I have never had a "roast" chicken where it was so dry you could hardly get your knife through it before, until now. Also the sticky toffee pudding. Over £5 for something we actually watched being microwaved. Money for old rope.

Was in Bowness for the weekend and visited for drinks 3 times :-) Nice bar with lovely views over Windermere. Decent food choice. They have a doggie friendly area and show live football on screens around the pub.

Visited last night for a meal. Quite disappointed overall. Chilli was bland and others in group complained about this also. Was looking forward to eating here as it was busy most of the week. Staff were good. Better food can be found nearby
