We had a quick lunch here before walking round the lake. The famous Fish Inn was closed but this was an excellent alternative. Right in the middle of the village (though you have to pay for parking), this is a real pub - i.e. unpretentious and dog-friendly where muddy walkers can come without feeling out of place (they even have a drying room). Lots of local ales. The food came quickly and was excellent - a prawn sandwich and generous salad with a basket of real HAND CUT chips - not the tasteless frozen things you find everywhere else. An excellent start to our afternoon in Buttermere.
