Fantastic little pub. Very traditional in style and ambience. We all loved it and regretted going to another pub afterwards for food. We all agreed we should have stayed there. Only down side was barman moaning quite openly about customers from previous night. Quite unprofessional. That aside, we had a great afternoon there.

During a weekend break in Bowness, we enjoyed a couple of 'lost hours' in this pub. Great log fire, warm welcome and friendly locals. Getting a seat can be pot luck, but it is worth getting your drinks and waiting for a table or space at the bar to become available. There is a great range of drinks available and... More

This is a wonderful cosy pub, especially on a cold winters day. Roaring log fire, good food and real ales. Favourite pub in bowness, with lots of history. Would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Just a very nice visit following a cruise on a cold grey Windermere. Warm and cosy. Five adults & one 7 year old. Pub busy but staff very friendly. Grab a table when you can - no bookings. Service was very good and the food excellent and very reasonably priced. Good quality pub grub with drinks also went down well.

I sat next to the fire on a chilly evening and enjoyed a nice pint of local brew and the mulled wine was tasty. This little Pub was a short walk from the hotel, the walls and ceiling were covered in a wide assortment of items to include a sheep's head. The bartenders were friendly and attentive. Nice and cozy... More
