We live in Windermere and we frequently visit the watermill. My parents were visiting from London and we decided to take them for the Christmas lunch. We had a table in the right bar area next to a fireplace/kitchen
Food was excellent (as always). Good choice in wine. Our waitress was lovely and so were the two lads who also bought out some of our dishes. Good choice in ales. Very big plus for us is that they let dogs into the left bar area!. Will return soon!

We have passed this many times on our travels but last weekend we decided to stop for a bite to eat.

Firstly, 16 cask ales on offer, most brewed on site....need I say more. I sampled one, and it was delightful. I had the beef Sunday lunch which was great and my wife had a chicken dish, which she said was the nicest and most tender chicken she'd ever had.

Don't just drive by, stop and sample the food and ales. Well worth it.

Went back after some time away and took visitors from another country with us. We really over-sold the place because it has changed. Food is now very average when it used to be first class. Do not mind a place being dog friendly but they were asleep on the dining room chairs!!! The ales are still as good if not better though as they now have their own micro brewery. Will not be going back as we felt very much like 'outsiders' This is now, more than ever, a locals pub.

Visited here before place was dark and dingy and cold in the lounge , food was ok but for the price you would expect fresh veg not reheated carrots, again prawn salad lacked prawns and skin was left on kiwi fruit , never mind it did fill a corner and hope the lakes has better to offer .....

Frequent visitor here. Must stop overnight sometime as the beer range is remarkable and so well kept that it shames other pubs. Beer was on average 70p a pint cheaper than the same local brew in Langdale (£2.80 cp £3.50) earlier in the day and better tasting too. Food is typical pub grub, but there are specials too. Watermill chicken was brilliant, but the fish and chips less so this time...cooked ok, but not great quality. Staff and service great as always. Recommended.
