Called in whilst staying in Bowness, the ambiance, food, wine & Guinness exceeded expectations.
When again in the area will call in again.

We stayed in Bowness for a week and visited the Albert for a drink with a view to having a meal on Sunday 4th November around 7pm. It was busy however the service and attitude of the bar staff was appalling, we just assumed they had a busy day therefore we had a drink and went to eat elsewhere. Later in the week we decided to try again and once again the service at the bar was again dire however we ordered a meal due to the menu looking very good. The food arrived and all credit to the chef it was amazing however not once did a member of the waiting and or bar staff ask if the meal was ok.

Good Mornig
Thank you for your comments regarding your recent visits to The Albert.
I am so sorry you had a bad experience with the service. I wonder if you could let me know what evening, apart from the Sunday you came into the Albert to eat. I would like to look at our rotas and see who was working, then, hopefully I will be able to deal with the staff involved on that night. Thank you for your time and I assure you I will look into this further.
Kind regards
Sonja Cook

Stopped in here for lunch on a very wet, quite Bowness after taking the ferry from Waterhead, it just wasn't a day for the fells. We seemed to have found the tourist population of Bowness in here, the place was very busy for 1230 on a Friday.

We decided on the lunch menu cod and chips for around £5.50, the meals came quickly and were very good. The ale wasn't bad either and would not hesitate in returning here if in the area again.

We had dined here before and knew that the menus were really varied and tasty. There was also a good selection of real ales to complement the food on offer. I would recommend this pub to anyone visiting Bowness on Windermere for a meal or just a drink.
