We ate at the Oak on a previous trip so knew where to go. After arriving in Bowness late on a wet and dark Friday night, we headed straight to the Oak for some dinner. I love this place more in the autumn and winter; nice, traditional, wooden floors, real fire, and pub grub. We love the fact that we can take our dog in there and still eat. I realise this doesn't suit everyone but it suited the other families too, about 4 others with dogs. Good local beers, good food, warm, welcoming and relaxing. Not really anything else you could ask for.

Excellent atmosphere, great choice of drinks and reasonably priced. We had a great time in this bar and would definitely visit again.

We visted for lunch. It was empty but the welcome was lovely.
They allow dogs in the non carpeted area, which also has a roaring fire. The menu was broad with plenty of choice and specials. The food was tasty and the chunky chips were the best ever! It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny.

Nice old pub with huge fire place, stove. but spoils the ambiance by having a wide screen tv above it. Unusual aspect was that they sold Salads on a cold and wet day.
