We visited here recently for a Sunday lunch during our stay at Bowness and it really was delicious. We all chose different meats and all commented on the high quality of each one and the profficiency of cooking also. The veg was of great quality and cooked to perfection - no soggy sprouts and a lovely carrot and I think... More

I've been here a few times at different times of year and afternoons and evenings, and I can honestly say I haven't had a bad experience. It's a very popular pub in bowness and has a gr3at atmosphere, with a broad client base. Pets are also welcome but not intrusive, compliments to their owners. The pub itself serves good food...

Nice atmosphere and good selection of foods. We had fish and chips and a fish burger, the portions were huge. It defeated me and I had to leave some. good value and a nice meal.

This pub was recommended by our hotel. When we entered the venue it was packed with mainly locals who were territorial about seating. Despite someone leaving and offering me their seat, a neighboring patron promptly evicted me stating that her son was supposed to be seated there. Even though he was nowhere in site. Staff were exceptionally unhelpful, maybe because... More

We recently ate at the Albert. The food was amazing. We chose from the specials menu and it was fantastic value for the money. It was presented beautifully. We also chose to go in for just drinks the night before and it was so comfortable and friendly. Will definitely return when we go back to Bowness

Called in on a november evening. Lashing down outside not a soul about but that's because they were all in here ! Cosy fires and friendly staff. Portions are humongous and left three quarters of mine ! Reasonably priced pub food but very tasty just far too much of it ! Dog friendly too

Ate here twice on a recent visit to Bowness - food was excellent on both occasions and other restaurants in the area don't come close. Busiest pub in Bowness by a long chalk and this is reflected in the relaxed, casual atmosphere.
