Can highly recommend the early bird menu - order before 6.30 & get 2 courses for £12.45. Food & service was excellent! Staff went out of their way! Lovely contemporary atmosphere

Initially popped in here for an early evening drink before going for a meal but watching the food come out decided to stay (so glad we did !)
The service was excellent (the best so far) and the food was amazing we had the fish sharing platter which was lovely and then the fish and chips both served on wooden platters.
Would have stayed longer but a group of rather noisy youngsters came in and it all got a bit loud (god I sound like my mother!) .
The only reason we didn't go again is that we had promised ourselves to try as many different restaurants as we could in our weeks stay in Ambleside.
This was not on our recommended list of Restaurants given by the cottage but have made sure it is on the list now.
Highly Recommend if you're in Ambleside.

Dropped in here on a Saturday night. There was a good fun blues rock band playing very well, great drinks, smashing atmosphere.
My only regret is that we didn't eat here, as the food is meant to be great.

A lovely bar with a great atmosphere, went in for drinks after a meal but wished we had eaten here too as the food looked delicious.
