireworks at New Year were fantstic!! Thankyou to all the staff for making it such a good night.

Our second time eating at this establishment and didn't disappoint, though like everywhere in the Lakes it's not cheap

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Tweedies is a (smallish) bar and restaurant attached to a hotel. When we visited Grasmere in January not many places were open so we were pleased to find a restaurant. The bar looked good and it has a great selection of beers from around the world. The restaurant was a bit small and the benches were dilapidated and uncomfortable - we moved to another table where there were chairs and we think this annoyed the waitress quite a bit, unfortunately. Our food was a bit uninspiring but the wine was good. Overall, not a bad place but not as good as we'd hoped.

Good food, excellent range of beers and friendly helpful staff. Book a table for dinner then head back into the bar later. Often have local performers on at weekends.
