Lovely local friendly pub in the heart of Bowness. Just had drinks but could have stayed all night. Will definitely return next time we're in the area.

Been here a few times when visiting lakes. Good selection of real ales and warm real fire for November. Plenty outside space but not in November. Variety of good food to satisfy nibbles or full main courses and good value. If you like typical quaint village pubs then worth a visit.

Stopped off after my partner recalled it was a charming place to have a drink, and it is! Very good mulled wine, quirky decor and friendly staff. One small gripe was that local females were hogging the fire on a particularly cold day.

Highly recommend a visit to this little place to anyone going to Bowness! We found a little corner by the fire and easily lost a couple of hours without noticing. The staff were lovely, the choice of drinks good, the atmosphere was relaxing yet busy. Definitely going back next time! Although beware I did see some really tacky music on... More
