Always our first port of call when we visit Windermere. It's in a great location to people watch and just chill out and watch the world go by. There is always a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, a fantastic selection of food and drinks to choose from. The staff are very well mannered. I will definitely be coming back to this... More

Stopped here this morning for a brew to warm up and a light breakfast to keep us going until lunch. The staff are great and served up a decent sausage butty with scrambled egg.

We stopped in for a cocktail in the early evening. The place was quite busy. The decor is nice and the cocktails were delicious. The location is good in the centre of the town with a nice outlook to watch the world go by.

As we are in Manchester, it would have been difficult to go over there to pay the bill so the manager let me pay an upfront cost over the phone and then phoned me after their meal with... More

With big glass windows on 2 sides, the first floor seating area is perfect for watching the world go by. Had a light lunch in a nice relaxed atmosphere. Not the most exciting menu in the world, but there's something for most tastes. Shame about the "guaranteed to dribble" stainless steel teapots...I thought they had stopped selling them about 20...

Sitting in the Windows upstairs was great for seeing life going on in Winderemere. The tables are quite small and the plates big which can be a bit of a juggle for space. The staff were pleasant and food came quite quick once ordered. We both ordered lamb dishes, lamb burger which was average tasting couldn't taste all the stated... More
