This bar is part of the Patterdale Hotel. The hotel has a restaurant which seems to be mainly for residents' use. (We did ask for a table one evening, but were told hotel was busy so no spare tables.)
The lounge is nicely decorated with modern wall paper and seat coverings, plus beautiful glass photographs. The carpet is traditional looking and perhaps wasn't replaced during the makeover.
We ate here twice. Both times we ordered as soon as the kitchen opened and the food came very quickly. The first night's salmon was good and fairly tasty. The next night the plaice was rather dry and flavourless. It came with roasted veg and chips which were both good. Nothing exciting really, but it was good solid food in decent portions which was welcome after a day on the hills.
There were only a couple of tables which were comfortable for eating at, the rest of the tables were low, which would mean bending over to eat. There are lots of tables outside.
Staff were pleasant.
We chose to eat here rather than a nearby pub, due to the strong smell of chip fat in the pub on the occasion we popped in for a drink.
