Just a very nice visit following a cruise on a cold grey Windermere. Warm and cosy. Five adults & one 7 year old. Pub busy but staff very friendly. Grab a table when you can - no bookings. Service was very good and the food excellent and very reasonably priced. Good quality pub grub with drinks also went down well.

Nice and cozy... More

Unspoiled traditional pub that doesn't need messing with. Friendly staff and good food. Please don't wreck any more of our pub's as there are not many left.

The food is nice (not amazing) but the staff are the worst people I have ever met. The bar man was rude and when another customer asked if he could pay by apple pay his reply was 'how am I supposed to know' they had no patience and can definitely say it's the worst service I have ever received.

Really nice pub. Very chilled out and nice atmosphere. We went on a Sunday evening and it wasn't too full at all, just the right amount of people to be not too hectic!
