“Cheap clean place to stay”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

Stayed here bank hol weekend. Really easy to find, plus you get a parking permit godsend in windermere. The staff were friendly and welcoming, £5 lunch menu great lots of choices and big portions too. Room clean but small lovely bed could do with a bit of updating but fine enough. Its 1.5 miles to the lake good crowd on a nite with live music. Nice big breakfast in a lovely restaurant i would defo stay again.

Went for Sunday roast and the carvery was only £8 but the quality of the food was poor. The roast beef was chewy, the potatoes and veg were soggy and tasteless. The staff were however helpful and friendly but would have preferred decent food.

We only had a drink in this excellent bar, the atmosphere was good but the selection of real ales was excellent, you can see why it is CAMRA recommended. The Bar Maid gave advice about each and a little taster to check whether it suited your palate was a nice touch. Shame we only found it on our second night in Winderemere or I could have tried all 5 ales !

We came here based on the recommendations on TripAdvisor. Lovely pub - looks like it has been refurbished recently. Was quite empty in the restaurant section, so the atmosphere was a bit quiet. The staff were lovely and very friendly. The food wasn't amazing to be honest, just average pub food (from the reviews I was expecting better than average). I had the chilli and it was okay. Good ales on tap though.

We stopped at " The Elleray" on our way up to Fort William.
When we arrived , we were greeted by friendly staff and were shown to our room.
The bedroom was clean, warm, the bed was comfortable, hot running shower.
We were informed that there was some work going on for the restaurant,
In the morning there was plenty of traffic noise, but being on the main street what more would you expect!!!!!
Breakfast was spot on, the full breakfast was excellent with real mushrooms, and lady kay also enjoyed her smoked haddock and poached eggs.
would like to say a big thank you to the owners ,who were so friendly and welcoming and couldnt be more helpful....

The Elleray is a lovely pub just as you enter Windermere
Top class pub food and drink and a nice social atmosphere
The room we were in was a large room with all necessary amenities, massive bathroom as well
Bit of damp in the corner above the bath needs a looking at though
Its quite noisy in the morning as its so close to a main road but there is nothing so off putting that wouldnt make me want to go back again
Not sure of the guy who runs the places name, but he is a lovely helpful fella who makes you feel that nothings a bother to him
Large Breakfasts on the morning all round
Yorkshire pudding filled with meat and chips yes please
Will we go back? Absolutley!!
