Great bar with live music at weekends. Suits most age groups. Not a real ale drinker but tried a Cricket Bat of 3 one third pints of 3 different ales and then tried another. Novel idea and added to the experience.

Would return. Few other options in Grasmere.

...because the customer before me was having what looked like a hot chocolate being prepared and when the barman finished stirring it - spoon straight into his mouth and onto the prep bar.
Big question is - was a fresh spoon used for the next hot drink?? Or did he use the spoon that last visited his tonsils? Only he knows!
So, stick with the beers, they are always good. The food is pricey for what you get, it's bar food at posh hotel prices.
Despite my negative comments, Tweedie's remains the best bar in Grasmere and it's where we always head for a good ale. Forget the hot chocolate!

It surprises me that none of the hotels in Grasmere serve real ale so the only place to go is Tweedies Bar which also does a good line in pub food and holds regular live music nights. Rough, ready, warm and welcoming it fills a gap in the market that no-one else does.

We visited our favourite Grasmere bar on 23rd and 24th October for welcome drinks after fellwalking. The quality and selection of the draught beers was up to the usual high standard. The sole barman on duty on the 23rd was not particularly welcoming and had a very surly attitude ( his accent semed to be American). However, normal friendly service was resumed on the 24th with two excellent local barmen on duty.

Along a side road away from the center of Grasmere, we fell into this restaurant on a wet autumn day and couldn't have felt more at home with other hikers, dog owners and beer lovers. Ordered the beer bat so we could sample several excellent real ales. Food was tasty and quickly served despite the crowds. We'll be back.
