In fact, even if everywhere else is closed, get a bus to Ambleside. Called in for a pint to watch a football match, thinking of getting a snack with my pint, or maybe eating more formally after the game. I had a pint of the one cask ale on offer while I got the lie of the land. The beer was really poor, although delivered by a reasonably pleasant barmaid, while guy I took to be the manager rudely told another customer "it's Sunday we don't serve food after 3" as if it was unbelievable that somebody would be so silly as to ask. So decided to settle for crisps and a lager for the second half. The pub smelled of toilets, when I used the gents the reason was obvious, the floor was wet and filthy and you had no option but to walk that back over the carpet in the bar. I got a good view of the match in the big screen and the banter from the locals was entertaining, so I've given an extra star above what it was really worth.
