“Terrific old pub for lunch brimming with character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Wandering around Bowness we found this and popped in for lunch and a pint. Great pub food and lots of old-building quirks and charms. Many locals and/or tourists were enjoying early spring sunshine at the outside tables. Glad we found this place! And the Dickens connection is fun too.

“Fisrt visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

I visited here based on the historical links with the pub and who in the past has visited (Charles Dickens?) The pub is a cosy authentic English pub which serves real ales. For the squeamish there hangs some dead animals amongst the beer mugs this is part and parcel I would guesse of capturing the authenticiyt and historical links. A roaring open fire greets one on arrival. Im not drinker put coffeee and soft drinks are on hand with free newspapers.

A different and authentic pub. A pleasant change to the average Jo highstreet weatherspoons etc.

“A proper pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I visit this pub alot, and this review is long overdue. The hole in't wall provides great beer, great food and a great atmosphere, what more could you want. My partner says its his favourite pub in all the world, and it is hard too disagree. In winter a roaring fire and cosy seats give you a welcome retreat from the cold. In summer a lovely beer garden in which to watch the world go by. The staff are really welcoming and friendly, and complete the traditional friendly local feel. This is how pubs used to be, and how more should be.
