Nice place very close to lake Windermere. Great atmosphere. We went after a long hike in Lake District. Descent food: Meat pies were FULL of meat! Large sticky toffee puddings.

One of my all time fave snug little pubs to venture in. Been here countless times with family, friends and it's always a hit. With its roaring fire, oldy-worldy-ness and cosy atmosphere, it's the perfect way to relax after a walk. The lady recommended us a Brockmans gin, which we enjoyed that much we had to come back the next... More

Lovely atmosphere...not sure about all the dead animals on the walls....but overall nice drinks, nice staff, nice vibe. On the way out there was a drunk man on the floor and an ambulance had been called....but I guess that happens in any pub at some point!

I love this place, the oldest pub in Bowness with low beams slate floors and a very warm and friendly welcome. The food is good and so is the range of beers on sale. I can't go the lakes without calling in its perfect.

Great pub with charm and character Very busy of an evening with many locals too so get in early if you want a seat. Food looked appetising but we didn't eat when visited. Great selection of cask ales Would return for a visit

Has a great olde pub thing going on but utter tourist trap - £3.95 for about 200ml of mulled cider is taking the p. A place we'll not be returning to.
