Just sat in the Ambleside tavern with the wife having had two lovely pub grub large burgers on the half price deal between 4pm and 7pm. Great value on all the burgers on the menu. Polite staff and good beer as well.

We are in this pub and have just eaten lunch. Excellent. My husband and friend have just had beef stew and dumplings and they say it's the best pub grub they have had in ages. Plus they are drinking out of barrel glasses

Cumbria has some great pubs and the Ambleside Tavern is a member of that wonderful club. Excellent run pub with a good choice of ales. (B).
