“Compared to last time abit disappointed but still enjoyed both meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

We visited the bar a year ago on our first time staying in the Lake District and we decided to go two out of the three nights we were there, we got seated in perfect seats and everything was spot on, this year the experience was a little different, we decided to go again on our first night, we was shown to our seats which was on the smallest table in the restaurant in between two other tables which was packed and as there was only two of us we didn't want to be made to feel awkward, we ten asked for a bigger table in the other room but was told that is was for staff only, although I saw no staff sit at it for the whole 2 hours we were there, we normally order about 9 dishes and on one small table it's abit of a hassle with no where to move stuff, we then sat on another small table next to the staff table right in the walkway of the main stairs and a birthday party but this was all forgotten after a couple of cocktails, our food arrived and was brilliant again. The second thing was that last year I ordered a Kwak beer which came in the special glass advertised and was good fun to drink, so I decided to get another this year but I was disappointed when it reached our table as it came in an ordinary beer glass which took the point if ordering it away. We did go again the next night and was able to sit on a bigger table and again enjoyed the night and food as always and will be visiting again

“Spend a few hours in here.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

When ever we go to the Lakes we head straight to this bar first, and sit in the window sofas looking out at all the people passing by. There is a great selection of beers and they do great cocktails etc. You can eat in the dedicated Tapas restaurant upstairs, or simply order from the bar and eat downstairs. The food is hot and tasty but it is not the best that we have had, with a few corners being cut on some of the dishes. On an evening the bar has lots of subdued lighting with lots of twinkly lights, and a warm welcoming feel. Try it out.

“Food is out of this world.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Love this restaurant. Went for the first time 5 years ago on New Years Eve. Went back for our first wedding anniversary in October this year. The food is out of this world and the atmosphere and staff are brilliant. Made me feel like I wasn't in the rainy lakes but in Sunny Spain.
We're going back this New Year.

“A little bit of Spain in the Lakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

If it wasn't for the rain outside, you could really believe you were in Spain as this is an authentic Spanish bar, ran by Spanish staff and even many of the patrons seemed to be local Spanish families.

“Terrible service - walked out”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Terrible service - walked out after we sat in a relatively quiet restaurant for 20 mins and were not given menus or offered a drink.
