We popped in for a drink before dinner. Pub a lot larger than expected. Beer good, wine not so good. Didn't stay for a second drink as pub was uncomfortably hot. Sheet on each table with comments / observations on ordering drinks is very funny.

Visited Bowness recently and found this to be a good friendly old fashioned pub. It does get very busy but be prepared to share a table and enjoy meeting people and having a good conversation. Lovely real fire with logs and coal.

This lovely pub was recommended to us and now we know why, everyone was so friendly, hubby tried a few local beers which he really enjoyed and the food was great, very generous portions. We called in a few times during our stay and were always made welcome. Next time we visit the Lakes we will call in again.

Good old fashioned pub with lovely open fire. Very busy but great atmosphere. Lots of different ages of people. Large area outside which would be lovely in the summer.

Brief stop for lunch. Quirky old pub with great helpful staff and plenty of choice on the menu, all reasonably priced.

Well worth a visit. Love real old school pubs. My only thing is there are not many ciders to choose from. In need of a cider on tap other than common strongbow which is everywhere.
